    Hera Pheri is one of the best comedies bollywood has ever produced. It is a classic and worth watching with entire family. Every once in a while comes a movie that makes you feel good about the world and yourself. You feel optimistic. Remembering it makes you smile and you do a little skip on the road.

    The film is about two unemployed youth who are struggling in the big bad world of Mumbai searching for a job. Shyam (Sunil Shetty) is looking forward to a job in a bank, in which his late father used to work. Raju (Akshay Kumar) too is struggling to manage with the complications of life. His mother is in an old age home who thinks that her son is a successful businessman from Calcutta. Now, as it happens in a masala film, both Shyam and Raju become tenants in Babu Rao Apte's (Paresh Rawal) house, a drunkard who has a kind heart.

    The film’s strength is Paresh Rawal’s brilliant performance. Akshay has done comedy earlier and has not disappointed in this film. But it’s Sunil Shetty who comes out on top with his mature performance. Comedy is not Tabu’s forte and there isn’t much scope for her in the movie. Om Puri has given a good performance.

    Priyadarshan's direction is good but the film suffers from poor script. Music of the film is a big let down. There is no song worth humming. Their picturisation is also poor

    Raju (Akshay Kumar) too is struggling to manage with the complications of life. His mother is in an old age home who thinks that her son is a successful businessman from Calcutta.

    Now, as it happens in a masala film, both Shyam and Raju become tenants in Babu Rao Apte's (Paresh Rawal) house, a drunkard who has a kind heart.

    Shyam has lot of debts to pay. He has to compete for the bank job with Anuradha Panikar (Tabu), whose father also met a similar fate. Both are at each other's throat, and not ready to give up, but Shyam decides to back out when he comes to know Anuradha’s problems.

    All in all, Priyadarshan´s Hera Pheri is a delight to watch for its performances, some songs and rib-ticking comedy
