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.

Bollywood at its best
25 April 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is probably Shammi Kapoor's best performances after JUNGLEE(1961

Its quiet different to see him in the role of a framed musician with an eye for the ladies He has like three bad girls who love him

A young woman fell in love for Shammi and committed suicide but the girls sister thinks her sister was seduced and jilted which is why she wants revenge

The movie is a Hithcock-influenced romance with a small murder mystery thrown in

The movie has fantastic song stand outs like O Hasina Zulfonwali Jaane Jahan and Tumne Mujhe Dekha

Shammi Kapoor stands out in his role Asha Parekh is the spunky revenge seeking sister Premnath is convincing Helen's role is small but effective Prem Chopra is average Rashid Khan is scary with his stare the rest are okay
