I was wondering if it was a murder mystery. But the call was to report a petty theft. A lady complains that her purse has been stolen and the girl sitting next to her is missing.
She gives the girl’s description and Police track her down only to lose her again as she enters a house on the way and hides.
In the house, Madhuri (Naaz) hears Shanti (Achla Sachdev) singing Taron ki gori chaand ki gudiya jage ri nindiya to dolls.
Ramesh Gupta (Shyam Kumar) reads in the paper about a wealthy man’s missing daughter – 18 year old, fair, a mole on her left cheek, light eyes and black hair.
Suddenly they realize that Madhuri, one of their aides, also has a mole on her cheek. After confirming that it’s on the left cheek, they (Ramesh and Madan) plot a scheme to prove her as the wealthy man’s missing daughter.
A detective named Sudhakar is killed and Madan’s and Ramesh’s men go to burry him. Prabhu (Bhagwan) happens to reach there at that very moment and discover the deadbody.
He’s attacked but Raj(Subi Raj) arrives and they both fight with them.
Raj and Prabhu learn about Shanti – that her daughter was stolen and that Sudhakar was investigating the case. They impose as detectives and take over the responsibility of finding her long-lost daughter.
On their first day of investigation, they go to a night club in the evening evening to see Helen perform to Chale aana sanam uthaye quadam. Madhuri, disguised as a guy, steals Sadhana’s (Sadhana Coudhary) necklace and hands it over to Madan.
But when the theft is discovered, noone is allowed to leave the club. Madan, scared of getting caught puts the necklace in Prabhu’s pocket.
Prabhu and Raj are also fleeing from police because they don’t want to be caught as imposters. They somehow manage to leave the club.
Prabhu has a big-time crush on Sadhana. When he finds the necklace, he decides to return to it over. Ramesh’s men track Prabhu’s house to take the necklace back but they don’t find it. They even attack Prabhu and Raj but can’t lay their hands on the necklace.
During all this Madan realizes that Madhuri is actually in love with Raj and is scared that their plan would go for a toss if the three of them (Madhuri, Prabhu and Raj) get together.
So he comes up with another plan.
He takes Madhuri to Shanti as her daughter and warns her against Raj saying he’s just pretending to be in love with Madhuri but in real he’s behind her wealth.
Shanti is overjoyed at having her daughter back but she suddenly turns against Raj and doesn’t let him into the house.
Prabhu, on the other hand goes to return the necklace but even there Madan goes and tell’s Mohan Das, Sadhana’s father that it was Prabhu who had stolen the necklace in the first place and he has returned it now just to create a good impression on them, so that he can rob them of their entire wealth once he gains their faith.
Unable to convince the people involved of their innocence, Raj and Prabhu feel helpless. And that’s exactly what Madan and Ramesh had ever wanted.
The bad guys succeed in setting a perfect trap – Madhuri in a place where she can’t defend Raj, anything she tries to do in his favour has a risk of revealing her own secret, that she’s just a character in Madan’s and Ramesh’s scheme and not Shanti’s own daughter; hatred that they implant in Shanti against Raj and Mohan Das against Prabhu and heroes are no longer in a state to do anything to prove themselves innocent of all the accusations because noone is willing to even listen to them.
There are 2 more songs –
The title track was deleted, and as per this, one more song was deleted.
What happens next? Will Shanti ever find her real daughter?
Will Madhuri be caught? Will the heroes be able to prove their innocence?
Who’s this gentleman? (I didn’t find this movie listed in imdb, so had to guess the names of the characters, am not really sure who’s who except for Madan Puri, Achala Sachdev and cracktastic villian Shyam Kumar).
I couldn’t even find when this movie was made. Checked few sites, they only had Dekha Pyaar Tumhara made in the 1980’s starring Kamal Hassan. The CD certificate was dated 1963, but am not sure when the movie was actually made.
There’s nothing to rave about this movie – neither the starcast (most of them were OTT, I liked only the bad guys), nor the story. Even the songs are just ok. I really don’t know why I bought this movie in the first place 😛
Luckily the movie was cut-short and it got over in less than two hours. I was happy when it finally ended. First 5 minutes and one could make out what would follow next.
Not a movie that I would suggest anybody to watch – if you like the songs, watch them on youtube. And if you don’t have anything better to do, re-watch one of your favourite movies 🙂
