Zeenat Aman makes her debut in a minor role, but one look at her and its obvious shes a star of the future.

A young kabir bedi also makes his debut.

O P Rahlan has a great touch as a director, loved his previous movie talaash too. Wonder where he disappeared to.

very interesting premise, a must watch. almost hitchockian theme.
