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)

Lovers part to meet again,
16 January 1999 | by (Jakarta) – See all my reviews

One of Shashi kapoor's best movies, It was love at first sight when he meets Dr Preeti ( Sharmila Tagore ). Up & downs of life, misunderstandings and years ahead, they meet again when their son unites them.

A beautiful musical Score by R.D. Burman includes some ever lasting love songs of Kishore Kumar,

A must see movie for those who have loved Shashi Kapoor.
