6 Colorful Characters From Hrishikesh Mukherjee Films, Film Companion
“Main sirf mama nahin, tumhara dost bhi hu,” says Professor Gupta to nephew Navin as he consoles him. Navin is heartbroken because Kusum (Jaya Bachchan), the girl he wants to marry, confesses that she loves not him, but the film star Dharmendra. Gupta, played by Utpal Dutt, is a Professor of Experimental Psychology and a self-proclaimed member of the ‘Bachelor’s club. He wisely tells his nephew, ‘Yeh pyaar nahi, infatuation hain’. He even gives Dharmendra, who plays himself in the movie, a quick psychology lesson on stardom. He’s the understanding relative we all wish we had. Although Dutt got more attention for his role in Mukherjee’s other classic comedy Gol Maal, don’t miss his turn as the lovable uncle in this film. The image of him playing a game of ‘Statue’ with youngsters will stay with you long after the credits roll.
