Who can forget the Tom & Jerry chase with everybody fighting for a dead body like a bunch of monkeys and that side-splitter Draupadi ‘Cheerharan’ Mahabharata scene
One of the most outrageously funny scenes in Hindi cinema, the Mahabharata play episode of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, where Duryodhana seems least interested in the Draupadi’s ‘Cheer Haran’ but Yudhishthir pushes him to do it!
It turns out to be a laughing-out-loud situation when everybody from Drupad to Akbar jump on the stage to take away the Draupadi (who in fact is actually a dressed up dead body, played to perfection by Satish Shah).
Directed by Kundan Shah, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is a story of two photographer friends – Vinod Chopra (Naseeruddin Shah) and Sudhir Mishra (Ravi Baswani) – who try to reveal the dark side of the real estate.
This dark comedy eventually achieved the cult status for satirical depiction of indifference in social strata. Though the movie was based on a serious subject, humor remains to be the essence of the movie.
All actors (though none of them were big stars at that time) including Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Shah, Bhakti Barve, Satish Kaushik, Ashok Banthia, Neena Gupta – delivered brilliant performances.
Watch the video and enjoy this classic scene.
