Two business partners, Lalaji and Gupta, are also very close friends, and expect their friendship to turn into relationship when their children, Rakesh and Neeta respectively get married. Things appear to be going according to plan, but change abruptly when a young man named Gopal is rescued from drowning and brought into the Lalaji household to recuperate. Gopal does recuperate and in order to repay his gratitude he offers to be employed by Lalaji in their business. Then Rakesh is killed by falling off a cliff; Gopal assumes control of the business; Lalaji and Gupta's friendship breaks up; he woos Neeta; and brings a look-alike of Rakesh - a hoodlum named Kishan - who is out for only one thing - that is to take over the wealth of the two businessmen - by hook or by crook.

User Reviews

A formula Bollywood product of the '70's
24 July 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

An evil villain, a handsome hero, a glamorous girl, romance, fights, songs and comic interludes combine to unfold a story of greed with an unconvincing double identity twist.

Rekha looks like a dark-haired Diana Dors from the mid sixties and will be almost unrecognisable to those who only know her from Silsila and later films.

The movie is available on a double DVD with Sadaa Suhagan but has been heavily cut to fit. The English sub-titles often display an eccentric turn of phrase but despite this, it is possible to follow the story without too much difficulty.
