Trivia

The film was first being made in the late 50's by Guru Dutt. The original film starred Kishore Kumar and Waheeda Rehman. In the olden days, every film maker had to show the censor board their films after three reels. This was done to avoid confrontation with censors later on. After shooting 2 reels, Guru Dutt submitted the film to the censor board. After viewing the film, they rejected the theme.They felt the story line of a lady teacher and her student niece falling in love with the same senior professor was in poor taste.Guru Dutt decided to shelve the film.

A swinging sixties blockbuster
30 January 2006 | by neetivgargSee all my reviews

Professor belongs to that era of Hindi cinema when Shammi Kapoor could do no wrong. He lip-synced great Rafi numbers, romanced Asha/Sadhana/Saira/Sharmila/Rajshree in picturesque Kashmir/Ooty/Darjeeling and at times Swiss locations and beat up Pran/Jeevan/Prem Chopra/Prem nath. This fluffy musical romance is no different than the others. He plays Preetam, a man forced to pose as a Professor twice his age due to job constraints. Giving him ample support in the eye-candy department is Kalpana. She looks good but at times gets onto your nerves because of her saccharine sweet voice. Lalita Pawar is great as the strict aunt in charge of Kalpana and her siblings. And the rest of the cast is adequate.

The things that stand out are the award winning music which included gems like "Aye Gulbadan", "Main chali main chali","Awaaz deke humne tum","Khuli palak mein jhoota gussa" and many more delights. Shammi Kapoor, nominated for an award for his performance, is charming and restrained.

Watch it for the songs and Shammi's performance.
