The second wife of kind-hearted,and generous Amirchand Bhargav is Durgadevi Bhargav (Nadira), who is exactly the opposite of her late husband. She rules over her household, alongwith her brother, Makhanlal (Madan Puri), with an iron hand, and also over her step-daughter, Shanti (Vidya Sinha), who she treats worse than her servants. Due to her brutality, there is always a dearth of servants in her household, and hence most of the work must be done by Shanti. Her other daughter is Roopa (Moushumi Chatterjee), is bad-tempered and spoiled. When a former employee of Amirchand, Ratanlal (Shreeram Lagoo) approaches Durgadevi for marrying her two sons to her two daughters, she humiliates him and turns him away. Unperturbed by this, he asks the assistance of his two sons, Ram (Sanjeev Kumar) and Laxman (Shashi Kapoor), so that the marriages can take place, and at the same time Durgadevi and Makhanlal be taught a lesson. Both the sons readily agree to do this, and Ram goes to Durgadevi ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fun and frolic
8 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

If you are a fan of southern make family dramas, then you will like it. This movie has all the cliché ridden ingredients. A wicked stepmother, her pleasure loving daughter, hard working stepdaughter, Two prince charming, monstrous relatives, You name it.

Its always nice to see Nadira but here even old bones Madan puri is watchable. Sanjeev Kumar and Shashi Kapoor are always fun to watch. There isn't any place for acting histrionics but usual family twists and turns make it a good pastime.

Good music with two very sweet songs.

Okay, 7 out of 10.
