Storyline

Preeti lives a wealthy lifestyle in Bombay along with her widower dad, Heerachand, and is a medical student. While on a trip to Simla, she meets and falls in love with a Casanova, Prem, and both get intimate. When her dad opposes this alliance, Prem challenges Heerachand regarding his daughter's love for him. He then leaves Preeti a note, explaining that her father refused the alliance and he was headed to meet his mother, who was urgently sick. Heerachand gets a hold of the letter before Preeti and changes the letter, writing that Prem went away as her father refused to provide any monetary compensation. Years later, both Prem and Preeti are fated to meet again. This time Prem is accompanied by a handicapped young lad, Rahul, while Preeti is about to get engaged to Dr. Amar. Preeti soon realizes that the reason Prem has re-appeared in her life to be near her nubile to-be sister-in-law, Tikki. The question remains what will she do under the circumstances to try and expose Prem as well... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Aa Gale Lag Jaa
31 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when it was first released in Mumbai (Bombay) in 1973 when I was a child. The songs, were and still are enchanting, the acting, the story and the acting was excellent. The direction was also the same. The movie, which had been filmed in the town of Simla, in the foothold of the Himalayas, northern India, has some brilliant cinema photography and especially where the song "Mera Tumse Hai Pehle" with the playback by the late Kishore Kumar is filmed. In some of the skating scenes, you can see that no stuntman or woman has been used and that the actors are doing these scenes themselves

I saw this movie again after a very long time and it still had its charm and the music and the songs "ever green." Worth to watch with your family.
