Review

Our Score
Shammi Kapoor confirmed his status as Bollywood's most dashing rebel in this charming romantic comedy. Raised to think that laughter is beneath him by his domineering mother Lalita Pawar, Mumbai tycoon's son Kapoor is dispatched to Kashmir with sister Shashi Kala to thwart her relationship with the lowly Anoop Kumar and contract his own marriage to princess Azra. However, he quickly learns to enjoy life after being stuck in the snow with free spirit Saira Banoo. Beautifully photographed by NV Srinivas, this lively reworking of the formulaic themes of class prejudice and domestic duty is epitomised by Kapoor's Yahoo song, which is a highpoint in Shankar Jaikishan's ebullient score.

Summary

A straitlaced aristocrat falls madly in love with a beautiful woman from a lower class and finds his outlook on life is transformed. However, his killjoy mother would never agree to the romantic union, creating a troubling dilemma for the smitten man. Indian romantic musical, starring Shammi Kapoor, Saira Banu, Shashikala and Anoop Kumar.
