Bhagwan at his Best !!!
5 October 2018 | by hguy1See all my reviews

This movie will easily feature in the top ten list of the most entertaining Hindi movie ever. No doubt. The major contributor here is the songs. A dozen of them and one better than the other.

The hero, Master Bhagwan, was not any hero material. At best, a short stocky comedian. Nonetheless, he acted opposite the effervescent and bubbly Geeta Bali to make this gem of a movie.

No mean contribution by music director C. Ramchandra who also sang all the songs under his pet name Chitalkar.
