Asli Naqli is the story of Dev Anand a rich cynical aimless young man. His grand father, Nasir Hussain wants Dev to marry a young girl of a rich family so that Nasir can take over the wealth of the girl's father. Furious Dev has a showdown with his grandfather and leaves his lavish home. He roams around hungry & tired. Anwar Hussain takes him home and Dev lives in the small hut along with Anwar's chatter box sister Sandhya Roy. Dev meets Sadhana and after a short romance interspersed with beautiful songs they decide to marry. Nasir Hussain tries to wreck the marriage plans but it's a happy ending with Nasir accepting Sadhana as Dev's wife.

Asli Naqli has very beautiful songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishen, like "Cheda mere dil ne", "Tera mera pyaar amar", "Tujhe jeevan ki dore se" etc.

I will rate Asli Naqli 8 out of 10.
