Raghav brags that he can smell a rat or an impersonator automatically, and Dr. Parimal Tripathi decides to take him on - result: funny family slapstick comedy, with a dose of pure Hindi and Urdu thrown in, especially the dialogue delivery by Om Prakash, Dharmendra, and Amitabh Bachchan. Notable songs are :Sare ga ma, ma sa re ga ma...."; "Ab ke sajan sawan me, aag lagegi badan mein, ghata barshegi, magar tarsegi nazar, mil na sakenghe do mahn ek hi aagan mein..."; "Chupke chupke chal di purvaiya, basuri bajaike raas rachaye daiya re daiya, chupke...".

Viewing a solar eclipse with naked a eye causes damage to the eyes. During the February solar eclipse of 1980 the Indian government broadcast Chupke Chupke during the eclipse on India's state broadcaster Doordarshan to encourage people to stay inside and not venture out and look at the eclipse with the naked eye.

In contrast to his 'Anand' and 'Mili', Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 'Chupke Chupke' follows a more comedic track. 'Chupke Chupke' is about a recently-married professor of botany who pulls a prank to introduce himself to his brother-in-law. His wife agrees to the plan and, along with a few friends, they enjoy the trick as they successfully confuse both the brother-in-law and her sister and one prank leads to another, confusing everyone but the initiators, resulting in a series of comic events.
The humorous situations acted out by the main cast is hilarious. The first half of the film drags a little but the comic tracks make up for it. As the film proceeds, the tension builds and it just becomes funnier and more enjoyable. There are a few songs which are quite beautiful and amusing. I love the title track.
Mukherjee has extracted some fine performance from his cast. Dharmendra proves to be quite a competent comedic actor. Sharmila Tagore and Jaya Bhaduri have a wonderful presence and Amitabh Bachchan is hilarious, especially in the scenes with Bhaduri where he tries to refrain from teaching botany. Om Prakash and Asrani provide some of the most laugh-out-loud moments. Lili Chakravarty and Usha Kiran also contribute well.
'Chupke Chupke' is a hilarious comedy that falls on the lines of Mukherjee's 'Golmaal'. For me, the film gets better with repeated viewing.
