Storyline

Young and attractive Sarita Choudhary lives a wealthy lifestyle with her widowed dad, Jagatnarayan in a palatial house with her aunt, Rukmani; cousin, Lalli, and a maid-servant, Manorama Lal. Her dad recruits a tutor, Arun, to teach her essay-writing, and both Arun and Sarita end up falling in love with each other, especially when Sarita finds out that he is really a famous poet by the name of 'Rahee'. But her aunt would like to see her married to her nephew, Ramu alias Romeo, and she has Jagatnarayan recruit him to teach Sarita music. Jagatnarayan himself would like Sarita to get married to the son of a wealthy man, Moti Lal, and openly rejects any alliance with Arun, who comes from a poor family. Watch what happens when Moti Lal gets an anonymous letter informing him that Sarita is not the real daughter of Jagatnarayan, and that her parentage. religion, and caste are unknown.

a good movie
4 June 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good one starring Nazir,Sunil Dutt,Asha Parekh and Nirupa Roy.The movie on the whole belongs to Nirupa Roy who gives a wonderful performance as a mother who leaves her daughter to a rich man's doorstep and meanwhile asks him for employment which she gets.The girl grows and thinks of her as her maid and she lives with this fact all along.Sunil Dutt gives a bravo performance as a poor music teacher who teaches Asha Parekh and consequently falls in love with her.Asha Parekh also gives a decent performance and so does Nazir.I would rate this movie as 8 out of 10 since it has a good story with good performances and songs like "Itna Na Mujhse Tu Pyar Badha".
