Storyline

Mr. Srivastava lives a very wealthy lifestyle with his wife, and two sons, Mahendra and Sunder. He plans to get both his sons married to women from equally wealthy backgrounds. This does not happen, as Mahendra falls in love with Seema, who is poor and lives with her stepmother. This creates considerable acrimony in the family, and Seema is not accepted as a daughter-in-law. Unable to find a solution, Mahendra takes to alcohol and falls in the bewitching clutches of a beautiful courtesan by the name of Bahaar. While vacationing in Srinagar, Sunder meets with Sapna, who also comes from a poor family, falls in love with her and wants to marry her. She, too, falls in love with him. After the vacation, the two then part company. The next time Sapna sees Sunder in the company of a pregnant woman, and overhears that Sunder is soon to be a father. Did Sunder decide to obey his father's instructions after all? If so, what is to become of Sapna? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

A band with the name "Ted Lyons & His Cubs" also appeared in "Gumnaam" (1965) performing the song "Jaan Pehechaan Ho" that Enid is seen dancing to in "Ghost World" (2001). Here, the band wears Beatle wigs and performs the song "Tumse Hai Dil Ko". The music bears more than a slight resemblance to "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by the real Beatles. See more »

Lighthearted Romantic Drama
2 April 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Janwar Directed By Bhappie Sonie...Is A Romantic Drama....Script Is Fine....Screenplay Is Better For Such Script...Everything Works..

Story Is About Mr. Shrivastava Who Lives A Very Wealthy Lifestyle With His Wife And Two Sons, Mahendra & Sunder.... Mahendra Falls In Love With Seema, Who is Poor, Lives With Her Stepmother... This Creates Acrimony in The Family, She is Not Accepted As A Daughter-in-law..... Unable To Find A Solution, Mahendra Takes To Alcohol And Falls In The Bewitching Clutches Of A Courtesan Named Bahaar.....While Vacationing In Srinagar, Sunder Meets Sapna, Who Also Comes From a Poor Family, They Fall In Love & Want To Marry..... After The Vacation, The Two Part Company.... The Next Time Sapna Sees Sunder, He Is In The Company Of A Pregnant Woman & Overhears That He is Soon To Be A Father.....So What Is The Reason... With Few Twists & Turns ...Finally We Have A Happy Ending...

Shammi Kapoor As Sunder Is Similar To His Earlier Movies...He Does Well In The Romantic Scenes....Rajshree As Sapna Does Well With Her Performance ....Rehman & Shyama Both Did Fine....Above All Prithviraj Kapoor As Mr.Shrivastava Is Amazing ...He Is Too Good In Few of The Scenes.....

Music Is Composed By Shankar Jaikishan Is Again Excellent....Mostly Rafi Songs Like "Tumse Accha Kaun Hai" "Meri Mohabbat Jawan Rahegi" & "Laal Chhadi Maidan Khadi" Are Well Written By Hasrat Jaipuri & Shailendra......

Overall A Lighthearted Romantic Flick ....Good Songs & Interesting Screenplay ..Even Though Story Is Predictable Keeps You Moving...Must Watch For The Kapoor's :)
