6 Colorful Characters From Hrishikesh Mukherjee Films, Film Companion
Affectionately referred to as Babbu by his squabbling family members, Vishwanath, played by Asrani, is the most colourful member in a family where everyone has a rather mundane existence. His flamboyant bright kurtas and silk scarves help him stand out against the dull attire worn by the others. Vishwanath is an assistant music composer who says his craft is “too technical” for others to understand. It turns out Vishwanath doesn’t know too much about technique either. A hard day’s work for him comprises buying cassettes of English songs, recording them and replacing the lyrics with Hindi ones. He’s cavalier about his thievery, calling it a “trade secret”.
