Goofs

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 »

Jewel Thief 1967
25 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Great adaption by Vijay Anand from Alfred Hitchcocks North By Northwest..Dev replaces Cary Grant in the looks department & besides the look alike theory nothing else & thats where the similarity ends..Knowing Vijay Anands perfection am shocked that he has shown Dev's mother as a Widow(1st scene where Dev sneaks into his own home & gives the pearl neckless) white saree no sindur etc... Wonder if anyone has noticed that at all.. Technically brilliant as even in the song Yeh dil na hota bechara, sound of Tanuja Revving the car into motion with the music on captured superbly which for 1967 i must say must have been quite a task.Brilliat costumes,amazing camera positions & a lot of that has flown intoi another vijay anand classic Johny Mera Naam..

Jewel Thief is quite a bold title considering the times & the cap worn by Devsaab still haunts the posters where they were painted!!

Vijay Anand

That man from Juhu...

An absolute fan
