Storyline

Ashok is a petty thief working under a notorious gangster named Sunder. When Ashok comes across a dead body of a watchman, he reports this matter to the police, much to the anger of some of Sunder's men. Ashok then meets Nimmo, and both fall in love with each other. Nimmo convinces Ashok to give up this life of crime, and begin anew. Ashok agrees, and then when he has not eaten for two or three days, he realizes that it is not that easy to be a honest man. And neither will his former associates let him live very long, nor will they trust their secrets with him as long as he is alive. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Good Movie Altogether
21 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

House No 44 Was Directed By M.K Burman & Produced By Dev Anand's Navketan Films...Story Is Good ...Written By Vishwamittar Adil...Screenplay Would Have Been Better...

Story Revolves Around A Thief Ashok Who Starts Working For Sunder A Notorious Gangster ...His Journey From A Thief To A Normal Person...How Love Changes Him...

Dev Anand As Ashok Gives A Promising Performance ...Kalpana Karthik Is Very Beautiful ...She Is Too Good In The Movie...K N Singh The Villain Is Fine.....Kumkum Is OK...

Music Was Composed By Navketan's Music Director S.D.Burman...It Had Classic Songs Like "Teri Duniya Mein Jeene Se" By Hemant Kumar, "Chup Hai Dharti Chup Hai Chand Sitare" Again by Hemant Kumar ...

Overall A Good Movie...Script Should Have Been Better ...Same With Screenplay...Good Movie...Must Watch For A Dev Anand Fan....
