Another comedy of errors
7 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Before he made Bachchan blockbusters, Manmohan Desai tried good actors like Shammi Kapoor in BLUFF MASTER (1963) and Rajesh Khanna in SACHAA JHUTHA (1970)

This movie has Rajesh Khanna in a double role as a villager Bhola who meets a diamond thief double role of his named Ranjit in the city Ranjit promises to look after him and pay for his sister's wedding if he can impersonate him

Vinod Khanna is a CID Inspector and so is Mumtaz Both of them plan to lure the diamond thief Ranjit by making Mumtaz look like an African diamond heiress But Mumtaz falls in love with Bhola and so does Mumtaz

Rajesh Khanna played the innocent Bhola and menacing Ranjith with ease which is why he won the Filmfare Best Actor award Mumtaz is gorgeous but may have done better Vinod Khanna is good in a supporting role The rest of the cast fit the bill
