Sharmaji Namkeen, Rishi Kapoor's last release, holds a special place in the hearts of his fans. The feel-good movie comes as a great ode to the actor and his contribution to the Hindi cinema industry, two years after his demise.
The film tells the story of Brij Gopal Sharma (Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal), who is trying to stay motivated after retirement. Sharma aspires to transform his passion for cooking into a career to deal with the post-retirement blues.

Sharmaji Namkeen is the midweek dopamine dose I didn’t know I needed. Both Rishi Kapoor and @SirPareshRawal are heartwarming to watch.— Yash Saboo (@YashSaboo7) March 30, 2022
The character BG Sharma reminded me of Satish Duggal from Do Dooni Chaar, another wholesome gem which deserves a rewatch this weekend 💯
