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)

Juglee = Comedy + Best Songs ...
20 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Junglee Was Directed By Subodh Mukherjee ...The Same Director Who Had Directed Munimji,Paying Guest & Love Marriage ...With Dev Anand In Lead...All Were Successful Movies...So Better Was Expected...The Writer Is Again Subodh...The Script Is Very Attractive ...Screenplay Is Better..The Story Revolves Around A Rich Dictator & A Poor Girl..How They Fall For Each Other & Consequences ...The Plot Is Similar To King Uncle Which Was Made In Early 90's With Jackie Shroff & Shah Rukh Khan.

Dev Anand Was In But Due To Some Issues ...He Was Replaced With Shammi Kapoor...And Everyone Knows How Shammi Kapoor Was In The Movie No Explanation Needed ...He Was Outstanding...Especially The Comic Scenes...It Was Saira Banu Debut Movie But Her Acting Was Compliment To Shammi Kapoor... Lalita Pawar Who Use To Be Mother In Most Of The Movies In Those Days...Was A Strict Mother..With Discipline & Set Of Rules...Shashikala Was Fine...

Music Of The Movie Is The Strongest Part Of The Movie ...Music Was Given By The Very Best Shankar Jaikishan...Every Song Is A Masterpiece ...The Numbers Like Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujhpar By Rafi, Karoon Main Kya Suku Suku By Rafi With Shammi Kapoor With Helen Was A Treat ...And The Most Unique Composition " Yahooo Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe" Was The Best Of The Lot...

There Was Nothing Wrong About The Movie...But The Plot Would Have Been Better...Overall A Excellent Entertainer ...Watch It If You Want To See The Best Of Shammi Kapoor On Screen.
