Unique storyline - and the first Hindi movie of a famous director
An interesting movie ! The story revolves around a house which is let out by the house-owner ( David ) to a series of tenants - all of whom stay for a little while, let the viewers into their lives and then leave. The movie sports some big names - though they do not appear together. Suchitra Sen is part of a runaway couple who are the first tenants. When they leave, the next set includes Kishore Kumar, Nasir Hussain and Nirupa Roy. The final set of tenants involves Usha Kiran and Dilip Kumar. And thus, one can imagine the story to continue forever ....
Kishore Kumar sings a famous, lively song 'munna bada pyaara'. The movie also has a rare song sung by the famous actor Dilip Kumar.
All in all, an interesting story, well directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee who has made several great Hindi films like Anari, Asli Naqli, Anupama, Anuradha, Anand, Guddi, Golmaal, Bawarchi etc. Definitely worth seeing.
