Movie worth watching!
6 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

a very good movie with good story and music, the only draw back being that, it is in Black & White, while one expects a 1968 movie to be in Eastman colour. Irrespective of the colour issue, the movie holds a grip on the viewer till the end of the film. It reminds one of some similar movies with one night scenario like Gumnaam, Dulhan ek raat ki, Barsaat ki ek raat etc. There are four memorable songs, one each by Lata, Rafi, Mukesh and Asha Bhonsale, which makes one spell-bound and leaves the Roshan music aura behind them. Roshan seems to be the co-producer, as one sees his wife Ira Roshan's name as Associate producer. Overall one would like to put this movie in a must-see list of movies for story, music and action. Zahida, Sanjeev Kumar and Parikshit Sahani, Ajay Sahani, as he was named then performed very well. .
