Great songs and a decent storyline
18 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 60s threw up many movies with the lost and found formula. Shakti Samanta's Ek Raaz belongs to the same category. Kishore Kumar plays Arun/ Kishore, the missing son of a rich businessman. He foils an attempt on the selfsame businessman's life and in gratitude, the older man offers him a job. And falls in love with the heroine (Jamuna). Of course there's a villain, Pran, who puts in a lot of obstacles in the path of love. But for the fairy tale ending, the misunderstandings are resolved and the wicked get their comeuppance. The movie has some great music by the underrated composer Chitragupt. "Ajnabee se bankar", " Payalwali dekhna", "Uthegi tumhari nazar" and many more good songs. Kishore Kumar acts as a buffoon in the first half but is surprisingly sober in the second half. Lalita Pawar is very good as the grieving mother who's lost her son. A good movie.
