Storyline

Ramdev Bakshi is the only son of widower and former Indian Army General Durgaprasad, who has been decorated several times with various medals for bravery shown in the line of duty. Alas this did leave him crippled, after he lost a leg during the war with Pakistan. Ramdev is also enlisted in the army, but he is peace-loving and detests war. He has a sweetheart in village belle Suman Mehra, and both hope to get married soon. He does answer the call from the army and joins active duty, only to be arrested and court-martial-ed for disobeying orders. After being dishonorably discharged, he disappears from Suman and his father's lives. Years later, Suman enters a beauty contest and is crowned Miss India. She travels with her mom to Britain, where she meets with Ramdev. All attempts by Suman and her mom to strike up a conversation with Ramdev are in vain, as he refuses to recognize them. He now calls himself Peter Andrews and accompanying him is his wife - Mrs. Andrews. Is this really Ramdev... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Superlative Music
31 July 2001 | by mr218See all my reviews

The movie has a fantastic music score. S.D Burman has not only scored great music, but also sung an immemorable number in his unique inimitable style. This is the title song 'Hum hai prem ke pujari'. Apart from this, the movie has a number of good numbers like Rangeela re, and Shokiyon mein ghola jaye But the piece de resistance and arguably the most romantic Hindi number of all times is ' Phoolon ke rang se , dil ki kalam se '. Worth watching for this alone.

Apart from that the movie has a very good starcast, with the leading pair of the dippy and dashing Dev Anand and the beautiful Waheeda Rehman. Although for some of the scenes of the movie, Waheeda is overly made up and has some horrible hair dos, which detract from her natural beauty. Movie is ok, especially keeping in mind Dev Anand's current offerings and well worth a watch
