Storyline

The lives of Atmaram and his wife are turned upside down when they see their daughter, Mala's pictures in a magazine. They arrange for Mala's marriage with the son of Ramlal. Mala is opposed to marrying anyone who she has not met, and is at the same time thrilled that the two persons she trusted, one Sharma, and the other Verma had actually submitted her pictures to a magazine, and were now willing to sign her up for a Bollywood movie. Mala is not able to understand her parents' opposition on her way to fame, and runs away from home with a lot of money and hands this money to Sharma and Verma. Greed overtakes Sharma and Verma, leading to the death of Verma. Mala, who witnessed Sharma kill Verma, now is on the run for her life. She boards a bus from Bombay which bound for Goa. Sharma soon overtakes her, and has one of his armed men on the bus to kill her. And then arrives Mala's admirer Ravikumar, who not only protects Mala, but also accompanies her throughout the journey. Mala starts ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Bollywood Comedy at its BEST!
7 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you enjoy comedy, I mean REALLY enjoy comedy, this is the movie for you! There are so many comedians in this movie that it is very easy to lose count. And also, I believe this is superstar Amitabh Bachchan's very first movie. It is also one of Shatrughan Sinha's first movies. But the BEST stars are Mehmood and his gang of cut-ups. Even the names of the bus driver and the conductor when put together are a tongue-in-cheek reference to one of the biggest superstars of that era

  • Rajesh Khanna. Why don't people make real comedies like this


anymore??? My personal favorite scene is when the bus stops at a roadside snack stand and a hungry kid goes berserk when he sees a complete stranger eating some pakoras (fritters) that he suddenly decides he wants as well. The facial expressions of everyone involved had me in stitches long after the scene was over. You have to see this movie if you want to die laughing!!! Two thumbs, eight fingers, and ten toes up!!!
