An excellent story about lookalikes, Jeetendra delivers a knockout with both acts
20 January 2017 | by (Kolkata) – See all my reviews

Jaise Ko Taisa can be regarded as Ram Aur Shyam - Version 1970. However, this is the tale of two lookalikes and not twins.

A college student Vijay (Jeetendra) is under severe financial duress and wants to get Rs 3,000 for his mother's cancer treatment. All options fail and he tries to steal the money from a home unsuccessfully. But the owner is Vinod (Jeetendra), his lookalike, and the simpleton helps him out with the money. One day, Vinod lands up at his doorstep, terrified by the acts of his maternal brother and maternal uncle - who treat him worse than a dog and want to usurp his wealth. Vijay decides to help out Vinod, and set everything right in his life, in an attempt to pay back his favor. What happens next is total hilarity and one wonderful sequence after another.

This is the type of movie where you let your hair down and do not care much about the realism. A total fun film, with Jeetendra delivering from the front in both roles and aided by Reena Roy, Anwar Hussain, Ramesh Deo and Srividya, this is the sort of movie families liked to go to in the past with kids in tow.

Direction by Murugan Kumaran is tight, and he does not let the film wander unnecessarily with boring comic tracks. A special mention about the music - the title track is a ear worm and can be played on loop. When viewed with the picturization of Jeetendra whipping the evil Prakash Chand (Ramesh Deo), you are likely to go berserk. Ab Ke Saawan is a legendary track, and has been remixed many times but comes without any vulgarity. Kaun Si Woh Cheez dedicated to mothers is a sweet and emotional track that will make you love your mom even more. Bhaiya Re is a fantastic dance track with Jeetu and Reena. Chalte Chalte is a good romantic number while the haunting Sajan Kaha Jaungi Main Vapas (which is the 'Fire Esho Anuradha' track in Bengali) by Lata is excellent. R.D was a genius.

The film was a super-hit and deserved to be so. A remake of Telugu Movie Bullema Bullodu (1972), this one deserves to be watched many times as it comes with great repeat value. You can watch it with friends, all alone and even with kids. I am taking out 1 star for a comical cleavage shot and slight double entendre. But in many places, it really brings out the childish innocence in you.
