School for Scoundrels is a 1960 British comedy film inspired by the “Gamesmanship” series of books by Stephen Potter. Henry Palfrey (Ian Carmichael) is a failure in sport and love, and the easy victim of conmen and employees alike. He enrolls at the “School of Lifemanship” in Yeovil, run by Dr. Potter (Alastair Sim), who teaches him how to win in life and get the better of his rival (Terry-Thomas). Chhoti Si Baat has copied almost all scenes from the movie. A few scenes/songs are added and some changes are made like tennis replaced by table tennis or car replaced by bike.
