Bawarchi is a 1972 Indian film directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee starring Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Badhuri with Asrani, A.K. Hangal, Usha Kiran and Durga Khote in supporting roles.
In Mukherjee's classic style, the film contains no violence or obscenities, and focuses on spreading family values and morals through clean comedy.
The movie is inspired by the Bengali film Galpa Holeo Satyi (1966) by Tapan Sinha. The film was remade in Tamil as Samayalkaaran with M. K. Muthu. It was remade twice in Kannada - first as Sakala Kala Vallabha starring Shashikumar and second as #73, Shaanthi Nivaasa with Sudeep. It served as a great inspiration for the 1997 Hindi film Hero No. 1.
