Storyline

Orphaned at a young age, Neetu Singh lives a wealthy lifestyle in Raigadh in a palace which is presided over by her aunt, Rani Maa, and Neetu's paternal uncle, Rajan Singh.

A few days later she is abducted by two men, who had initially claimed to be palace guards, and is rescued by a male named Raju Khan, a career thief and con-man, who was one of the slum dwellers in Juhu.

What Neetu does not know is that Prem has hired... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A comedy classic
19 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Maha Chor is a comedy entertainer. It is a movie with full of comedies which makes the kids and youngsters enjoy very much. The songs of the movie are very famous and good. The story of the movie is a very old one which makes boring for the true cinema lovers, Rajesh Khanna had played his Character in a great way.Prem Chopra is best as villain. Neetu Singh the heroine of the movie looks very beautiful.and also acted very well.It is a movie for people who love comedies. The song that takes place in the jail looks good and enjoyable. The climax of the movie is as usual which anybody can guess .Its a must to see for all the Rajesh Khanna fans. I give 7/10 for this movie
