Hungama is a Bollywood comedy film from 1971 that stars Kishore Kumar, Vinod Khanna, and Zeenat Aman in lead roles. The film is directed by Shankar Mukherjee and produced by S.N. Sippy. The story of Hungama revolves around a man named Anokhelal (Kishore Kumar), who is a small-time thief's sidekick. He finds himself constantly running from the police and ends up taking shelter in the house of a wealthy man named Dinanath (Om Prakash). Anokhelal tries to deceive Dinanath by posing as a long-lost relative, but his plan backfires when he realizes that he has mistakenly assumed the identity of a psychiatrist that was supposed to arrive at Dinanath's house the same day as Anokhelal.

The confusion continues when Dinanath's daughter Mala (Zeenat Aman) mistakes Anokhelal for the psychiatrist, and he decides to use this to his advantage to gain access to the expensive items in the house. However, things take an unexpected turn when Dinanath's granddaughter Mehmooda (Mehmood) also confuses Anokhelal for the psychiatrist and starts sharing her deepest secrets with him. Anokhelal, who has no knowledge of psychiatry, finds himself in a fix, but he decides to play along to keep up the charade.

In the meantime, another character named Deven (Vinod Khanna) enters the scene, claiming to be the real psychiatrist. Deven falls in love with Mala and is determined to expose Anokhelal's deception. However, he is constantly thwarted in his efforts by Anokhelal's quick thinking and lies. The film is filled with hilarious moments and witty dialogues as the characters try to outsmart each other.

The music of Hungama is composed by R.D. Burman and features memorable songs such as "Tum Jo Mil Gaye Ho," "Hum Tum Gumsum Raat Milan Ki," and "Hai Kuchh Aisi Ada Se." Kishore Kumar, who also stars in the film, has lent his voice to a few of these songs, and they have become popular classics over the years. The film's cinematography by K.H. Kapadia is also noteworthy, with some beautiful shots of the scenic location where the film is set.

Overall, Hungama is a light-hearted and entertaining film that showcases the talent of its cast and crew. It is one of the earlier films of Vinod Khanna and Zeenat Aman, who would go on to become prominent actors in the Indian film industry. Kishore Kumar, who was known for his comedic timing and versatile voice, delivers a hilarious performance as Anokhelal. The film's plot may seem simplistic, but the humor and the eccentric characters make it an enjoyable watch for anyone who loves classic Bollywood comedies.

In conclusion, Hungama is a must-watch film for fans of the comedy genre and those looking for some nostalgic entertainment. Its catchy music, witty dialogues, and charismatic cast make it a memorable addition to the Indian film industry's repertoire.
