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 »

Jaanwar is a story of two men, with a very strict, wealthy and proud father. The Jaanwar in this film is played by their father (Prithviraj Kapoor), who has big plans for both his sons, which include both marrying namely and wealthy girls. As fate has it, both his sons fall in love with very poor but beautiful girls. Their father arranges for the older brother to get married, as on the same day he learns his older son is a father to be. He tries to buy the girl out of his families lives forever, but that only humiliates her, as she runs away to attempt suicide. His second son is at his "bhabhi's" rescue as he takes her to Calcutta to find his brother. He ends up losing the love of his life through many misunderstandings caused as he helps his Bhabhi, as his father also plays a major part in the break-up. When the sons find out about their father breaking up their love, both the sons leave their father, and their mother joins. Will this old lonely man learn the importance of family and love? Do the lovers reunite and live happily ever after? Watch Jaanwar to find out.
