This film had stars like: Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Pran, Prem Chopra,
Manmohan, Ajit, etc.
The plot: Ashok Roy (Dharmendra) has every material wealth but has never known the love of parents. So with a special place in his heart for orphans, he together with his friend Mahesh (Mehmood) run an orphanage called Parvati Mandir. His first meeting with Seema (Hema Malini), the niece of the Inspector General of Police fails to impress, but when he generously signs a cheque of Rs 3 lakhs in aid of the Defence Forces, she begins to see him in a whole new light. The acquaintance blossoms into love, arousing the rage of Ramesh (Prem Chopra), Seema's now out-of-favor fiancée. Ramesh's jealousy drives him to seek the help of Ajit, the leader of a gang of smugglers, in whose hands Ramesh is a mere puppet because Ajit knows his terrible secret ***spoiler*** that Ramesh is not actually the grandson of Rai Bahadur Jwala Prasad.
From here, the story takes exciting twists and turns. Ramesh and his henchmen try to kill Ashok at Seema's dance show. They fail but succeed in abducting Seema. Meanwhile, Professor Choudhry (Pran) discovers that Ashok is his long lost son and the real grandson of Rai Bahadur Jwala Prasad. But before he can claim his beloved son as his own, another new secret seals his lips. Ashok has a secret life - as the notorious night robber Jugnu, Why does Ashok lead a double life? Does he save his beloved Seema and ever be united with his family?
The film is just excellent. From Acting to Direction.
Just watch it. It is watch worth. All the villain are excellent (Ajit, Prem Chopra, Manmohan) Just don't miss it. **** and a half
The year 1973 turned out to be one of the most remarkable years in Dharmendra's cinematic history.He proved that he had greater efficiency,electrifying charisma and a more effective star-power than the then fading superstar Rajesh Khanna by knocking him out from the number one spot.He became the hottest star at the box-office from then on delivering hits after hits that also included Yaadon ki Baarat,Kahani kismat ki and loafer.In fact out of the top ten hits for that year,six of Dharmendra's films were present.Jugnu was the second most successful film of the year after bobby earning super-duper hit status.it was extremely successful at the box office running for 50 consecutive weeks.Jugnu became one of the most thrilling entertainers of its time.Dharmendra and Hema Malini's chemistry was tagged the Awesome-twosome.This is one of few films in which almost all the songs were marvellous. Who would forget Chote Chote (performed beautifully by Dharmendra Dil Gaya Chamka and many more.you really need to see this movie, dharam is indeed a one-man treat.he gave an outstanding performance.The climax where dharmendra returns from prison and meets hema singing the same Chote Chote song to the children is indeed overwhelming.i loved when they hugged and pran looks on.due credit must also be given to the director,Pramod for treating the audience to a spectacular billing.Watch out for dharmendra's comedy scenes in typical punjabi dialect, Truly Fantastic.He once again highlighted is unrivalled versatility.Ajit and Prem Chopra are convincing as villains.Mehmood rocks all the way.Hema is pure class.A true classic of the 70's.
