Storyline

Kumar, though of Indian origin, lives in Africa. He has recurring dreams of a Railway Station in India called "Viran Nagar". He decides to find for himself and travels to India along with his friend, Rocky. They are able to find Viran Nagar railway station, which is exactly as Kumar had dreamed of. When they go to find a ride, the locals shy away from them as behave as though they have seen a ghost. They find temporary accommodations and set out to discover the mystery behind Kumar's dreams. Then a young woman, Sapna, meets with Kumar, tells him that she has been awaiting his return, and now they can be together again. But Kumar has never been to this place before, and ends up even more confused. Then another local villager named Bansi tells them he had himself seen Kumar getting killed and buried in the nearby forest. Kumar and Rocky must now find out who was killed, and why the villagers believe that Kumar has returned from the grave. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Complicated melodrama
16 November 2013 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

It starts with a man brutally stabbed in the back in front of his infant child, cuts to a troubled Rajesh Khanna, goes backward and forward in time, place and relationships: it's all rather confusing really. It was where Khanna (looking more like the ghost of old American actor Edmund Purdom) made his big break so it's worth a look just for that, although there's some lovely tunes as well.

Dreamy dreaming guy in Africa feels the call of India, doesn't know why or when he gets there why people look at him as if they'd seen a ghost, or why he's already in love with a woman he's never met and vice versa. It's almost impossible to seriously describe the tortuous plot, or to gravely drop a spoiler for that matter - save to relate a lot happens and it's all stylishly done with some swift editing to hold the attention. Although the wiry Khanna had a couple of loud thumping fights with the baddie work supervisor which dragged on a little. I've always enjoyed a good melodrama and this is; the old English actor Tod Slaughter would've loved to have worked on this one as the glaring moustachioed evil uncle! Some of the songs are sublime, especially Rafi's stately version of Akele Hain, while Lata and Mukesh had a nice duet with Dil Sambhale, both out in the woods. Mughal E Azam was referenced by Manna Dey with an amusing if undignified Jab Pyar Kiya To Marna Kyon for the comedy relief.

Overall, a puzzling film and along with the characters I kept getting many flashbacks myself – The Man From UNCLE, Portrait Of Jennie, It's Never Too Late To Mend to name a few. Because it was trying to be many different films at the same time it has many things to like (maybe logically) despite its foggy plot getting in the way. Even without the music it's still interesting!
