Fun and Frolic
11 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The film like this one and 'Victoria no. 203' and 'Ek se badkar ek' are fine attempts to entertain masses. If you are a lover of chase crime dramas, then see this one and you will never forget. Men like Ashok Kumar, Pran, Iftikhar and Anwar Hussain were indelible part of such entertaining pictures.

Storyline is simple and there is nothing much to say about performances, yet its entertaining appeal is universal. There is not a moment which would bore you, it runs and runs and runs. All the characters are in a way following each other. The scenes between Deven Verma, Shashi Kapoor and Ashok Kumar are funny. You will definitely like this one.
