As days progress, one keenly awaits the release of two comedies, both of which have physically challenged characters as the prime protagonists. Both 'Pyaare Mohan' (Viveik Oberoi, Fardeen Khan, Esha Deol, Amrita Rao) and 'Tom Dick Harry' (Dino Morea, Jimmy Shergill, Anuj Sawhney, Celina Jaitley) are set on the same pretext.

But are you aware that this is not the first time that a movie like this has been made in Bollywood? Around a decade back, a movie called 'Hum Hain Kamaal Ke' [1993] was released that starred Kader Khan as a deaf man and Anupam Kher as blind.

Though the movie had Sujoy Mukherjee and Sheeba as a lead pair who were in love with each other, the entire promotion of the movie and its overall treatment revolved around Kader Khan and Anupam Kher.

Not surprisingly the comedy was a success.
