He approaches her father, Harnam Singh, who not only lets him live there for free, but also befriends him, and invites him to Roop's birthday party. Roop gets impressed when he sings there and invites him for dinner along with her father.

The latter's satisfaction will turn to bitterness ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Good Psychological Thriller
7 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Story Is Basically About Twin Sisters ..How They Are Separated ...How Their life Is Effected ...Life is Good For Someone At The Same Time Worse For Other..This Was The First Movie Where A Lead Was Cast In Dual Role...Nargis Is Out Standing With Both Her Characters...Specially With Mohinibai ...In Some Of The Scenes She Looks Scary With Her Facial Expressions...Raj Kapoor Is Fine ...Chemistry Between Them Is Marvelous As Always... Music Of The Movie Was Given By Roshan ...Few Songs Are Good By Lata & Talat ....Script Is Well Written ...Everything Is Fine ...

Overall A Good Thriller ...Watch It For Nargis ...Watch If You're Thriller Movie Fan ..Else Skip.
