Manoj Kumar was in awe of Mala Sinha because she was a big star when they were making the film. But she was not very friendly. She would sit and watch all his shots, then correct him afterwards. This would irritate Manoj Kumar and he was hoping she would just leave him alone. One day Mala Sinha's father met Manoj and told him that Mala Sinha was praising him. This made Manoj realize that Mala Sinha was only trying to help him. After that Manoj loosened up and was able to start a friendship with Mala Sinha. See more »

Good Story, Musical
13 January 2006 | by mohsinleghari3000See all my reviews

The story of the movie is already written in the plot summary. So there is no need to repeat it. The film has a very good plot. Mala Sinha is excellent while Manoj Kumar is above average. From the other actors, Shashikala, I think, is quite successful in performing the role of a careless wife and mother. Manmohan Krishna also impressed me in the role of a trustee and a father. Overall the performance of all the cast was very good.

The music of the film is its main plus point. Each and every song made me lost. Especially, "Yeh Hariyali aur Yeh Rasta" was most wonderful. While "Lakhon Taare Aasmaan Mein" was most absorbing. Shanker-Jaikishan deserves appreciation. The direction is also good but it is not flawless. There are some scenes that were not needed. Especially the humour is not treated well. The climax also did not satisfy me. That is why I have given the movie 8 out of 10.

Overall a treat to watch but if you want to enjoy it, enjoy it with full concentration and peace of mind. Recommended for music lovers, fans of Mala Sinha and if you want some taste of 60's.
