Storyline

In desperate need of a job, unemployed Ravi (Jeetendra) goes to his maternal uncle (A.K. Hangal) and aunt (Leela Mishra) in their village for a few days. His uncle decides that he can be a suitable teacher for five obstinate and spoiled grand-children of the wealthy Rai Saheb (Pran). Ravi accepts this offer, and goes to work as a tutor with them. He soon realizes that it is not upto him to keep his employment there, but rather to the children themselves, who have never tolerated any tutor beyond a few days.

The R.D. Burman - Gulzar combo strikes gold...again!
7 April 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Loosely based on "The Sound of Music" (though Gulzar insists it was inspired by "The Turkish Family"), this movie is a must-see for the performances - especially Jaya Bhaduri and the children. Jeetendra is good too, in his odd wooden way. Pran is good as usual.

Once more, for the umpteenth time, music composer Rahul Dev Burman spins out memorable gems. Listen to "Musafir hoon yaaron", "Beeti na bitaye raina", "Saare ke saare", and "Mitwa", and you feel a sense of loss. How Pancham was underrated in his time, and what more he could achieved, if he was around with us. What beats is me is how all the so-called judges missed awarding R.D. for such out of this world music scores.
