Storyline

Two small children, Rekha and Amar, undergo a marriage ceremony under guidance of their respective parents. Years later, Rekha and Amar have grown up, and are now capable of fulfilling their marriage vows and living together. Both are attracted to each other. It is only after a few days of their living together that Amar confides to Rekha, that his real name is Kumar, and that the man she married in her childhood is his best friend, Amar, who is already married with Lata, and have a child of their own. Devastated, Rekha must now come to terms with her new life-partner, or seek drastic alternative remedies to escape the stigma that has been thrust upon her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Nice Flick of Shashi Kapoor & Asha Parekh
8 September 2009 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The chirpy acting style of Shashi Kapoor with the evergreen Asha Parekh in this movie of late sixties is respectably poised to bring light entertainment. The jaunty love affair and scenic screenplay in the Kashmir valley adds interest.

The Rafi-Lata number "Likhe Jo Khat Tujhe" is beautifully pictured against the backdrop of picturesque mountain valleys. Asha Parekh exudes the typical essence of a mountain girl exhibiting remarkably identical body language and folk gestures.

Mohan Kumar has done a good job as regards his directorial skills but the theme of the story is too weak to make the audience engross their attention through to the end.
