Solva Saal might not be Raj Khosla's best. It hardly is anything near to his later awesome works. But then the film never promises much more than being a freewheeing romance with a bit of drama and thrills thrown in. I will not say that the suspense and intrigue are of top quality but I did not mind sitting through it just to see how Kashyap comes up trumph in his pursuit of the missing pearl necklace. This is not a gripping mystery, neither does it have the chills of Khosla's later works. But what it does have is a pleasurable love plot between that main protagonists.
It is the adventures of Prannath and Laaj that make the rest of the film. It shows how Laaj starts believing in this stranger and is attracted to him, how Prannath is absolutely smitten with this damsel and how the two fool the crooks to get back their belongings. The ending is the best--- happy and sweet.
Dev Anand is, in a very easy and effortless way. I'm not considering the scenes where he puts up an inane charade to get to the thieves. I'm talking of the jaunty parts where he delivers to perfection. Like in the song, Yehi to hain woh (Mohd Rafi), it actually looks like he is enjoying himself. His expressions are funny and perfect. Also in the title track, he is flamboyant and chirpy.
