Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiyaa (Hindi: आमदनी अठन्नी खर्चा रुपइया; lit. "Income is fifty paisa and expenses are a whole rupee" [in other words, expenses are greater than wages]) is a 2001 Bollywood comedy-drama film directed by K. Raghavendra Rao starring Govinda, Juhi Chawla and Tabu. This was the remake of the Telugu film Kshemamga Velli Labhamga Randi which itself was based on Tamil film Viralukketha Veekkam directed by V. Sekhar. The film was an average grosser at box office.


This is a family story. Jhumri and her husband, Bhimsha, move into a new neighbourhood. Their immediate neighbours are three squabbling couples: Vijay and Anjali who are newly married; Appu Khote and Vimla, who are married and have four children; and Ravi and Meena, who are married and have a girl. Slowly the husbands are running out of money so they trick their wives and go out for a vacation. Meanwhile, their wives are struggling to pay their rents and decide to work even though their husbands told them not to. When the husbands come back, they kick their wives out of the house since they got jobs. The wives go to live with Jhumri and Bhimsha.

The husbands are struggling to cook and take care of their children and go out to bring a dancing girl home to cook and look after the children! One day, Meena's daughter Rani falls sick and both husband and wife try to get two lakh rupees to save her life. The wife earns money by working hard, while Ravi tries smuggling to get the money. The story has a happy ending with the families living peacefully after.
