Good Musical thriller
5 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dev Anand plays a asst/driver serving a rich man, Shyam babu in Kolkata. A poor man that he is, falls in love with a rich man's daughter( Asha parekh) amid some comical circumstances where both play hide and seek. He borrows Rs.35000 from a mysterious stranger to play the role of an estranged brother in law to a dying rich man in Darjeeling.

What follows is a series of mysterious and baffling chain of events which plunge the hero into a deeper and ever deeper conspiracy. Good melodious songs and taut screenplay and suspense is kept up almost to the end, that makes it worth your time.

A good watch for Dev anand and Mystery film fans!
