Storyline

Lucknow-based impoverished advocate, Rajkumar Saxena, complains to his landlord about the deplorable condition of his apartment but is instead told by the latter's daughter, Roop, to pay his outstanding rent for over 6 months or face legal action. 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. Before he could attend, he is asked to represent a courtesan client, Mohini, who is facing eviction by her landlord. He finds her resemblance to Roop quite unusual and mentions this during their dinner. This news apparently shocks Harnam, who gets hospitalized and subsequently passes away. Mohini, who is injured in an accident, retains him to sue Roop as she claims to be her sister, but the latter decides to let Mohini move in with her and share the estate. The latter's satisfaction will turn to bitterness ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not very good
13 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Raj Kapoor and Nargis once again play the lead roles in the film. The chemistry, as usual, between them is excellent. Nargis has a double role in the film which forms the basis of the film. But somehow the film lacks what it takes to become entertaining. The film, especially, in the first part moves slowly. Although the second part catches up and there are really some intense moments. The film also lacks good songs(something, which is odd because Raj Kapoor's films usually had top class songs). The film can be considered a one time watch, although, if you are not used to old movies, this could become become boring.
