Lala Balwant Rai, affectionately known as Lalaji, is a big business magnate of Calcutta having business establishments at various places, including the picturesque hill station of Darjeeling and its adjoining areas. His grand daughter Aarti, who is an apple of his eye, studies at Darjeeling. Aarti meets a young villager, Somu, in a train while coming home during vacation, when the latter accidentally enters into the compartment occupied by her and her friends. Finding the boy to be a simpleton, Aarti and her friends make fun of him to their hearts content. . Aarti arrives at home accompanied by her friend Sushma and escorted by her relative Pran who had designs to marry her but whom she actually detests. Lalaji proposes two boys of his choice to Aarti for marriage but she declines to arrive at any decision unless she had met and studied them for herself. Lalaji permits her to do so and Aarti meets the two boys with the help of her cousin Murli, in disguise, and comes to the conclusion... Written by alex.mjacko@gmail.com

An ordinary film
20 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Exclusively saw this film to see Sunil Dutt's brother Som Dutt, who was introduced as a hero by Sunil Dutt, along with Leena Chandavarker and Vinod Khanna, all of whom made a debut in Bollywood with this film, which could not make a lasting impact, although the story did provide a scope for the same. There are many successful bollywood movies with similar storyline, but they succeeded because of good songs and music. In this film, one could not see music director Ravi's magic, excepting for one duet. This film proved to be a launching pad for Vinod Khanna and Leena Chandavarkar, but not for Som Dutt. This film was shot in beautiful locations, but that could not help for its success. Om Prakash, as usual was the star performer. Leena Chandavarkar too made good impression, but for some reason director like A. Subba Rao, who had made a very successful film 'Milan' just a year ago in 1967, was not able to extract any performance out of Som Dutt. He could have been made look more handsome, if there was more attention paid to his clothes and looks. This movie is worth seeing only as a tribute to Sunil Dutt.
