Storyline

Jailor Manmohan Krishan is responsible for looking after convicts undergoing sentences of rigorous imprisonment. He has a young, beautiful and captive daughter named Shalini. Shalini is a poet, one day while reciting her poetry, she meets with a young man, who introduces himself as Amar, who also happens to be a poet himself. The two of them spend beautiful moments together and finds themselves attracted to each other. Shalini wants to find out why Amar is in jail. She is told in no uncertain terms that Amar is in jail for murder - for killing the brother of his former lover, Sapna. She also found out that this is not true and would strive to the best of her merit to get Amar release from jail because she is in love with him and would like to marry him.

Good Movie
15 February 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie Joshila starts off with an excellent song sung by Kishore Kumnar but loses its plot early on ......... after about 35-40 mins .... it comes back on track ... this time in style . You get to know that its the typical Dev Anand film which is not let u gonna stand up from the seat But during the middle of the movie , the whole superb story seems to be stretched .... the movie could have easily been a super hit if the songs in between the film could have been improvised , the dialogues which were like ( Tera khoon pee jaaoonga ) n the climax which ruined this master - piecs which could have easily attained 10/10 n is getting 7/10 .....

Watch it only if u r a Dev Anand fan or a Yash Chopra fan ...... or otherwise watch his movie Chhupa Rustam ( or Warrant or Bullet or Ishq Ishq Ishq )which also stars him n Hema Malini
