Someone has tried to murder Mr. Perfect and now the beleaguered Inspector Ghote must figure out who tried to do it. Set in Bombay, India, this rollicking crime drama centers on Ghote's search for the would-be killer. Mr. Perfect was knocked out with a candlestick in the home of the jovial Lala, his employer. As there was no sign that the assassin forced is way into the home, Ghote assumes the prime suspects must be Lala or one of his family. Unfortunately, the pressures from his other cases that include a ring of jewel smugglers and a bureaucrat's purloined piece of costume jewelry, prevent Ghote from giving his full attention to Perfect's assailant. That Ghote must also entertain the meddlesome Axel Svensson, a renowned Swedish crime scientist, does nothing to help matters. To make matters worse, Lala's clan belongs to the upper-caste, making it nearly impossible for him to get answers to his questions. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
