‘Hera Pheri’, which was released in 2000, is a comedy film. It was directed by Priyadarshan. It starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal. The movie is a remake of 1989 Malayalam film ‘Ramji Rao’, which was inspired by the 1971 TV movie ‘See the Man Run’. Over the years, the film has attained cult status.
The first installment of Hera Pheri revolves around two tenants, Raju and Shyam, and a landlord Baburao, who in desperate need of money, chances upon a ransom call via a cross connection.
The second installment ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ was released in 2006. It stars Bipasha Basu, Rimi Sen, Johnny Lever, and Rajpal Yadav. The central plot draws inspiration from the 1998 film ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’.
