Storyline

Vinay, an ordinary young man who finds himself constantly mistaken for a look-alike jewel thief named Amar. Vinay works with the police to impersonate Amar and crack his crime ring--but it seems that Amar has decided to impersonate Vinay, as well, and soon their true identities are thoroughly muddled.

Just after the song, "Yeh dil na hota bechara", Dev anand is standing beside Tanuja's car. The location is apparently an open place vegetation all around. When car turns to reverse and camera angle changes, the car (and Tanuja & Dev Anand) is in a street. See more »

Good production value. Excellent tunes.
24 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I don't remember if the Dev Anand's character was called Raju or not, but it could well have been, because he pulled off the familiar role of a gentleman thief with his usual style & elan. Cinematography, editing & screenplay were above average. The haunting tunes will endure for a long time to come.
