A chance meeting between an Assistant Scientist, Shekar, and an established stage dancer and singer, Anjana, results in love. While Shekar has a mother who lives separately, Anjana has been orphaned at an early age. Shekar's mom approves of Anjana, and both get married. Anjana stops her involvement in dancig and singing, and both spent the next several months on relative harmony. Then Anjana finds that Shekar is spending more and more time in the laboratory than with her, and she decides to take up dancing and singing, which does not auger well with Shekar. Arguments ensue, and both decide to live separately. When Shekar's mom comes to visit Shekar, both he and Anjana compromise to live together to fool his mother. Will they succeed in pulling wool over her eyes? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Charm and grace unlimited........!
20 May 2013 | by prathima-p78See all my reviews

Indulge yourself in the era of 60's in Hindi cinema where grace and innocence oozed out of the protagonists. Here, we have a new age woman who insisted upon pursuing her passion of stage dancing post marriage which is frowned upon strongly by her ever busy scientist husband. Without getting too worked up about feminist ideologies this movie depicts, the role play probably witnessed very often in all our families. What amazes me is the charm and the easy virginal innocence of ethereal beauty Hema Malini even when she is dancing in front of drooling men. Songs are good especially Sa re ga ma pa. A good watch.Nirupa Roy gives a good performance and Shashi Kapoor looks divinely charming.
