Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Sharabi
14 January 2014 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

directed by I.S Johar the late Indian actor of past century 1900's who appeared in many films was a actor & director too not many people know him but his one of his most know film is Harry Black 1958.

the cast:for a film this weird they had chooses Rajesh Khanna & Shashi Kapoor lookalikes even the names are similar Rakesh Khanna & Shahi Kapoor don't know who these guys were.Rajesh Khanna was famous that time these people thought to use him as a plot device the film story does revolve around a lookalike of him.

the plot:pure nonsense you will have to just forget this no one has even seen this film & there are no reviews it was a film that cant be categorized in any class like ABC OR D its was a Z grade film,as far as i know it was about few people doing scams,jokes & usual good guy bad guy stuff but as a spoof of bond or other Hollywood films,not serious.

i highly doubt that this film is even available in India on DVD maybe since it was Indian film.the highlight of this film was music & one song became legendary people have even made jokes on it in India & Pakistan it was a Qawalli sung by singer Aziz Naza called Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Sharabi i loved that,people remember this song only not the film as no critic has even seen this i bet,this 4 decades old movie i not a worth watch but if you want look it up on you-tube you may find the music video of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Sharabi it is way funny BTW the song is not on the soundtrack its on the internet you will have to look it up.

overall this came in 1974 if if wasn't for that funny song Jhoom Barabar Jhoom i would not be here giving a review,anyway don't see 5 Rifles 1974 at all just watch that legendary funny song.

Anyway MY Rating is 5/10 only for that one classic piece of music.
