User Reviews

rare Indian flick with superb thriller touch
19 July 2010 | by ashi-lanceSee all my reviews

It's very common notion that we people at India can't make a movie with a gripping suspense that holds a person to the edge of the seat but this movie does proves all those wrong especially with being made some 40 odd yrs ago when making such movies was not considered sensible and was rare. Although with its time length of 3hr5min it seems bit too long , but its originality in script, screenplay and crunchy movements and good tracks make up for its long time length . The story is not about creating an identity of a man who is not there in actual , its more than that with so many people being a part of the gang disguising Dev anand. its mystery story telling at its best with all elements of thriller being involved . its not only the script but the acting of ashok kumar and that of female leads especially vaijyanti Mala make it must watch classic for any Hindi movie fan!!
