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.

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.
