a movie worth missing
10 March 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although it has been designated as a Blockbuster by in the list of films released in 1975, but apart from some songs, there is not much in the movie. The story becomes too superficial once Manojkumar changes his role of Sanyasi to an international smuggler to trap the villains Premnath, Prem Chopra etc who had kept his love Hema Malini and Mother Sulochana captive in the movie. Helen's dance was one of the worst, ever seen, as other than Asha Bhonsale's voice nothing else suits for Helen's dances. Pran's role in the movie reminds one of his role in the movie Upkar of 1967, but the songs given to him, sung by Manna Dey are no match with 'Kasme vade Pyaar wafa sab' of Upkar. Overall a film worth missing to be seen.
