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.

Maya = Asli Naqli
20 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Maya Was Directed As Well As Written By D Kashyap ...The Story Is About Rich & Poor With Their Difficulties & Connectivity ...Script Is Well Written & Performed But A Year Later Released Asli Naqli Starring Dev Anand Was The Pretty Much Similar ...Every Thing In The Movie Is Similar ...Except The Climax Here We Have A Particular Villain In This Movie ...Which Makes It Different From Asli Naqli By Hrishikesh Mukherjee...

In The Acting Department We Have Dev Anand The Rich Fellow Falling For Poor Girl Mala Sinha Just Like Sadhana In Asli Naqli...Mala Sinha Was A Better Actor So No Comparison With New Comer Sadhana...Both Were Good ..Dev Anand Was As Usual In Both The Movies...

The Music Of The Movie Is Composed By Salil Chawdhary ...Few Numbers Are Good Especially Rafi & Lata's Duet "Tasveer Teri Dil Mein" ...Music Of Asli Naqli Was Given By The Very Best Shankar Jaikishan ..It Had Classic Songs Like Tera Mera Pyar Amar & Tujhe Jeevan Ki Dor Se..So Comparatively Asli Naqli Had Better Songs...

But Not To Forget Maya Was Released First Ya It Was Not That Successful Like Asli Naqli But It Was A Great Attempt By The Director.. Overall A Fine Movie...If You Have Seen Asli Naqli You Can Skip ..Watch If You Wanna Know The Difference Between Both The Movies...:)
