The story of deceit, romance and blackmail
7 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film was released in 1973

It revolves around three people Kailash (Dharmendra), Asha (Raakhee) and Jeevan (Shatrughan Sinha)

Dharmendra and his uncle have unlocked the secret of solar energy Shatrughan Sinha and his future father-in-law want it so they get Shatrughan's fiancée Raakhee married to Dharmendra to make things fair

The direction done by Vijay Anand is good Music by R.D. Burman is melodious like "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas"

The three performances done by the trio are brilliant Shatrughan Sinha made a different type of villain Raakhee was mesmerizing with her green eyes and played good with Dharmendra Though later she had better chemistry with Amitabh Bachchan in Trishul, Kabhi Kabhie and Kaala Phattar and later played his mother
