Arjun, a hot headed but soft hearted man, always finds himself in situations that others take him as a bad person. His childhood teacher Masterji is the only person understands him & appreciates his good quality and Arjun follows his instruction/wishes completely. Arjun loves Aarti and wants to marry her but Aarti's father does not endorse this alliance and decides to get her marry to someone else. Arjun is agitated but Masterji calms him down and asks him to not disrupt this marriage, instead convince Aarti to marry the boy her father has chosen for her. Arjun follows what Masterji has asked him. Devastated Arjun finds love in Margret who he has been fighting with since she came to town. Now Margret's uncle and mother are against their marriage. This time Arjun is not lenient and does not even listen to Masterji. Arjun and Margret run away and commit suicide jumping down a mountain. Written by Vinod Arya

3 September 2007 | by (Kuwait, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the early works which brought Rishi Kapoor & Neetu Singh as a hit pair in the 1970's.

The story revolves around Rishi Kapoor, who is conceived as a bad person, while the fact is he is kind but being misunderstood by others. He falls in love with Moushumi Chaterjee, and gets rejected by her family, who gets her married to somebody else. He then falls in love with Neetu Singh after so many hate and fights between the two of them. The rest should be seen to avoid spoiling the surprise elements in the film.

The movie has some melodious songs like "O Hansini", which is still popular till date.

Watch it if you like to see the magic of the hit pair Neetu & Rishi.
