Good Storyline & Great Performances by Shammi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar
19 November 2012 | by nikkusethSee all my reviews

Sachaai was released in the year 1969 when Shammi Kapoor was almost on the verge of getting retired as a romantic hero of Hindi Cinema.Whereas,Sanjeev Kumar was a rising star at that point of time.It was an unusual pair at that point of time because i don't think both these brilliant actors have worked together in many films and perhaps,this may be the only film in which they have shared screen space.It's a treat to watch both these Superstars together.

This film has a great story of two college friends having different ideologies.Shammi Kapoor plays a conman who is dishonest and earns money by fooling innocent people whereas Sanjeev Kumar plays a simple,honest young man who lives with his own set of principles. One day after completing his education,Sanjeev Kumar gets to know about his father's evil practices and he leaves his house angrily to take refuge in Shammi Kapoor's house.But when he gets to know about the ill practices of Shammi Kapoor, he refuses to stay in his house and leaves from there also.Then,Sanjeev Kumar gets in contact with a thief,a character brilliantly played by Pran. What happens next is very interesting.Shammi Kapoor gets in contact with Sanjeev Kumar's sister,played by Sadhana and her mother.How they change his life and how the life of Sanjeev Kumar changes after he meets Pran is very interesting to watch.I won't reveal much about the movie because it has to be seen to understand the importance of good story-telling which used to be the hallmark of yesteryear's Hindi films.

Johny Walker plays side-kick to Shammi Kapoor and is a treat to watch.Other character actors have performed well.Sadhana looks cute and acts well.Pran is brilliant as usual.Helen plays the role of Pran's sister and does justice with her role.But,the movie belongs to Shammi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar.Specially,the performance & acting of Sanjeev Kumar in the second half of the film has to be seen to understand.The climax is handled pretty well.I recommend this movie to all the fans of Shammi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar.

The songs are good.Specially,Ae dost mere maine duniya dekhi hai is a very hummable duet song sung by Mohd.Rafi & Manna Dey and is picturized on Shammi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar.

Recommended to all. My Rating 9/10.
