Chachi 420 (1997) Poster

Desperation to be with his only child forces a divorced man to take the guise of the child's nanny. Situations get really messy when the child's grandfather (the man's ex-father-in-law) falls in love with his disguised ex-son-in-law.

Overindulgent but fun remake of Mrs Doutfire
Kamal Hasan remakes Mrs Doubtfire and gives an inspired performance as Mrs Luxmi Godbole, a god-fearing Maharashtrian matriarch. 'Chachi 420' itself is a bit of a mess. The film is overlong with messy subplots and Tabu is strangely lackluster. Yet Kamal Hasan makes it worthwhile with his superb comic timing. It does get overindulgent at times with some unnecessary songs. Amrish Puri is good as usual. Om Puri has a brief but funny cameo. There are some risqué scenes involving Nasser, so family audiences beware. Still, the film is well worth watching on television or DVD.

Overall 6/10
