Storyline

Wayward, brash, and disobedient Mohan (Shammi Kapoor) is sent by his angry dad Diwan Badriprasad (Ulhas) to a retired army captain Dayaram (Om Prakash) to learn some discipline and respect. But Mohan asks his friend Anokhe (Mehmood) to switch places with him, and Anokhe agrees to do so. Mohan meets with Meena (Mala Sinha), who lives with her blind dad (Manmohan Krishan). Anokhe is welcomed as Mohan by Captain Dayaram and his daughter Malti (Shubha Khote) in their household. Eventually both Malti and Anokhe fall in love. Things start to get even more muddled when Captain Dayaram finds out that Anokhe is married to another woman, and that Anokhe drives a rickshaw. The police are notified and they are asked to arrest Mohan - they arrest 3 Mohans. Who is the real Mohan? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Some great songs, some ordinary story
3 August 2014 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

This was a lively comedy of errors and deception with Shammi Kapoor at his most exuberant - and tiresome. At least it gave Rafi a couple of excellent songs, although imho his vocal dignity was always out of place with all of Shammi's facial gurning and physical gymnastics.

Confusing tale has wayward spoilt brat (guess who) being sent by his father to a retired ex-army jailer to learn some discipline but the brat swaps places with his agreeable Tony Curtis actalike friend and eventually they both find women, love and big problems. The best thing about the film was that Mala Sinha as the schoolteacher was perfect, her generally placid demeanour contrasted well against all the slapstick around her – and as usual she photographed beautifully, even when absolutely drenched with rain water. And there are some fantastic Shankar-Jaikishan songs too, but none more so than the title song Dil Tera Deewana sung by Rafi and Lata with crazy couple Shammi and Mala in the thunderstorm complete with some tremendous images. It's even better in the colourised version; Singin' In The Rain with the soaking Gene Kelly was never as sexy as this! The melodious and thoughtful Masoom Chehra Ye Qatil Adayen again beautifully sung by Rafi and Lata also looks amazing in colour if you get the chance to see it. But overall apart from a couple of funny moments and the glorious tunes (even in black and white!) and their photography thrown in the film was an unconvincing throwaway farce that's merely OK as a fairly pleasant time-passer.
