A woman cannot forget her first love is a total myth!
23 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

A female is deeply in love with a male. Female role played by Asha Parekh and male role – the role of first lover – Prem Chopra.

Prem is actually in love with sexy siren Bindu (had Bindu taken birth in the 1990's – she would have been the most sought after heroine in the Bollywood film industry – Sunny Leone could not have made even an entry!). But Prem was a good actor – so he duped Asha by his lovey-dovey talks and Asha was deeply-2 in love with Prem. So you also know folks…when a villainous male is in love and has managed to dupe a female to the extent that she readily runs away from home on her wedding day…..also means that she probably had 'done that' – yea – I am talking about the process of copulation ..fornication – whatever you may call!!

Anyway, Prem throws her out and now Asha had nowhere to go – she could obviously not go back home – her groom got the shock of his life (Rajesh Khanna) – when he came all ready to take home a pretty bride but had to go back empty handed!

She boards a train and heads for an unknown destination…train meets with an accident (look at her life…gosh! what an adventurous turning point) – her friend dies along with her husband leaving her child behind. Asha pretends to be that friend of hers and reaches her in-laws house (apparently the in-laws had never seen their daughter-in-law…like they had thrown out their son because he had married against their wishes…but child birth sort of changed their opinion about them – no no – no cell phone of Facebook at that time folks – that images were easily available).

Long story short – Asha meets Rajesh Khanna – OK – Rajesh had not seen her picture – like in the US, you have blind dates…in India, we have blind marriages! He had just gone to the house – mounted on a horse – only to know that the bride had run away – so he went back home – never bothered to look at her picture also!) Call it decree of fate – Rajesh gets drawn to the widow (Asha was pretending to be a widow remember)- and eventually they get married! Wow! Happy ending!

Conclusion – Bollywood tried to make the Indian females understand that they may sleep around with just anyone who catches their fancy – coz. eventually, they will get married to the Hero! The daft category of females are still trying the funda out…and causing misery to themselves as well as the society!!

So a woman can forget her 1st love after all - see Asha did forget all about Prem Chopra na....so chill!! (esp. for the dumb girls who cling to a single love affair all their life and live is sheer misery!)
