Storyline

Siddhant Rai is a single father, looking after three young children. All four of them live a wealthy and comfortable lifestyle, which changes suddenly when Siddhant passes away after a car accident. Siddhant's shady relatives hire a former jailbird and con-man by the name of Shekar to pose as their paternal uncle, Raju, which he does for a hefty sum of money. When Raju is introduced to the children, he is an instant hit with them, as well as their Catholic governess, Anna. Then the Rai family are stunned when another young man enters their lives - claiming to be the real Raju Chacha. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One of the better movies that bollywood has produced
26 September 2011 | by shivams-coolSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite childhood movies. Unfortunately it was not a very big hit probably because it had a totally different taste from conventional bollywood movies especially the tragic accident scene which brutally hurts you but still is definitely a commendable job. The music score also fits the movie plot perfectly.

When I first saw it, I thought they might provide a sequel to it but it never happened. Overall it was one the good movies that bollywood can ever produce. I recommend it. Also, it's definitely not an "only for children" movie. Some also criticize it to be a copy of "The Sound of Music" but then many great movies have been copies: Did you know that Sholay was also a copy!!??
