Aa Gale Lag Jaa
31 August 2006 | by Pratik112See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when it was first released in Mumbai (Bombay) in 1973 when I was a child. The songs, were and still are enchanting, the acting, the story and the acting was excellent. The direction was also the same. The movie, which had been filmed in the town of Simla, in the foothold of the Himalayas, northern India, has some brilliant cinema photography and especially where the song "Mera Tumse Hai Pehle" with the playback by the late Kishore Kumar is filmed. In some of the skating scenes, you can see that no stuntman or woman has been used and that the actors are doing these scenes themselves

I saw this movie again after a very long time and it still had its charm and the music and the songs "ever green." Worth to watch with your family.
