A nice movie with quote familiar plot
30 March 2014 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

A good movie on a very familiar plot. We have been watching at least a couple of movies ever decade on the same story but this one has been created nicely. Dev Anand is good as Dilip. Meena Kumari looks cute & innocent and plays her part well. Ashok Kumar in a cameo is good too. Kishore Kumar leaves a mark with one of his early works. Koushalya as Nayantara looks struggling. Bipin Gupta is flawless. Randhir delivers a good performance. Khemchand Prakash's music is too good with at least one popular song 'Khali Pili Kahe Ko Bomb'. This light hearted comedy movie does not have over the top scenes and dialogues so you will like it.
