Storyline

A woman named Ruby is killed and her body is thrown off of the third floor of a building (4th floor in North America). The police are called in to investigate, and they are assisted by Anil, who was a friend of Ruby. The prime suspect in Anil's eye is Ramesh, who has been lying about his alibi, and also about his relationship with Ruby. But the police have a clue - a button from an overcoat, a button that is worth Rs.250, and it is more than likely that this coat belongs to the killer, who is very wealthy.

Trivia

This film originally had Dev Anand in the leading role, but following a spat between him and producer Nasir Hussain, he walked out of the film. When Shammi Kapoor was approached for the role, he told Nasir Hussain he would work in the film only if Dev Anand tells him personally he is not working in the film out of his own will, and that he is fine with him doing the film. That is what happened. See more »

Songs, romance, action and drama-what more can you ask for??
15 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film a few years ago and since then I must have seen it at least 20 times. First and foremost, the songs are excellent. I could listen to every single one again and again, especially O Haseena Zulfon Wali. Mohd Rafi truly is the greatest Indian playback singer to date. Asha Bhosle provides excellent support, particularly in the O Mera Sona Re song. Secondly, both the acting of Shammi Kapoor and Asha Parekh is great, both of them can pull off the comedy and the seriousness. Thirdly the plot of the movie is quite good too, with enough suspense to keep you hooked until the very end. This movie has been credited as the first murder mystery in Indian cinema and although at times its very clichéd and a little unbelievable, it still holds your attention.

All in all a typical 1960's movie but with that added masala that is bollywood!!
