Where did you watch this movie?

Hussain’s reworking of Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957) repeats the former film’s plot, except that the long-lost father is replaced by a mother. Heiress Jamuna (Sulochana) is deserted by her husband Rana, who takes their son Roop with him. She adopts Kailash (Rajendranath) and Neeta (Parekh) and wants the two to get married. However, Neeta falls in love with a rock singer who turns out to be the grown-up Roop (Kapoor). The villain Harichand persuades Jamuna that her son is in fact his accomplice Sohan, and that Sohan should marry Neeta. The confusion is resolved by way of a shootout during the marriage ceremony. Shammi Kapoor repeats his trademark scene, impersonating a Muslim gentleman (cf. the Dekho kasam se number in Tumsa Nahin Dekha), Professor Saamri, who sings Do ekam do while dispensing advice to other characters. The story merely provides a framework for a series of rock numbers including the title song Dil deke dekho, dil dene walon and Pyar ho to keh do Yes (sung by Mohammed Rafi).
