Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate (Raven pecks a Liar) is a 1998 Hindi comedy film directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee resembling old comedies like Chupke Chupke (1976). The movie stars Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Amrish Puri, Reema Lagoo, and Anupam Kher in the main cast. The film also featured Sajid Khan, Farah Khan's brother in a supporting role.

The movie was the last movie of the legend Hrishikesh Mukherjee.


Shankar(Anil Kapoor), an actor of sorts, loves Urmila(Juhi Chawla), but since Urmila is the daughter of a conservative and orthodox retired police officer Abhayankar (Amrish Puri), it'll take a lot for Shankar to win over the Abhayankar family. Shankar then begins to create a series of lies (hence the title, when he lies, the crow caws) in attempting to get the one he loves.



Music by Anand- Milind and Lyrics by Anand Bakshi. Playback singers who rendered their voices are Udit Narayan (for Anil Kapoor), Abhijeet (for Sajid Khan), Vinod Rathod (for Anupam Kher), Shaiamak Davar (for himself), Parvez and Alka Yagnik (for Juhi Chawla). Although the film did not work at the box-office, the music was appreciated. The soundtrack consists of 7 original songs.
