Gopal and Sharda are a Goa-based loving couple with two daughters: Mala and Geeta; and a son, Sushil. They are not very well off and this prompts Gopal to seek employment overseas. He travels by boat and it sinks in a storm, and there are no known survivors. Sharda, destitute and on the verge of starvation, decides to marry wealthy Vijay. Gopal does survive, but loses his memory, and is unable to remember his past life. Then, years later with the children now grown up, Gopal recovers, and returns to Gao, but does not want to interfere with his family's new found wealth and well-being. Vijay finds out about Gopal, feels threatened, and decides to get rid of him so that no one can come between him and his acquired family. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a very sentimental movie
11 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie besides the story is just worth watching for the three excellent songs, especially the classic one by Rafi 'Jab Jab bahar aayee'. Although this classic song has been played at 3 different times in the movie by three different singers Lata and Mahendra Kapoor besides Rafi, but it was not boring and blended well with the situation in the story. Although it seems to be a familiar Bollywood story of 1960s, but the emotions and sentiments have been portrayed very well. It was good to know from earlier reviews that it is remake of a Konkani film, where the same heroine Shalini also played the heroine's role. It was great to see young Farida Jalal and Jalal Agha. Kamal Kapoor also acted well in a negative role. Overall an excellent movie to watch for songs and the story.
