Great Musical Entertainer
21 February 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Thoroughly enjoyable romantic movie of the 60's. A great musical entertainer, though lacking in directorial finesse. Saira Banu is excellent in this film. For those who remember the lingering rock & roll of Hindi cinema, reminiscent of songs like "Jaan Pehachan Ho" from the late 60's hit "Gumnaam", this one is a musical delight. The film is more of a family entertainer. Mohammad Rafi's evergreen voice is resplendent with songs like "Hum Bhi Agar Bacche Hote Naam Hamara Hota Babloo Gabloo" evoking fond childhood memories. A must see for all those lovers of romantic Hindi films of yesteryear. Those familiar with the musical genius of O.P. Nayyar will appreciate the maestro's fine use of the harmonium, 'santoor' & guitar.
