Such is the bond between Memdidi, Bahadur Singh and Sher Khan, three people who start off acrimoniously, but land up forming a special relation---a relation of love, trust, care and understanding. A sister gains two brothers who can do anything for her. Two brother gain a sister who is forever caring to them. When she chides them, it is for their own good, when she lovingly orders them around, they know that she has the right to do so. After all she is their beloved Memdidi, who is a bright light in their lives now.
A streak of rare concern surfaces in the two men and they realise that they are responsible for Memdidi. They become her protector and want her to have a worry-free stay at the locality. Every few hours they drop by to ask whether she is alright, whether she has taken her food and why on earth is she working overtime. Such a pleasing sight! But little do they know that Memdidi is toiling hard so that she can send the money to Rita, her ward who is studying in a posh institute in Shimla.
Suddenly, as a result of so much hardships (Memdidi spends most of her nights sewing and her morning making spices and pulses cookies for sale), the old woman falls ill and is rendered really weak. In such an infirm condition, her two well-wishers take very good care of her. But since she cannot work, she cannot send the monthly sum of Rs 300 to Rita. When Memdidi decides to write to Rita the truth, Bahadur and Sher Khan plot to hide the real truth from Rita so that her innocent heart if not broken. Instead they plan and dupe Dilip's father (played by Hari Shivdasani) so that he agrees to marry his son to Rita. What happend next is for you to see. Trust me, it's interesting and enthralling in some bits. Though the end comprises the usual melodrama, Memdidi is a film that you just should not miss.
The comedy in the film is situational and hence goes with the flow of the story. While Bahadur Singh has presence of mind and is witty, Sher Khan is somewhat goofy and a bit slow. And it is their altercations that will make you laugh. Every performance in the film in very good. All the characters play their part really well. David for instance makes you smile every time he talks and Jayant is hollering always but is all wax inside. Together these two men are gems and possess two golden hearts. They try to be all rough and tough inside, but little do they realise that their endearing face says it all. These are simple yet good people who cannot do anyone any harm. Even when they dupe, they do so so that in the end everyone is happy.
