Storyline

A singer by profession, Suraj (Rajesh Khanna) gets stranded in resthouse in the coutnryside during a rainstorm. While there he experiences ununsual feelings, as if he has been there before. He feels himself transported to another time and era, to another birth, and drawn to a woman named Ratna (Hema Malini). He is unable to leave this experience behind him, and decides to find out what this means. He discovers that in his past life he was a Chief Singer in the emperor's court, his name was Prakash and he had fallen in love with a courtesan named Ratna, much to the chargin and anger of his family and the emperor's and his officials. They are tragically separated. He subsequently comes across a portrait of Ratna, and shortly after he meets a gypsy, Jhumri (also Hema Malini) who looks exactly like Ratna. Soon Jhumri is also able to recollect her past life, and her love for Prakash. This does not auger well with Rita Malhotra (Asha Sachdev) who loves Suraj, and Appa (Prem Chopra), the son...

Reincarnation with some great music
29 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mehbooba was a lavishly mounted reincarnation story of two lovers Super Star Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini. The movie directed by Shakti Samanta has great music by R D Burman and Kishore Kumar singing some great numbers. The movie is well mounted, has great sets and is shot in the exotic locales and is a classic in its own way.Rajesh Khanna puts in a great performance and looks different in the movie. PremChopra, Madan Puri,Sujit Kumar and Asrani put in a good supportive roles. It is must watch as to what Rajesh Khanna is capable of delivering and of course for the great music. This movie is available and is a must watch for the sets, locales, dances, music and performance of the Super Star.
