One of Shammi Kapoors best
12 January 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies of the 60's decade. Right from direction to camera work to art direction it excels in a way even the best movies of present year don't. And I haven't even talked about its music! Shanker-jaikishen produces magic with Lata mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhosle singing Aye Gulbadan, Main Chali and Khuli Palak mein. The Director, Lekh Tandon, works on a script familiar to audiences even in the 60's, but manages to build in sub-plots, memorable songs, enough melodrama from Lalita pawar and extract superb acting from Mr.Kapoor to make us sit through enjoyable two and a half hours of cinema. Shammi Kapoor dances,fights and emotes his heart out as the old professor and the young unemployed heartthrob. The very first melodrama king is a natural at over the top acting. You will just love watching him at the way he eases through his roles with the spunk and energy. Don't miss this movie from Bollywood's most melodic and sparkling era.
