Mesmerising music
6 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you want to see a full fledged musical, then this is the film for you. The music By LP is excellent. Ironically, this was the film that halted Rajesh Khanna's record of 15 consecutive super hits. It bombed badly at the box office.

Maybe the Muslim social did not appeal to all sections. Mohd Rafi sang almost all the songs for Kaka, which is unusual. Maybe this also was not fully acceptable to the audience. I really do not know why it flopped.

I certainly enjoyed it. The pair of Rajesh Khanna & Leena Chandavakar is lovely & the story is also quite good.

We always associate good music only to the Kaka-Pancham combination, but here the Kaka-LP combo also creates magic.

Definitely a move worth seeing.
