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.
