Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions.

Routine Fare...
1 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

1978 flick 'Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan' is a routine fare from the long-gone era. It has some memorable music, good direction and likable performances, but where it falters, is it's writing. The screenplay goes for a toss in the 2-hour, which spoils the fun.

'Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan' is the same old story of a how a Young Man from Bad turns into a Good Soul. How he realizes the importance of living and how he begins to respect people. Been-There-Seen-That Stuff!

While the writing is completely dull in the second hour, Sikandar Khanna's direction is good throughout. The soundtrack is memorable and acts like a true asset.

Performances are good: Rishi Kapoor is honest and likable in the central role. Moushumi Chatterjee is decent. Ashok Kumar is excellent, like always. Mithun Chakraborty is passable. Asrani manages to bring up a few laughs. Ranjeet as the conning villain, is alright. Amjad Khan is fair. Paintal leaves a mark.

On the whole, though far away from being a must watch, this flick still manages to come out as a one-time-watch.
