Storyline

Kind-hearted yet naive Bajrang (Mehmood) drives a taxi (laila) and helps anyone he can. He is devoted to another kind-hearted gentleman and long-time bank employee by the name of Sadhuram (Om Prakash). Bajrang is attracted to a school-teacher, Vidya (Bharathi), whose brother is an artiste, Dina Nath (Kishore Kumar). One day a man claiming to be a child-hood friend of Sadhuram, named Sher Khan (Pran), enters their lives. His motive is to rob the bank where Sadhuram is employed and blame Sadhuram for this. He manipulates Sadhuram into accepting him, and moves in with him. He borrows a large sum of money from Sadhuram, and also manages to duplicate the bank's safe's key, and steals the money.

A Great movie............
27 February 2011 | by jani-priyamSee all my reviews

Mehmood was one of the best comedians we had during 60's and 70's....he attracted audience more than the lead actor...for example you can see Humjoli and you would be confused is Jeetendra really was lead star or it was Mehmood..All the lead actors of that time were envious and they made a clause in their contract that they wouldn't work in film if had Mehmood....This led to Mehmood's downfall....But a man like Mehmood who had already fought many problems in life like poverty,struggle didn't care about this....He went on to make his own films like Bombay to Goa....Kunwaara Baap...and this one (Saadhu Aur Shaitaan) Talking about the film....Mehmood plays a role of Taxi driver......whole film is conveyed with a taxi......what a film?????/excellent.....mind blowing comic timings By Mehmood and Kishore DA....don't miss this one.............
