Good Remake
14 December 2005 | by (Kuwait, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

This is the Hindi version of "Irma La Douce" & it is not one of those bad remakes.

"Manoranjan" is a funny musical with good performances.

However, the movie is finally released on DVD by Shemaroo & selling like hot cakes.

Do not miss it if you are a Zeenat Aman fan, & check out the actress's' performance in her the early days of her career.

Sanjeev Kumar gives one of his funniest performances.

To support, there is Shammi Kapoor, Faryal & others.

Manoranjan is a total entertainer.
