    This movie is just a typical 80s movie which is NO classics by any means. Dr Shreeram Lagoo has a munim, Utpal Dutt who wants a necklace. He kidnappes Lagoos wife and murders her, blames the murder on Pradeep Kumar and then kills him. Years later Lagoos daughter Poonam Dhillon meets and falls in love with Jeetendra who is the son of Pradeep Kumar. Utpall Dutt wants his son Prem Chopra to marry Poonam. Also Jayshree T is in the movie along with Asrani who overacts but Jayshree T is always nice on the eyes. No great songs either. If you have nothing to do and actually enjoy really bad movies, you might want to watch this one. Warning : this is not one of those movies which is so bad its actually fun to watch (like Dev Anand movies from the 80s and 90s), this movie is plain BAD.

    It is worth to watch it entertains you 100%, it has comedy, action, suspense, thrill emotions which all the Masala movies has, Prem Chopra wearing top to bottom in single colour costumes, Same color pant, shirt, coat, tie, hat even shoes with same color rose it is so funny, Jeetu Poonam Dhillon 1st time together, Poonam looks so cute & beautiful, while Jeetendra looks so young & dynamic & dance songs with Poonam Dhillon was well picturesque ,Jeetendra dialogues when he appear as Guru Ghantal he deliver words his own films in sequence so good, Fight scene with Manik Irani in Lift also well composed, direction was O.K. tiger scene with Asrani too hilarious, After all this worth to watch movie, Uptal Dutt as Vallian is so so.
