Shashi Kapoor and Mumtaz excel in this tale of a wrongfully accused lover. The story line is simple. The first half deals with the usual poor boy, rich girl love affair. The second half is more action oriented. However what makes this movie really enjoyable is that both Shashi and Mumtaz have rendered relaxed and spontaneous performances. The movie does not lose its charm and the music by Ravindra Jain is pleasing to ears. A must see if you enjoy watching Sahshi Kapoor's movies.
