Mr. Kabaadi is a Hindi language comedy film, released in 2017, that stars Annu Kapoor, Rajveer Singh, and Om Puri in the lead roles. The movie is directed by Seema Kapoor and produced by Anup Jalota and Rakesh Gupta. The plot of the movie revolves around the life of a middle-aged kabaadi, or scrap dealer, named Jitu (Annu Kapoor) and his family. Jitu is a miserly person who is obsessed with accumulating wealth and is always on the lookout for discarded objects that can be sold to make a profit. He is married to Shanti (Sarika Singh), who is a loving and caring wife but is frustrated with Jitu's miserliness. They have two sons, Gattu (Rajveer Singh) and Pappu (Brijendra Kala), who are poles apart in their personalities.

Gattu is a soft-hearted person who is often bullied by his father for not being ambitious enough. On the other hand, Pappu is a shrewd person like his father and is always looking for ways to make a quick buck. The family is financially stable but is always looking for ways to add to their wealth, which leads to a number of hilarious situations.

One day, Jitu comes across a vintage car that he believes can fetch him a fortune. He buys the car, refurbishes it, and puts it up for sale. However, things take an unexpected turn when the original owner of the car, a wealthy business tycoon named Sethi (Om Puri), comes looking for it. Sethi had lost the car many years ago and had been searching for it ever since. He offers a hefty sum to Jitu to buy the car back, but Jitu refuses to sell it as he believes it to be worth much more.

The situation becomes complicated when Sethi's daughter, Sonal (Anantika Sahai), develops a liking for Gattu and starts frequenting Jitu's house. This infuriates Jitu, who sees it as a ploy by Sethi to buy his car back. However, things take a turn for the worse when Sethi dies suddenly, and his family members accuse Jitu of foul play. The rest of the movie revolves around how Jitu and his family members try to clear their name and prove their innocence.

One of the highlights of the movie is the performances of the lead actors. Annu Kapoor delivers a stellar performance as Jitu, perfectly capturing the mannerisms and mindset of a miserly kabaadi. Rajveer Singh is also impressive as Gattu, bringing out the emotional depth of his character. Om Puri, in one of his last roles before his death, shines as Sethi, delivering a nuanced performance as a wealthy businessman consumed by his desire for a cherished possession.

The movie's comedy is another major highlight, with director Seema Kapoor infusing the movie with a healthy dose of humor. The interactions between Jitu and his family members are particularly hilarious, with their constant bickering and playful banter adding a fun element to the film. The movie also touches upon some social themes, such as the difference between material wealth and true happiness.

In terms of technical aspects, the movie boasts of some impressive camera work, with the colorful and vibrant locales of Delhi adding to the visual appeal of the film. The music by Ali Ghani and Vishal Mishra is also noteworthy, with some catchy tunes and melodious tracks.

Overall, Mr. Kabaadi is a light-hearted comedy that is sure to entertain audiences with its humor and social commentary. The movie showcases the talents of some of the finest actors in the industry and is a testament to the Indian film industry's ability to produce quality entertainment.

Mr. Kabaadi is a 2017 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
