Seeta is ill treated by her cruel aunt Kaushalya. Fed up with her atrocities, one day Seeta leaves the house and runs into Raka. Meanwhile, her look-alike, Geeta, is apprehended by the police and brought to Kaushalya. Geeta, unlike Seeta, is unafraid and soon assumes control of the house. But as fate could have it, Geeta's cover is blown and she is arrested for impersonation. Seeta, in the meantime, is unable to meet life's harsh demands, including dancing in the street, as was Geeta and Raka's profession. As Geeta is got rid off, Kaushalya locates Seeta and brings her back to her life of mute slavery, abuse, and confinement. Written by

Hema Malini's Comedy of Errors
2 January 2009 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I found 'Seeta Aur Geeta' to be a thoroughly enjoyable flick. One can expect lots of laughter from this comedy. Even though in terms of story, this isn't much different from other dual role comedies but it still is a charming film. Ramesh Sippy is a good director (even though I find 'Sholay' overrated) as he sticks to the main story. The beautiful Hema Malini plays the title roles and she brilliantly pulls it off. Seeta is the boring, pushover, damsel in distress sister and Geeta is the street smart, bold, charming and mischievous one. It is the Hema Malini who plays Geeta that stands out. She proves her capability as a comedian and is a fun treat to watch. Sanjeev Kumar is excellent as the doctor who falls in love with Geeta (this actor can hardly do wrong in my books). It is his scenes with Malini that I enjoyed most. Dharmendra tends to overact, particularly as the drunk, but otherwise he is alright. I love all the songs though 'Maine Sharab Pee Hai' is the least favourite. My favourite ones are the two duets sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. Overall, 'Seeta Aur Geeta' is a charming comedy of errors. A classic indeed.
