Review

Our Score
An epic Indian tale of love that crosses the borders between India and Pakistan. Just before his marriage, Chander (Rishi Kapoor) is swept away at sea and wakes up in the care of a young girl, Henna (Zeba). He finds that he has no memory of his past life. A storm on their wedding night returns Chander's memory and he realises he must go back to India, though he's now wanted by the police as a spy. The traditional virtues of the Indian cinema are readily apparent (songs, costumes and sparkle) and the film is put together with considerable charm, making it accessible to audiences unfamiliar with the genre.
