  • Director: Vijay Anand
  • Year: 1970
  • Cast: Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Pran, Prem Nath, I.S. Johar

Vijay Anand made many great films with brother Dev Anand in the lead—Kala Bazar, Tere Ghar Ke Samne, Guide, Jewel Thief—and also many without him, like the breathtaking Teesri Manzil. In this film, they come toge­ther for a breezy crime caper, one of the many separa­ted-at-birth-brothers stories that would be a much-used trope in Hindi cinema later. The languid comedian I.S. Johar plays a triple with und­erstated humour, and Hema Malini is at her prime. Dev Anand dons many disguises in this one, something which became a sort of leitmotif in his other films: there was a full film about a different look called Des Pardes with Tina Munim. Vijay Anand was one of the most consummate filmmakers—directing, producing, writing, and acting in films.
