Less known good film of Young Amitabh
21 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bandhe Haath a 1973 film from OP Ralhan's stables is a surprisingly well told action thriller in the Masala genre of Double acting heroes, Crime and retribution and some sizzling dance numbers by a buxom Mumtaz.

Amitabh plays Shyamau 'chor' who sees the end of his mentor-god father Madan Puri and wants to turn a new leaf as he has met a lovely stage dancer who he has fallen in love with. His drama of acting like Deepak a writer to escape from Police turns into a hide and seek game as he dons the dead author deepak's role in real life after the latter breathes his last in front of him. But everything is not hunky dory in his new life as shyamu's past always keeps haunting Deepak with the help of a nosy cop, Ajit, Deepak's ex- girl friend Kumud chuggani who wants to marry him and an anguti ( ring) belonging to her father now in Deepak's possession, RD's numbers are not red hot unusually except for Kishore KIumar's haunting title song. Mumtaz looks pretty and dances away to glory. This is well shot, screen play quite taut except for the irritating essentials of comedy by OP Ralhan-Tuntun and Asit Sen trio.
