Storyline

In the background of the rise of the International Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s, is a Montreal-based family of the Jaiswals, consisting of mom, dad, son, Prashant, and daughter, Jasbir. Due to irreconciable differences between Mr and Mrs Jaiswal, they separate, leaving Jasbir with dad, and Prashant with his mom. Eventually Prashant and his mom travel to India, leaving father and daughter behind in Montreal. Mr. Jaiswal re-marries, and brings his new wife to live in his home. Years later, Prashant has grown up to be a pilot. He has received a letter from his dad that Jasbir, who had rebelled and left home, is now located in Kathmandu, Nepal, with a group of hippies. Prashant undertakes to find his sister and hopefully get her back to the family. When Prashant lands in Kathmandu he does not find Jasbir, but instead finds Janice, who is indeed his sister with a new name. Janice has no recollection of her childhood, and is always in the company of fellow-hippies. Prashant now needs ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Local color and degenerate hippies
25 May 2008 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This is the first complete Dev Anand film I've watched, and I hope it is not one of his better ones, because it didn't particularly impress me. (I am still looking forward to seeing Jewel Thief and Guide.) He is obviously a good looking guy with a jaunty style, a recognized giant in the industry, but he just doesn't do it for me. The story is not great, nor did Dev's direction impress, including his direction of himself. However, the local color provided by the Nepalese location was interesting, and there is kitschy pleasure in the depiction of the evil dreg hippies. The fight scenes are unintentionally funny -- I can't imagine Dev kicking anyone's ass: he hits like a girl! We do, however, have to thank him for bringing the lovely Zeenat Aman into films. And the music is not bad.
