Two dream girls are better than one!
3 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The year is 1980 and so Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini are past their youth but they play the leads in a commendable effort which boasts of a good screenplay , interesting plot and above average music .Rajesh a naughty Medical student is now reformed sensible doctor and has to forget the tragedy of losing his reformer, the heroine Hema Malini. She has been killed by Danny as she was an eyewitness to a murder committed by him. Rajesh goes away to a remote village where he meets a look-alike sister of Hema, his first love. Interesting plot where Rajesh suppresses the truth of the elder daughter's death and slowly falls in love with the younger. When the truth of death is revealed, the younger one takes a very important step to save her mother and carve a new life. Rajesh has to come face to face with Danny as a Doctor to treat him as a patient again.Very emotional melodrama and the kind made to order for Rajesh Khanna and Hema. Melodious songs - Mere hosh lelo and Rang bhare mausam se by Kishoreda and Lata linger in the mind. Certainly worth a dekho.
