A pauper who finds it all
22 February 2008 | by HeadleyLamarrSee all my reviews

Asli Naqli (1962) - Hrishikesh Mukherjee picked the evergreen Dev Anand (almost 40 then) to star opposite a very beautiful and very young (21 yrs) Sadhna in this film. Anand is a rich playboy who runs away from home rather than marry the rich socialite fiancée picked by his very rich grandfather. Forced to slum it he finds out what is really important in life, encounters Renu (Sadhna), falls in love, has the love almost snatched away from him, but all's well that ends well.

The story is most mundane but is told in a very heartwarming way that was typical of Hrishi Da. The relationships Anand develops in the slum, his struggles to survive, the foster family that adopts him, his various jobs, his romancing - it is all so heartwarming. The music by Shankar Jaikishan is very good and notable numbers are Tujhe Jeevan Ki dor Se baandh liya hai, Tera Mera Pyar Amar, Lakh Chupao Chup Na sakega. Dev gives full value for money - does not miss a beat, Sadhna has to be seen to be believed - she is that sweet and beautiful and natural. She and Dev have an on screen chemistry that was very visible in Hum Dono a year earlier and continues into this film.

Another one for the A list from Hrishikesh Mukherjee.
