Great music and a terrific lead pair
18 January 2006 | by neetivgargSee all my reviews

This movie has some evergreen songs namely "Sau saal pehle", "Jiya O Jiya", "Teri zulfon se", " Uff Yuma." Also it made a superstar of its young heroine Asha Parekh, who remained one of the top actresses of the 60s throughout. She is very believable as the lovely Nisha. Also Dev Anand and she made a great on screen couple. By the time this movie was being made, a lot of mannerisms were already being associated with Dev Anand. However, in this movie they look natural. His portrayal of Sunder is fantastic, amusement at her indignation that he calls her "Gaowali" (villager), love at her child like innocence and suppressed rage at her unexpected betrayal. Wish they did more movies together other than just Mahal.
