Raksha (Kartik) runs away from an arranged marriage to Surjit and meets Madan (Anand) on the road. Madan is on his way to collect an inheritance but he finds that his foster-aunt and cousin Kuldeep (Jeevan) have stolen it. In order to locate the original will, Madan and Raksha disguise themselves and pretend to be married. Madan is later arrested, charged with abducting Raksha but she continues the search for the will and to learn the truth about the death of Madan’s uncle. Songs included Hum hain rahi pyar ke
(sung by Kishore Kumar) and Ankhon mein kya ji (sung by Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar). Like Chori Chori (1956), this film seems to have borrowed plot elements from Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934).
Singer: Kishore Kumar
Song: Hum hain raahi pyaar ke
हम हैं राही प्यार के, हमसे कुछ न बोलिये
Club Song of the 1950s
KYA HO PHIR
This is Vijay Anand's first film. Vijay Anand came from the Navketan tradition, of crime films in urban settings. A club song was a must. Here it is clear he has drawn from Hollywood. A woman smoking, even by implication, was quite a big leap. It offers a hint of decadence and moral turpitude.
The club here is as much a place of entertainment as perhaps of seedy goings-on. But Goldie is interested only in the song—no one else matters, but the set, the women, the music, the sets, which are made on a grand scale.
