Uncle Bun is a 1991 Malayalam film directed by Bhadran and starring Mohanlal in the title role. It was based on the 1989 American film Uncle Buck. Special costumes for Mohanlal was designed by art director Sabu Cyril.


Charlie Chacko, an overweight man who is struggling with the death of his first love, is forced to take care of his brother's three children and then falls in love with Geetha Krishnan.


Box office[edit]

The film was released along with Mammootty' s Anaswaram, while Mohanlal had another release Kilukkam directed by Priyadarshan. While Kilukkam became a blockbuster and highest grosser of Malayalam film industry, Anaswaram flopped. Uncle Bun couldn't perform as expected eventhough its technical aspect was appreciated; finally it settled as an average earner, but still completed 100 days in some centres.[1]


The songs were composed by maestro Raveendran and lyrics were penned by Pazhavila Rameshan.
