Jaanwar - Classic Superhit Film of Rajesh Khanna
30 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film was a superhit at the box office although subsequently this film is not well publicized in T.V (rarely telecasted). The film is on par with Haathi Mere Saathi in fact even better. Story has been made in a manner that its believable right from start till the end. Music is excellent by Lamikant Pyarelal and lyrics very meaningful. Rajesh Khanna's facial expressions and voice modulations in the scene when he realises zeenat likes him, zeenat cannot talk, him introducing to Nirupa Roy etc.. is simply excellent. Films like Maa(76),Dharam Veer,Mard,Coolie are nowhere near this film in terms of performance of lead actors,music. The film brings together Pran and Rajesh Khanna together and another speciality of this film is Pradeep Kumar is given villains role. Zeenat gives spellbound performance as a mute girl is first half and as talkative proud girl in second part.Its a must watch although first 10 minutes you will have to bear some not so well taken shots
