Chhadmabeshi (lit.'Disguised') is a 1971 Bengali comedy film directed by Agradoot,[a] starring Uttam Kumar and Madhabi Mukherjee as leads,[2] based on the story Chhadobeshi by writer Upendranath Ganguly.[citation needed] The story revolves around a newly married professor, who plays a practical joke upon his brother-in-law by posing as his family driver.

The film was remade in Hindi in 1975 as Chupke Chupke starring Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, and Amitabh Bachchan[3][4][5] and in Kannada in 2004 as Joke Falls.
