Storyline

Ravi (Rajesh Khanna) accidentally lands a job as postman in a remote village after being an unemployed college graduate for some Time. He meets a variety of people as he fits into rural life, including Mohini (Hema Malini). He mistakes her affection for something more, and falls in love, while she is still waiting for a somewhat philandering Army officer with whom she has had a fling with when his battalion is training near her village. Ravi withdraws into himself when he finds out about her fling, and tries to help her locate her love when war breaks out. He brings her news of her lover's death, and there are misunderstandings which cause anguish ... eventually leading to a compromise and a happy ending. A couple of lilting melodies from Rahul Dev Burman compliment this film ... Allah megh de, Dakhiya Dakh Laya, and Koi mere mathe pe bindiya .... it is somewhat of an extension of Khushboo, with some of the theatrical roles reversed. Sarat Chandra Chatterjee was known for poignancy in... Written by Ram-ster

Terrible film, zero continuity
19 September 2012 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

If you want to see Rajesh Khanna's hair change from his older short style to his newer "sufi" style and back every five minutes, see this movie. At one time he gives a letter to Hema Malini and has short hair and is cleanshaven. In the next scene he has crossed the street to give a letter to Farida Jalal and here he has long hair and a two week beard. Just an awful movie. Couldn't bear to watch more than half an hour. I want to know what the other reviewers here were smoking when they saw this movie. The kindest thing I can say is that perhaps the director (Meraj) signed Rajesh Khanna by mistake, and lacked the budget to work through the superstar's eccentricities.
