IMBD Details :

My Rating: 8.5/10

Category: Comedy

My take: Very good direction, Original storyline. Well supported by good acting (except those of girls). The B&W Comedy is very mind refreshing & often poetic. Donot forward during songs.

Biwi aur makan




My Rating: 6/10

Category: Drama with sacrifice, love & unwanted revenge.

Decent storyline, but bit stretched, especially the part involving character of Ruby Bhatia. I de-rated because of that reason only. Usual trade mark acting by Amitabh, Rakhee & Vinod Mehra. Got some really lovely songs like “yeh kashmir hai” etc.





My Rating: 5/10

Category: Drama intended to spread a social message.

A hypothetical storyline intended to spread a message against suicides. Again a bit stretched with un-necessary involvement of Deven Verma etc. But a good story spreading social message. I felt title bit off, going by the storyline.





My Rating: 7/10

Category: Comedy.

A typical HR movie shot on middle class family of 1970’s Bombay. A good mind refreshing comedy, but bit stretched at end. It looked like HR wanted to emulate success of Golmaal & Chupke Chupke in this movie as well & so ended up stretching a bit more. Anyways a good movie to watch with family n kids, to have a laughter filled weekend.

Rang Birangi




My Rating: 5/10

Category: Comedy.

This is not a HR movie. Directed by Kalidas with Kishore Kumar, Madhubala & Pran in lead roles. I gave a rating high, for the reason it was still early years for Bollywood. I liked the idea of animation, typical acting of Kishore Kumar. The film certainly looked testing ground for Kishore Kumar’s acting & singing. Again at the end bit stretched & title off the storyline.
