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.

Soft Movie
26 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein is a very soft romantic movie which has Super Star Rajesh Khanna playing a soft romantic role of Postman in a village. The movie has some wonderful moments and has fabulous acting by Rajesh Khanna. The music by Laxmikant Pyarelal is soft and has a no of melodious songs and the main song is still very popular. Jeetendra puts in a small role and Amzad Khan is there too. The story set in a village has a good narrative. One feels one is seeing a Gulzar movie. A must see for people who love soft movies and like the acting of the Super Star Rajesh Khanna. Hema Malini puts in a strong performance also and one feels sad for her character. The village characters are strong too.
