Storyline

Mr. Choudhary does not approve of his son, Arun, indulging in singing songs and music. He wants him to be a businessman like himself. Out of fear of his father finding out about his continued indulgence, Arun changes his name to Sanjay Kumar. He soon becomes a popular singer, and is even hired by the local radio station to sing songs. With his increasing popularity, the risk of his dad finding out the truth has also increased, and Arun must try and keep his family life and his singing career a secret, but the question is how long will he continue to do this.

Excellent musical
27 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a great musical movie from the Shakti Samanta - Rajesh Khanna camp which has excellent music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The characters are very strong- Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Nirupa Roy put in a good performance. The movie is a remake of a Bengali movie but retains its originality. Rajesh Khanna as usual puts up a great performance and is good in comedy, romance and drama. He shows the class of being a Super Star in the movie. This runaway hit has also good story, excellent editing and good direction. It is a must see and the songs of Kishore Kumar in the movie are excellent, it seems that Rajesh Khanna is singing them. How they suit each other.
