"They don't make them like they used to"

BRILLIANT, A MUST SEE!

Watch this film and then you will realise what the old folk keep going on about. You should also realise after watching this why Madhubala was and always will be the greatest actress ever to have graced the Indian screen.

Join Madhubala on one night of pure madness as she outwit's one villain after another.

A brilliant story line, hilariously funny, full of twists and turns to keep you guessing. This is one of the rare occasion's that I have seen a female in the lead role and the film is actually good.

Severely entertaining.
