Wealthy Jaishankar meets and falls in love with Aarti, successfully woos her and agrees to meet with her dad to discuss their marriage. On the way there he ironically runs over him, killing him instantly. Guilt-ridden, he attempts to make amends to look after Aarti, her brother, Pappu, and sister, Mala, but conceals the fact that he was responsible for their father's death. Things get worse after Aarti not only discovers the truth, but also witnesses him getting intimate with a cabaret dancer, Rita. Then Jaishankar is first disowned by his father after the family find out that he had sired a son from Rita, and then subsequently arrested by the Police for killing Rita.

bad direction!!!
26 May 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

aaya saawan jhoom ke starts in a very filmy style.this makes us believe that it is yet another boring movie about bichde hue maa-beta.but the story is quite different.

Yashodha(Nirupa Roy) kills a man for trying to rape her, fearing that she might get caught by the police she leaves her baby at a temple which is later adopted by a childless couple (Nasir Hussain and Dulari).They later have a daughter (Bindu).They name their son as Jaishankar(Dharmendra). He grows up and there is happiness in the family.But his mother is dead. Once when he visits a music concert he gets mistaken to be the singer Jaidev Kanpuri by the organizer(Rajendranath).He later introduces him to Aarti(Asha Parekh). Jaishankar and Aarti keep meeting each other and fall in love.She then asks him to meet her father.But the unexpected happens.Aarti's father gets killed in an accident by Jaishankar.

What happens later forms the crux of the story.Another plot unfolds during the latter part of the film.Though the story is different and new,the treatment of the film is not good.The direction by Raghunath Jalani is very filmy and below average.The entire Nirupa Roy angle could have been done away with.The murder plot in the latter half of the film could have been given more importance.The director has tried to turn the movie into a sentimental family drama which does not work.The direction could have been better and mature.The music direction by Laxmikant- Pyarelal is good.The song 'O manjhi chal' is the best song of the film.It is also very well picturised. The lyrics by Anand Bakshi are also good.Coming to the acting department Dharmendra,Rajendranath,Bindu and Aruna Irani stand out.Asha Parekh could have been better.Laxmi Chhaya dances well and her acting is fine,but could have been better.The rest of the cast comprising Ravindra Kapoor,Jagirdar,Nasir Hussain,Jalal Agha,Dulari,Nirupa Roy and others are good.

On the overall the movie can be watched with the family but is not up to the mark.It is a one time watch.But the song O manjhi chal can be watched again and again.It is beautifully picturised.
