Twenty years ago, after killing his brother, Sardar Rajpal flees from his hometown in Shillong and re-locates in the rural area of Assam along with his adopted daughter, Meena. He asks his wife, Kamla, to send their son, Shankar, so that he can employ him and get him married to Meena. Shankar arrives and he is welcomed by Sardar who employs him and introduces him to Meena. A few days another young man shows up at his door claiming that he is Kamla's son. A baffled Sardar also welcomes him, and puts both the young men under observation in order to find who the real Shankar is. The question remains why would anyone want to impersonate Shankar, and what will happen to Sardar himself after the Police catch up with him for killing his brother 20 years ago.

Tumsa Nahi Dekha Written & Directed By Nasir Hussain....After Writing For Movies Like Anarkali,Munimji & Paying Guest...This Was The First Time He Was Directing A Movie....

The Story Is Twenty Years Ago, After Killing His Brother, Sardar Rajpal Flees & Re-Locates In Assam Along With His Adopted Daughter Meena..... He Asks His Wife To Send Their Son, Shankar, So That He Can Employ Him.... Shankar Arrives... Sardar Employs Him... A few Days Later Another Young Man Shows Up At His Door Claiming To Be Shankar. A Baffled Sardar Welcomes Him & Puts Both The Young Men Under Observation In Order To Find Who Is The Real Shankar...Screenplay Is Fine...

Shammi Kapoor As Shankar....Does Very Well...His Comic Timing & Chemistry With Meena Is Awesome....Ameeta As Meena Is Gorgeous...She is Fine Throughout The Movie....B.M Vyas As Sardar Rajpal Is Well Written Character ...He Gives One Of The Better Performance....Pran As Sohan Is OK But Have Been Better....

Music Is Composed By O.P.Nayyar...Which Is The Best Part Of The Movie...All The Songs Did Well.... The Film's Original Lyricist was Sahir Who Wrote The Title Song But He Opted Out & Majrooh Sultanpuri Was In....."Tumsa Nahi Dekha" By Rafi..."Sir Par Topi" By Asha-Rafi & "Chhupne Wale Saamne Aa" By Rafi....Are Some Classic Compositions...

Overall A Good Movie...This Was The First Successful Movie For Shammi Kapoor...It Was A Good Attempt By The Writer To Direct...:)
