Good thriller during rising time of Indian Cinema
11 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Its always good to remember your old good days and watching these movies are perfectly a pleasurable experience. Late 50's and 60's is considered as the golden time for Indian Cinema and this movie proves the statement. It was one of classic suspense thriller of that time, with star cast like Wahida Rahman and Guru Datt sahab. The story is tightly written and basically revolves around a murder. Beautiful mix of romance between Wahida and Guruji and humor part added by Johny Walker makes it a perfect one to watch. Gurudatt Sahib is playing a lawyer who is in love with Wahida ji and fighting a case of murder for her, when she is charged with it. The way story unwraps layer by layer is really a lesson to learn. The movie is better than most of modern time thrillers.
