This elderly man, Girdharilal takes an unusual interest in Ajay's girlfriend, Deepa. While Bhola and Ajay try to find ways and means of getting rich by turning Girdharilal in, a number of horrific homicides are committed, all against former business associates of Girdharilal, and the clues all point toward the hapless duo.

Trivia

In Guddi (1971), the title character played by Jaya Bhaduri is shown with the Song booklet/film booklet of the film "Anupama". On the rear cover of the booklet (visible to the audience briefly) one can see the advertisement for Buddha Mail Gaya as "N.C.Sippy's Next Buddha Mail Gaya". Interestingly the advertisement reads "Starring: Dharmendra". It is not clear if it was intentional (as Dharmendra appears as Dharmendra in Guddi) or if the film was intended to be made with Dharmendra in the lead role See more »

Surprises till the very end
18 March 2004 | by ArvindVyasSee all my reviews

Om Prakash as a character actor always was a treat to watch. His roles were full of comic adventures, a smart person who is not afraid of making a fool of himself or a full who thinks he is the smartest person. In here he plays a person who is seemingly docile but could be a murderer!!

The good part of the movie is nothing is this movie is what it actually seems to be! Even if you have read the plot of this movie, there are still surprises and they come out at the very end of the movie. Very few Indian movies have been able to maintain the suspense. Om Prakash is certainly a treat to watch. Naveen Nishchol is also at his prime. Deven Verma provides comic relief in style.

8/10 and is a movie which has something for everyone.
