Shekhar is a Lothario. He's also the son of the Public Prosecutor. After his philandering has exhausted his parents' patience, he takes a fancy to Saradha and contrives to put her in a compromising position. She cannot escape from marrying him after her father accepts the Public Prosecutor's proposal of a union between their offspring. Shocked by his bride's contempt for his behaviour, Shekhar resolves to wait until his wife accepts him of her own volition. When she contracts pneumonia he gains the opportunity to win her love. However, an encounter with an old flame lands him in jail and Shekhar finds himself facing his father across a courtroom, charged with murder. Written by van Goethem

A jubilee entertainer from the jubilee Kumar
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Humrahi has a plot line which seems to be lifted out of a Regency novel, Redemption of the Rake. The severely hackneyed plot line aside, Humrahi has a fine performance from Jubilee Kumar Rajendra Kumar as Shekhar Dharamdas. Son of a rich public prosecutor and a flirt to the boot, he is instantly smitten the not-at-all-interested-in-him Sharada (Jamuna). He compels her into a loveless marriage and sets out to woo her heart aided by superior Shankar Jaikishen numbers like "Woh Chale Jhatak Ke Daman", "Mujhko apne gale laga lo eh mere humrahi", "Yeh ansu mere dil ki zuban hai". She relents only to have him taken away as the primary accused in an ex-girlfriend-turned-vamp Hemlata (Shashikala). How the couple arrive at the actual murderer's whereabouts form the remaining half an hour of the movie.

The comedy track between Mehmood and Shubha Khote and Rajendranath - Shashikala looks forced at times and the editing leaves much to be desired. However Rajendranath does a fine volt face in his only other role as a male antagonist.

Jamuna as the stoic, self respecting Sharada is OK. Nasir Husain is commendable as the father disillusioned with his son's cavalier behavior and its a pleasant change to see the grand mama of all obnoxious, stereotypical ma in laws Lalita Pawar as a loving matriarch. But the movie belongs to Mr. Kumar who is effortlessly charming as the roguish Shekhar and earnestness personified as the reformed son.
