PG Certificate


Our Score
Movie references abound in this colourful masala, which is not only packed with memorable songs, but also manages to tack a happy ending on to the Romeo and Juliet story. Director Raj Kapoor is in playful mood throughout, making many of the love scenes between his son Rishi and Dimple Kapadia mirror classic moments from his own on-screen teaming with 1950s superstar Nargis. Moreover, he casts the hissible Prem Chopra as himself to act as the deus ex machina, whose abduction of Kapadia sees a cessation in the feud between her fisherman father and Rishi's rich relations.


A young man returns from boarding school and falls in love with the daughter of the servant who looked after him as a child. However, neither set of parents is happy about their relationship and resort to increasingly desperate measures to keep them apart. Indian romantic musical, starring Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Pran and Prem Nath.
