Storyline

Chandrashekhar (Shammi Kapoor) or Shekhar as he is called now, belongs to an aristrocratic family, who believe laughter is a sign of belonging to the lower class, and as a result laughter is not encouraged in the household, run by Shekhar's domineering mom (Lalita Pawar). In this household the only one who dares to laugh and enjoy life is Shekhar's sister Mala (Shashikala), who also dares to love Jeevan (Anoop Kumar). Things change when their mom finds out about Mala's indiscretions, and she asks Shekhar to take her away from their home, to distant and scenic Kashmir, for awhile. She also instructs Shekhar to arrange to get married to a girl from a princely family. When Shekhar escorts Mala out of town, and on reaching Kashmir, he meets up with beautiful Rajkumari (Saira Banoo), and after being stranded with her for a night during a snowstorm, he realizes what he has been missing, and becomes a care-free man in love. This change is welcomed by Mala, but not by his mother. To make ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Contrary to popular perception, the iconic yell "Yahoo!!" in the famous song from this movie was not rendered by Mohammad Rafi. Shammi Kapoor revealed in an interview it was writer Prayag Raj who happened to be in the studio, and gave that memorable exclamation. See more »

An excellent example of the Bollywood genre
5 April 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film possess all the qualities of the classic Bollywood film as it has developed since the 1950s. It has romantic love triumphing over social convention and the caste system; the stifling oppressive family with a dominant matriarch: the scheming, grasping enemy, seeking to thwart the lovers;the battle of good versus evil at the end, with good triumphant (of course).

In addition, the film has splendid musical scenes with lavish settings and dance routines at various points. Settings are suitably escapist, ranging from the lavish house of the rich family, to Kashmiri summer countryside, snow-covered slopes, and an isolated wooden hut in a raging storm. Certainly, there is no danger of urban or rural social reality entering this story.

The acting also shows some of the special qualities of Bollywood, with wildly exaggerated, stylised performances especially from the male and female leads. The editing and production values are clear, (jump cutting, rapid blurred pans, unrealistic acrobatic fights, etc) I highly recommend this film, quite an early example of a colour feature from Bollywood It is entertaining. and once the viewer becomes accustomed to the genre it is highly enjoyable.
