Storyline

Indian Air Force pilot Bhagat lives with his wife, Raksha, and a young son. While going to the bank one day, the family find that the bank is being held up. The bank-robbers panic at the arrival of the police, and fire randomly killing Raksha instantly. Bhagat witnesses this horrific spectacle and is unable to do anything to save his wife. The robbers were masked, but one of them had a tear in his shoe, and another was wearing a locket, very similar to the worn by his wife. Bhagat's inquiries take him to the Northern-most hilly regions of India, where he must confront the past, as well as seek out the elusive killers and bring them to justice, not knowing that in so doing he will be endangering the life of his son.

Jab Chhaye Mera Jadu....
13 August 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well this movie I remember more for its song "Jab Chhaye mera Jadu Koi bach na paye..." (No one is spared of my magical spell). In this movie Dev Anand is a pilot and Amzad Khan is a con man - during a snow storm the plane is made to land in playground of a school run by Nirupa Roy! Here Amzad Khan takes the whole school (with school childerens) as hostage. (By the way Nirupa Roy happens to be his mother)

Now it is up to the wits of Dev Anand to save the school and the town.

This movie has initial inspiration from several Airplane / Airport movies but soon focuses on the school background. Songs / Music in this movie are impressive. (And since I have seen this movie during my college days - both the consecutive shows we screened at college had "Jab Chhaye .." rewound several times.
