Shanker and Rita's marriage is finalized by their elders in their childhoods, however, after growing up, Shanker loves Shobna. Shanker is told to marry Rita instead, and he does so. The marriage is rocky as Rita does not pay attention to her husband and son. Then Shobna re-enters their life. Memorable songs too: "Ilfizaye ishq me hum sari raat jaghe, allah jaane kya hoga aage, oh mollah jaane kya hoga aage..."; "Ye hariyali aur ye raasta, ein rahon par tera mera jivan bar ka vasta..."; "Bol meri taqdeer me kya hai mere humsafar ab to bata jivan ke do pehlu hain, hariyali aur raasta..."; "Kho gaya hai mera pyar, dhundta hoon main mera pyar..."; "Teri yaad dil se bhulane chala hoon, ke khud apni hasti mitane chala hoon..."; "Lakhon tare aasman me ek magar dhundhe na mila, dekke duniya ki diwali dil mera chup chap jala...".

The story of the movie is already written in the plot summary. So there is no need to repeat it. The film has a very good plot. Mala Sinha is excellent while Manoj Kumar is above average. From the other actors, Shashikala, I think, is quite successful in performing the role of a careless wife and mother. Manmohan Krishna also impressed me in the role of a trustee and a father. Overall the performance of all the cast was very good.
The music of the film is its main plus point. Each and every song made me lost. Especially, "Yeh Hariyali aur Yeh Rasta" was most wonderful. While "Lakhon Taare Aasmaan Mein" was most absorbing. Shanker-Jaikishan deserves appreciation. The direction is also good but it is not flawless. There are some scenes that were not needed. Especially the humour is not treated well. The climax also did not satisfy me. That is why I have given the movie 8 out of 10.
Overall a treat to watch but if you want to enjoy it, enjoy it with full concentration and peace of mind. Recommended for music lovers, fans of Mala Sinha and if you want some taste of 60's.
