Amazing
4 October 2012 | by (Ahmedabad) – See all my reviews

Like any other gem of Hrishikesh Mukherjee this movie is also a gem and a big one at that.

The simplicity which was shown in Hrishikesh Mukherjee's movie had vanished now. He never used vulgarity or double meaning dialogs to make people laugh.

The situations were realistic and anyone could associate with the story plot.

The characters were also normal and not larger than life heroes and there was always some moral associated with the story.

This time while watching it for 10th time i noticed something really funny, The background music of the scene where Utpal Dutt imagines about Swaroop Sampat offering him a paan became a song almost 20 years later as "Tanhai Tanhai" in the movie "Koyla".

Miss you so much Hrishi Da... thank you so much for all these gems.
