Riches-to-Rags Musical Entertainer - Amazing Quest Adaptation
20 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Bollywood style song & dance adaptation of a forgotten 1936 Cary Grant movie "The Amazing Quest of Ernest Bliss". Dev Anand plays a spoiled playboy, who decides to earn his own living after a tiff with his industrialist grandfather. Finds a life among working class 'real people', and enjoys it. Especially when he meets Sadhana, a volunteer teacher. Gets a job and keeps it for a while with her help. Unnecessary twists complicate the plot, and separate Dev and Sadhana, before the usual happy ending can be engineered. Shanker-Jaikishan's music is lilting as usual, and the Rafi-Lata duet 'Tujhe Jeevan Ki Dor Se' leads the hit parade. Typical 60s Bollywood fare - a good basic storyline with the usual 'masala' - twists, melodrama, and memorable songs.
