Storyline

A talented artist (Rajesh Khanna) falls in love with a London-returned doctor, but his past creates problems for him. When that part of his past is resolved and he is to marry the girl he loves, he loses his eyesight in an accident and wounds up a prisoner of a cruel princess. He escapes, and is helped by another man, who nurtures and allows him to recuperate. When the artist returns home to find that the girl he wants to marry is engaged to the man who helped him recover. These songs are still popular: "Kitne arman, kitne sapne laya hoon main dekko na..."; "Diwana lekke aaya hai dil ka karaar, dekho kahin yaaron tukra na dena mera nazrana..."; "Diwana karke chodoge lagta hai yoon humko, sau bar kaha eh jane jahan yu pyar se tum dekka na karo..."; "O mere dil ke chain, chain aye mere dil ko dua kijiye..."; "Chala jata hoon kisiki dhoon me dadakte dil ke tarane liye..."; Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Fantastic Film
12 December 2003 | by praks99See all my reviews

This movie is one of my personal favorites and is, in my opinion, one of the most romantic movies of Rajesh Khanna. The story line is quite simple but the charisma of Rajesh Khanna, the songs of Kishore and the music of RD Burman are pure magic.

This movie could be watched merely for the voice of Kishore and the music of RD Burman. "Kitne Sapne Kitne Armaan" is a gem: watch out for the spectacular entry of Rajesh Khanna at the start of that song and the magic yodeling of Kishore. The other gem is "Oh Mere Dil Ke Chain". This song is just sublime and one of the greatest, if not the greatest, romantic song of Kishore. The final Kishore tour-de-force, "Deewana Leke Aya Houn", conveys tremendous pathos and is nothing short of breathtaking.

Movies like Mere Jeevan Saathi come only once in a lifetime, like several others during that era. If you can relate to that era, watching it will move you again and again, with a tinge of sadness for a bygone period not to be found again, like it has done for me...
