A musical hit
29 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ajanabee stars the SuperStar Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman. The movie is directed by Shakti Samanta and has some excellent music by R D Burman. The songs are even hit today and people hum these songs even today. These songs are remixed and presented in a new way but the original is original and one must not remix and spoil the old numbers. Anyway, the movie is about two lovers who get married and get separated due to confusions and then unite again. In the midst of it there is a murder and there is suspense. The movie was a run away hit has some excellent scenes and is worth seeing. Rajesh Khanna gives a superb performance in the movie which is worth a watch.
