Nice movie with a great message!
27 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a classic.Gorgeous Rajesh Khanna and beautiful Sharmila Tagore did it justice to their roles.Very well directed.Rajesh Khanna wears a sleeveless shirt and trousers (somewhat of a safari suit). On any other actor, the attire would have fallen flat, but Khanna, as a small time thief, carries it with characteristic élan.The dialogues are also great especially the "Badi Kutti Cheez Hai', used with outstanding flamboyance by Khanna, stands out.Must watch for any Rajesh Khanna fan!
