Storyline

London-based Millionairess Epifania (Sophia Loren) is attracted to Dr. Kabir (MD from Delhi and PhD from Calcutta), who is more intent on treating patients. When she persists, he confides in her that he had made a commitment to his late widowed seamstress mother that he will wed any woman who will manage to survive on just Rs.500/-, for 90 days. She finds out that this sum is equivalent to just 35 shillings but readily accepts this challenge. She also informs him that her late father had also imposed a condition that she must wed a male who will turn £500 into £15000 within the same period. Epifania then finds employment with an Italian firm, ends up re-organizing, and turning up the firm's profits. At the end of 90 days, she goes to meet Kabir and discovers that he has not only given all the money away but also has no interest whatsoever in marrying her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

"A Hidden Treasure" Critique by Zach19, MD
26 October 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this film as a boy growing up in the 60s, and I love it today. In today's society in which sex is flaunted and perverted in the movies, it's nice to be able to take a trip back in time and see movies in which sex was depicted more as an "innuendo". Sophia Loren is one of the most beautiful women of all-time; and Peter Sellers was one of the funniest comics of all-time. Together they made a romantic comedy that could compete and surpass many of today's romantic comedies.
