Heroes come and go, but legends are forever. This phrase perfectly suits the journey of legendary actor late Rishi Kapoor. Sharmaji Namkeen is a treat for the audience to see Rishi Kapoor and his magic one last time on the screen.

Sharmaji Namkeen traces the post-retirement life of B.G. Sharma. He aspires to start something new as he doesn't want to conform to a life designed by society. Hereon, the audience walks with Sharmaji in his quest to follow his passion for cooking and attending kitty parties. In parallel, he continues his battle against the 'pre-set notions" and rejections of society and his son.

It is the first time in Hindi cinema that two actors have played one character. It's a risky move as it exposes two actors to juxtaposition and criticism. However, Rishi Kapoor is a treat for the eyes and his character seems tailor-made. Hats off to Paresh Rawal for stepping into the shoes and keeping Sharmaji alive in the audience's minds.

Suhail Nayyar warrants a special mention for his performance. It is not easy to stand out in front of brilliant actors like Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal. But, Nayyar is effortless. Other co-actors - Satish Kaushik, Isha Talwar, Sheeba Chaddha – have played their part well. Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor take us back to an era when romance was more about emotional chemistry. Their on-screen chemistry is adorable as always. Parmeet Sethi's presence lit up the screen.

Director Hitesh Bhatia has done complete justice to Rishi Kapoor and the film. He ensured to retain the simplicity and charm of the actor. The shift between Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal was smooth. The writing is crisp, honest, non-dramatic, and definitely not preachy! But above all, Sharmaji is 'entertaining'.

Hitesh pays a perfect homage to Rishi Kapoor in the end credits. A behind-the-scenes clip brings back Rishi Kapoor where he says, "Now, this can't be done better than this."
