This film has got a super cast - Rajesh Khanna, Waheeda Rehman, Raaj Kumar, Reena Roy, Jeetendra etc., but the story & direction by Sultan Ahmed is not up to the mark.

Having such a cast, he should have thought much better. Rajesh makes his appearance only after a good 30 minutes into the film. He meets Raaj Kumar only in the climax. It was disappointing since they had acted together in hits like Maryada & Kudrat. Music is average.

But the film has been mounted on a grand scale & so production values are good.

Another addition to Kaka's films.
