Storyline

On his birthday, wealthy Bombay-based Manmohan, whose father, Shamnarain, is overseas, finds out that he does not have any real friends. Disillusioned, he returns home, and that night overpowers a burglar, Sudesh. He decides to not call the police on the condition that he lets him live in the slums, to which Sudesh agrees, and takes him to a shanty Chawl. The next day, Manmohan, who now calls himself Shyam, meets Sudesh' sister, Shyama, and both are attracted to each other. He then sub-lets a room from a dweller, known as Mausi, and starts to sell ice-cream on the streets as a living. He indirectly uses his wealth and influence to help some of the impoverished residents. He then proposes to Shyama and she accepts - and it is this acceptance that will soon pit him not only against his snobbish and enraged father - but also against Sudesh as well as a much-feared gangster, Ranvir, who wants to wed Shyama at any and all costs.

18 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie starring Dev Anand and Mala Sinha is quite like the black and white classic ASLI NAQLI starring Sadhana and also Dev Anand which had the classic Rafi song EK BOOTH BANAUNGA AUR POOJA KAROONGA. The story revolves around Dev Anand who is a very rich man and gets disappointed by his wealth and goes to live in a poor neighboorhood masquerading as a poor man. Here he meets a poor girl (Mala Sinha instead of Sadhana) and they fall in love. Though this movie has some great songs like Zindagi hai Kya Sun Meri Jaan, Koi Sone Ki Dil Wala and Jaa Re Udhja Re Panchhi the other movie ASLI NAQLI was 10 times better probably because the movie was directed by the maestro HRISHIKESH MUKHERJEE the maker f classics like Anand, Namak Halaal (the only 2 movies starring Amitabh and Rajesh Khanna), Abhimaan, Milli, Musafir, Bawarchi, Bemisaal and many many more. Still worth a watch. watch out for a very very young Amjad Khan in the end of the movie (he was barely 12 years old in a scene with his real life father Jayant.
