Storyline

Plot Summary

In the background of the rise of the International Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s, is a Montreal-based family of the Jaiswals, consisting of mom, dad, son, Prashant, and daughter, Jasbir. Due to irreconciable differences between Mr and Mrs Jaiswal, they separate, leaving Jasbir with dad, and Prashant with his mom. Eventually Prashant and his mom travel to India, leaving father and daughter behind in Montreal. Mr. Jaiswal re-marries, and brings his new wife to live in his home. Years later, Prashant has grown up to be a pilot. He has received a letter from his dad that Jasbir, who had rebelled and left home, is now located in Kathmandu, Nepal, with a group of hippies. Prashant undertakes to find his sister and hopefully get her back to the family. When Prashant lands in Kathmandu he does not find Jasbir, but instead finds Janice, who is indeed his sister with a new name. Janice has no recollection of her childhood, and is always in the company of fellow-hippies. Prashant now needs to bring Jasbir back, but for that he will have to travel deep into the drug induced dark world of Janice. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia During the making of Prem Pujari in Nepal Dev Anand saw a hippie girl puffing a cigarette and got the idea for his next film. HRHK was born. He decided that the girl would be called Jashwin and the story would be based on her. After Prem Pujari becoming a hit, Dev wanted S.D.Burman for the music and his discovery Zaheeda for the role, but both refused. They found HRHK too western. S.D.Burman recommended his son R.D..Burman instead. Dev auditioned Zeenat Aman for the role and the rest is history. The iconic Dum maaro dum was originally not to be there. Dev had told RD and Anand Bakshi the situation of the song. When they created 'Dum maro dum' and made him listen to it, he showed little interest. RD and Anand Bakshi knew that song would be a super hit but since Dev was not interested they insisted he first record 'Dum maro dum ' and they would also give him another song. Dev was very happy to have 'dekho o deewano....' He picturised only half of 'Dum maro dum' on Zeenat and picturised Dekho o deewano' on himself. Singer Usha Uthup got a break but Asha Bhonsle played dirty and snatched it away from her. After this movie Zeenat Aman got several offers to play sister but Dev advised her to reject those offers and made Heera Panna instead where she played his heroine. Due to public demand, Dev Anand was working on the script of Hare Rama Hare Krishna Aaj in 2011 but died before he could complete it. See more »
