Unknown Guru Dutt & Waheeda Rehman Movie.....
27 March 2014 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

12'O Clock Is A Suspense Thriller Directed By Pramod Chakravorty... Written By Tanveer Farooque....Script Is Fine...Story Is About Bani & Solicitor Ajay ....Bani Works For Ajay ...They Fall In Love...Bani Has A Cousin Sister Maya...Who Is Arriving To Mumbai..She Gets Killed ... Bani Who Had Gone To The Station To Receive Maya, is Charged With The Murder....Now Ajay Proves That Who Is The Real Suspect & Is Bani Innocent..Is Base Of The Story...

Guru Dutt & Waheeda Rehman Have a Great Chemistry Even Better Than Pyaasa...Guru Dutt Is Better ...Waheeda Is As Usual ....Johny Walker Plays Important Role...Rehman Does Well...Young Shashikala is Fine...The Casting Is Good...Similar To Guru Dutt Team....

Music is Composed By O.P. Nayyar ...Some Of The Songs Are Really Good ..."Main Kho Gaya Yahin Kahin" By Rafi...."Tum Jo Huye Mere" By Rafi - Geeta & "Kaisa Jadoo Balam Tune" By Geeta Dutt....

Overall A Good Movie....Screenplay & Editing Should Have Been Better...Some Elements Are Similar To "Baat Ek Raat Ki(1962)" Starring Dev Anand & Waheeda...Similarly Dev Has To Prove Waheeda is Innocent & Who Is The Real Suspect....
