Storyline

Widower Amar is well-off financially, and lives in a house with his daughter, and servant Dayal. His sister and brother-in-law want him to marry again, so that his daughter can have the love and care of a woman. Amar reluctantly agrees. Together they set out to check out two sisters, Shobha, and Sheela. Amar goes as Dayal, and Dayal goes as Amar, as Amar is not sure if a step-mother will be able to bestow care and love as a real mother. They arrive at the household of Durga, Shanti Swarup, Renu, Sheela, and their servant Geeta. They begin to settle down, Dayal in a spacious room, and Amar in the servant's quarters, which consists of an untidy room with no electricity. It is not long before Amar finds out that he is attracted to Geeta, and not to the two sisters, but in his present state, he cannot reveal himself, and openly propose marriage. In the meantime, Durga starts getting suspicious about Amar, and starts wondering if Amar is actually a servant or a crook. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fantastic!
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The movie is not exactly a comedy but more of a Drama but the idea is Brilliant. I was a kid when it was released and I still remember people complementing it at that time. I watched it years after on DVD and felt that I should have seen it much earlier. What a miss it was! Sanjeev Kumar was OK. Jaya was her usual self. It was actually Mehmood who stole the show. And that too after a very long time he (Mehmood) is seen in a very memorable role. There was a very rare appearance by Shailendra Singh who plays Mehmood's Brother and I was overjoyed to find him in the cast. The movie carries emotions and the story how the Idealism in relationship between a Servant & Master should be. Each is ready to make a sacrifice for the other. I just loved it as Today's world may find it unconvincing in the race to make money where people are ready to cheat rather than yield.
