Ravi (Dharmendra) is an eligible bachelor who stays with his mother, Jamuna (Sulochana). He meets the rich Kanchan (Asha Parekh) and as is prone in all Hindi films, he does play some naughty pranks on her. But the girl is too swift for him and she retorts marvellously. However, after all the initial misunderstandings, the two fall in love and make for such a halcyon picture. They sing, dance and romance amidst the tea gardens of Darjeeling. Love never looked so good. Dharmendra is as gorgeous as gorgeous can get and Asha Parekh is sweet, classy and charming.
Kanchan is also a feisty girl. When she realises that she cannot live without Ravi, she promptly leaves her father's home, boards a train and goes to Bombay. Asha Parekh did a similar thing in her previous film, Bharosa, where she was Guru Dutt's sweetheart. (But while Nana Palsikar came over to the city to look for her Raj Mehra is not bothered! Strange, huh! Anyways, as I said, I'm ready to forgive these niggling faults.) And then when she realises that Rachna is madly in love with her employer's son, she actually gives her tips to win his heart, without knowing that this is the same man who once stole her heart.
And then there are the fabulous songs. Modh Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor just infuse life into the numbers created by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Khudaya khair is naughty and teasing, Mera mehboob is precocious and Aaye kaash kisi diwane is jaunty. Khat Likh de has an element of waiting as well as longing. It's folksy tune gives enough scope to Parekh to flaunt her nimble dancing prowess. Mere dushman is a tad preachy but has a good lilt. The picturisation is fine.
