Storyline

Kind-hearted yet naive Bajrang (Mehmood) drives a taxi (laila) and helps anyone he can. He is devoted to another kind-hearted gentleman and long-time bank employee by the name of Sadhuram (Om Prakash). Bajrang is attracted to a school-teacher, Vidya (Bharathi), whose brother is an artiste, Dina Nath (Kishore Kumar). One day a man claiming to be a child-hood friend of Sadhuram, named Sher Khan (Pran), enters their lives. His motive is to rob the bank where Sadhuram is employed and blame Sadhuram for this. He manipulates Sadhuram into accepting him, and moves in with him. He borrows a large sum of money from Sadhuram, and also manages to duplicate the bank's safe's key, and steals the money. The Bank Manager (Nasir Hussain) notifies the police of the robbery and Sadhuram becomes the prime suspect. In panic Sadhuram, who comes into possession of the money that Sher Khan has stolen, flees with the police on his tail. Sher Khan (alias dacoit Dilawar Khan) gets killed and his dead body ends...

A Film Carried by the comedians of 60s
26 December 2015 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Sadhu Aur Shaitaan" presents good versus evil with a defeat of evil for which the protagonist Om Prakash, a sincere employee of a bank, has to suffer a lot. The thing different in this movie is it's carried on the shoulders of the comedians and doesn't have any hero or heroine. It's hard to decide who is the main protagonist, Om Prakash or Mehmood. Besides, we have a string of other actors playing their parts, Pran, Kishore Kumar, Nasir Hussain, Mukri, with cameos from Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, and Dilip Kumar. You'll just imagine what sort of combination this would be if you're an avid viewer of 60s movies. But clearly the film belongs to Om Prakash from whom the film becomes gripping. Mehmood, Pran, and Kishore Kumar, although good, couldn't avoid overacting. The story is slight but still entertaining. If you can overlook the stretching of the movie towards the end, the film isn't disappointing but will entertain you.
