Storyline

Gauri lives in a small village in India with her crippled ex-army-man & freedom fighter dad, Laxmandas, and a younger brother, Gulab, and makes a living working as a laborer. One day she notices a male lurking around their house, this male subsequently introduces himself as Ranjeet, who has just arrived from Bombay. Ranjeet and Gauri become friends after Ranjeet treats a wound on Gauri's foot, and then both fall in love with each other. Ranjeet starts working for the Government which is in the process of building a dam, where Gauri also works. Ranjeet starts work as a laborer also, but is subsequently promoted as a crane operator. What Gauri and Laxmandas do not know is that Ranjeet is in this village for a reason - greed - for the suitcase of gold that he himself had buried in Gauri's front-yard - the very same gold that he was caught smuggling five years ago - and the very same gold that he had spent five years in prison for.

A fairly good entertainer with Indian industrial rejuvenation as its background.
1 August 1999 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Shakti Samanta's rare attempt in having a story with a village backdrop! Showed the uplifting of the villagers' lives with the construction of dams. Sunil Dutt did well, but Madhubala was gorgeous. Music by S. D. Burman was good, particularly the songs, "Janu janu ri kahe khanke hai tora kangna" by Geeta Dutt and Asha Bhosle and "Chand sa mukhda kyon sharmaya" by Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle being really good. "Yeh chanda roos ka na ye japan ka" and "O' mehnatkash insaan jaag utha" were other good numbers.
