Trivia

Yash Chopra had conceived the role of Chandni with Raakhee in mind. Though shorter in length than Sharmila's role, it was author-backed. Raakhee had no romantic songs with Khanna either. All the songs belonged to Sharmila. Raakhee was nominated in the best supporting actress category at Filmfare for her role. See more »

Quotes

Sunil Kohli: Don't insult her!
Chandni: What? A woman you've known for two days ranks higher than one you've known for five years?
Sunil Kohli: Don't forget that I've only given you my name!
Chandni: I know, but I'm human, not stone! I love you! I'm beautiful and young; what's in Sonia that I lack?
Sunil Kohli: Sonia's my wife, Chandni!

Yash Chopra's Masterpiece !
22 July 2005 | by Umar Mansoor BajwaSee all my reviews

This is definitely among one of the earliest hit pictures accredited to Mr. Yash Chopra, who is still ringing the bells in Bollywood by his recent success of block buster Veer-Zara.

Besides, the direction and intriguing/exciting story, Rajesh Khanna has rendered his charismatic romantic touch with Shamila Tagore which is beautifully filmed by Mr. Chopra. It is indeed, one of the last hit films of the Rajesh Khanna Years, who was already experiencing the onslaught of the Angry Young Celluloid Intruder namely Amitabh.

It has a good bit of songs footing as well nice direction to call it a super hit.
