Rare Events In A Indian Movie...
21 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bambai Ka Babu Was Directed By Raj Khosla Who Was Known For His Thriller Movies ...Before This, Successful Thrillers Like C.I.D & Kala Pani With Dev Anand In Lead Were Directed By Him...So Again It's A Thriller With Some Rare Events In The Movie..The Story Is Well Written By Rajinder Singh Bedi ..But It's Inspired By O Henry's "A Double Dyed Deciever"...Anyways The Thrilling Elements Are Good...Screenplay Is Very Interesting Keeps You Moving...

Dev Anand Looks Far Better In This Movie...He Is Amazing As Babu Or Kundan...His Fake Identity Gives Rise To A Incest Relationship ...With The Actress Suchitra Sen As Maya ...Suchitra Sen Performs Very Well...This Rare Combination Actually Works ...

Music Of The Movie Was Given By S.D Burman...With Few Good Numbers Like "Deewana Mastana Hua Dil" By Rafi & Asha "Saathi Na Koi Manzil" By Rafi & "Chal Ri Sajni Ab Kya Soche" By Mukesh...

Overall A Good Thriller ...Must Watch For Dev Anand Fan ...If You Want To See Something Different Than Do Watch ...Similar Plot To Zameer Starring Amitabh & Saira Banu...Treatment & Climax Is Very Different & Comparatively Better...
