R.K. Raju, a private investigator is assigned the task of locating the missing daughter of a wealthy Hindu couple. His investigation take him to different locales, and he comes across Miss Mary, the girl closely resembling the one he is looking for. He asks her to accompany him, in the guise of teaching his girlfriend some music, to which she agrees. On the way there, they meet with Arun, who also agrees to accompany them as Miss Mary's husband. Once there Miss Mary is informed that she is the daughter of the Hindu couple, and she strongly denies this, stating that she is born a Christian, lived with a Christina Priest all her life, and has no knowledge of being a Hindu. Then a stolen locket of Devi Maa Laxmi is located, and the suspect, prima facie, is Mary and a gentleman, who claims to be her bethrothed. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

the story line is wrong
28 May 2013 | by (Goa) – See all my reviews

The movie is my favorite one amongst Meena Kumari movies. But the storyline given here is wrong. The story is like this.. there are unemployed BA passed Gemini Ganeshan and Meena Kumari, as their employer gets transferred. he is a teacher and she is a music teacher. Then he finds an wanted advertisement for a married BA pass couple as school teachers. He proposes her to act as his wife and apply for the post. first she refuses but then as the Creditor of her father presses for her hand in marriage in lieu of refund of loan, she accepts his proposal to act as his wife. They get the job. However, at the end of the movie they come to know that their employer had a daughter who was missing from childhood and that Meena Kumari is that daughter. She is been raised by a Christian couple as their own daughter and had saved the locket which was in her neck when she was lost. Its a very good movie from acting and direction point of view and good comedy also.. but the best is the music and the songs.
