Loved the movie! Excellent soundtrack. The acting is not as overly dramatic
as in many other Indian films I've seen and thus is very enjoyable.
Curiously, some of the western music brought back memories of Keith Moon & the Who! There was even an Abba track in the movie!! Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhonsle's singing is awesome. The story/acting/music does a nice job with pulling the emotional strings. Did I mention I loved this movie?!
Nassir hussain does it again with lots of massala in a similar vein to his previous film yaadon ki baraat. Lots of exciting action and a soundtrack to die for. RD burman comes out tops once again and this film features my all time favourites "chand mera dil" & "kya huwaa mera vada" A truly entertaining film full of pure undiluted bollywood!

Nasir Hussain after blockbuster YAADON KI BARAAT(1973) returned with
another musical blockbuster which starred Rishi Kapoor alongwith his
nephew Tariq Khan alongwith a newcomer Kaajal Kiran. The film also
brought back RD BURMAN whose music in YKB was a superhit. The film's
plot isn't it's asset, but it's well handled. It revolves around Rishi
who is in search of his inherited diamonds, the film also has a long
lost lovers theme wherein Tariq and Kaajal play childhood lovers. The
film has all the masala ingredients required to be a hit, also it has a
cameo of Zeenat Aman(even background music of YKB). The film is decent
and does entertain no doubt, though it's lengthy yet it works
Direction is good Music is a big asset, RD Burman was a force to reckon with. The film has several songs people still recall. Bachna Ae Haseeno by Kishore became an anthem, it even was remixed recently and picturised on Ranbhir Kapoor(ironically the film had the song title as well). Humko To Yaara(Kishore,Asha)also was a hit, while Kya Hua by Rafi created a history and gave Rafi the national award, while the medley songs are too good as well, Chand Mera Dil(Rafi), Tum Kya Jaano(RD Burman), Aa Dil Kya and Mil Gaya(Kishore,Asha) all used in the medley became instant hits, while the title track, the only Rafi song used on Rishi in the film was a superhit too, Yeh Ladka too became famous.
Amongst performances Rishi Kapoor is superb in his role like always, though he is sort of a parallel role in the film, with the centerstage being on Tariq yet he leaves a mark Tariq doesn't impress much and his career never took off too after this hit. Kaajal Kiran too is okay for her debut but couldn't make it big Amongst rest Om Shivpuri is good, Kamal Kapoor is as usual, Amjad Khan is terrific as the villain, Zeenat Aman has a cameo and is okay,Ajit too has a cameo and is as usual, rest are okay
