Kiran is transformed from a poor woman into an heiress who stands to inherit millions from the estate of her late father.
29 December 2013 | by mg-gopalanSee all my reviews

A good movie to watch if you like a slight variation of Bombay's filmi formula. Kumar (Jeetendra) is a wealthy man who has been betroth to Usha (Mumtaz) since childhood.

Both love each other, and the family nourishes the relationship. The last will and testament of Usha's father makes some provisions that only can be crystallised when Usha attains majority; and there are codicils to the will that only Kumar can fulfil. Usha grows up as an orphan, and has all the negative attributes of a wealthy, whimsical person.

The plot develops nicely with Ajit, the secretary of Usha's late father taking over the script, with his inside knowledge of the family affairs of his late master. A fine performance.

Kiran, a girl brought up in a poor family, with good values gets drawn into the plot hatched by Ajit wily nilly, because she is a look-alike of Usha. Her conflict between good and bad, right and wrong is well portrayed by the nubile and expressive Mumtaz.

The direction is tight, cinematography above average and the comic interludes are barely tolerable. The usual song and dance routine is mostly forgettable. The main theme song is rather good, and recurs through the movie in appropriate places.

A movie that many can enjoy.
