Professor = Comedy + Good Songs + Great Acting
21 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Professor Was Directed By Lekh Tandon ..Written By Abrar Alvi Who Use To Write For Guru Dutt Movies... Script Is Well Written...Screenplay Is Awesome...Story Revolves Around A Young Fellow Who Is Unemployed...How He Gets A Job Of Professor ...What Changes He Has To Go Through .....Consequences & Outcome.... Is Basic Of The Movie...

Shammi Kapoor Does Well With His Characters As A Professor / Pritam.....Shammi Kapoor Was Better In Comic Situations Just Like Junglee....Kalpana Is Fine But She Would Have Been Better...Laita Pawar Gives One Of Her Best Performance...She Is Superb Throughout The Movie...

Music Is Composed By The Very Best Shankar Jaikishan...So The Songs As Expected Are Good...Numbers Like "Aye Gulbadan" By Rafi, "Khuli Palak Mein Jhoota Gussa" By Rafi & "Aawaz Deke Hume Tum Bulao" By Rafi & Lata Are Excellent ...

Overall A Good Comedy Drama...Must Watch For A Shammi Kapoor Fan...Dil Tera Aashiq Which Was Made In Early 90's Had The Same Plot ..Starring Salman & Madhuri...With Some Altered Concept...
