Seriously , this movie is one of the top Hindi comedies . Its storyline is similar to MRS. DOUBTFIRE so I won't go into elaborating the details . I did not know Gulzar saab was so good at writing comedy... Full review

This movie is completely different than Mrs. Doubtfire. They use the same concept, but the movie is very different. If you liked or didn't like Mrs. Doubtfire, still watch this. The editing was the only problem as it took away... Full review
The Hindi remake of Mrs Doubtfire starring and directed by Kamal Hassan is a somewhat shoddy version, and not as good as expected.Kamal Hassan clearly struggles with Hindi dialogs, even after all these years, and cannot handle even one scene... Full review

I LOVED this movie! I have just recently discovered Bollywood films and this one was on TV recently. It was much funnier than Mrs. Doubtfire with less goofiness and none of that hit-you-over-the head type of audience pandering. Even as... Full review

I first caught this at the Eros Cinema in Bombay. Even without English subtitles this non-Hindi speaker thoroughly enjoyed it. Recently I found this on DVD with the subtitle option and liked it all the more. Much funnier than the... Full review

from the beginning i knew this was going to be a complete copy of hollywood's Ms Doubtfire. Kamal and Tabu get a divorce, Tabu takes custody of the daughter but Kamal wants to be with her aswell. So he diguises as an auntie in amrish's home. There he can be with his daughter and be with Tabu. Through lots of confusion and old men liking the auntie, wanting to marry her, Tabu begins to miss her husband, kamal kills off the auntie to be with her.

The first half hour and the last half hour are the highlights of the movie, solely due to digital graphics.....They make up for the lack of a story.....Kamal likes to experiment (remember Chachi 420).....Remaining songs are pretty ordinary.....ending in India with a heavy dose of Hindu mythology, the film has a strong Southern flavour..... ...

Apun ka Choice
The second half of the movie is especially very fast and enjoyable. Kamal Haasan's direction is fantastic. He handles every scene with precision and the fine tuning it takes to become a wonderful director. Even Paresh Rawal gives his best. ... Full Review

Chachi 420 is very funny film. I laughed the whole way through. Kamal Hassan has directed a really good movie and should direct even more films and his acting was superb! Tabu proved yet again what a great actress she is. The storyline is the same as the original Hollywood version and Chachi 420 is slightly better than Mrs Doubtfire! For people who love comedy they have got to see this film! It deserves a 9.5/10!
