Don Muthuswami is Mithun Chakraborty's comeback film as lead role in commercial cinema. The movie is a very low budget affair and the sad part is that shows in the movie. The film is set in th 70s, and the story of situational comedy belongs very much to th 70s. Unfortunately this is not another Gol Maal, Rajnigandha or Chhoti Si Baat.
Muthu is made to promise by his dying father to mend his ways and thus he appoints a Hindi-Urdu teacher Jaikishan. The entire story is a one day affair when Muthu is supposed to be appointed the Chairman of a Chit-fund company (set up by Frauds). On this very day, Muthu understands what’s there in the heart of his close ones and also discovers new relatives and in laws.
The film is set in Muthu's house (except one song - dream sequence). The production values are decent, enough to bring the 70s Bombay without going spoofy. The story and screenplay is good with twists and turns every 15 minutes. The two songs are very average fare from Anu Malik.
Mithun fans will love the movie keeping in mind his flawless performance. Of the supporting cast, Hrishita as Muthu's daughter and Vishal Kotian as his bodyguard are the best.
The film may do well in the smaller centres keeping in mind Mithun's popularity and a clean comedy which one can enjoy with the family.
