A Great movie............

9/10
Author: jani-priyam

Mehmood was one of the best comedians we had during 60's and 70's....he attracted audience more than the lead actor...for example you can see Humjoli and you would be confused is Jeetendra really was lead star or it was Mehmood..All the lead actors of that time were envious and they made a clause in their contract that they wouldn't work in film if had Mehmood....This led to Mehmood's downfall....But a man like Mehmood who had already fought many problems in life like poverty,struggle didn't care about this....He went on to make his own films like Bombay to Goa....Kunwaara Baap...and this one (Saadhu Aur Shaitaan) Talking about the film....Mehmood plays a role of Taxi driver......whole film is conveyed with a taxi......what a film?????/excellent.....mind blowing comic timings By Mehmood and Kishore DA....don't miss this one.............

A Film Carried by the comedians of 60s

5/10
Author: Suman Shakya from Nepal
26 December 2015

"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.

Rating: 1 star out of 4
