Ram Kumar Verma is an honest albeit unsuccessful Insurance Agent. His poor performance and a quick settlement for Renu and her mom gets him transferred to Madhya Pradesh. During the train journey he comes across Nathu Singh, and thinking that Nathu is an emperor of sorts, gets him to insure himself for Rs.5 lakhs, to which Nathu Singh agrees. Ram Verma returns to his company and is heartily congratulated by his Manager and the General Manager even throws a party for Ram. Subsequently, the Manager realizes that the person Ram has insured is actually a wanted dacait and thug commonly known as Daku Nathiya, wanted by the police dead or alive. Fearing the collapse of the insurance company, the Manager coerces Ram to return to Madhya Pradesh and get Nathiya to cancel his insurance policy.

Rajesh in a double role
29 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In this movie Rajesh Khanna is playing a double role - one of a simple insurance agent and one of a robber. The robber uses the strong dubbed voice of Kader Khan but does not look dreaded. The music of the movie is good and the storyline is simple yet it manages to hold the attention of the viewers. This movie was released at a time when a series of his movies were bombing but this was good movie which did not do well as it was released in that period. R D Burman excels in his music. Rajesh Khanna as a simple insurance agent acts his part well. But seems to be slight misfit as a robber- may be the role could have been done by someone else. Moushumi and Rekha are good in their roles. It is over all a good movie which shows that even in bad days- the superstar was giving good performances.
