A Dev Anand Classic
21 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Funtoosh Was Directed By Chetan Anand & Produced By Dev Anand's Navketan Films ...The Story Revolves Around Ram Lal Funtoosh Who Is Back From Mental Asylum And How He Faces The World ...Consequences & Outcomes ...Story Is Good ...Script Is OK Would Have Been Better ..Screen Play Is Average...

Dev Anand Gives A Bit Different & Amazing Performance ...Comic Timing & Expressions Are Really Better ...Shiela Ramani Earlier Seen In Taxi Driver Gives A Fine Performance...Finally K.N Singh The Stylish Villain Is Again One Of The Better Part Of The Movie ...He Was Hilarious In Few Of The Scenes...

Music Was Composed By S.D.Burman...He Was The Composer For Almost All Navketan Films...In This Movie Kishore Kumar Sang All The Songs..Unique Song "Aye Meri Topi Palat Ke Aa" To Classic "Dukhi Mann Mere Suno Mera Kehna"...

Overall A Good Movie ...Must Watch For All Dev Anand Fan :)
