Sunata Maut sar per Gumti he per aaj mein Maut ke uppar gumraha hun.

Translated They say death hovers over you, but I m hanging over death tonight. - Mehmood

A Spy-Thriller. I really dont have proper words to describe this Movie. What I like about the Old Bollywood Movies was that the OUTDOOR Shootings. Great places of the country were shot you will feel to be there too. Ankhen aka the Eyes is a great Spy Thriller. A tiny bit of everything. This Movie proves how Bollywood has changed these days. Dont get me wrong I dont have anything against changes but the " good old touch" of Hindustandpan in Hindustani Movies has just dissappeared either in Nudity or copying the great Pieces from Hollywood Just for the sake of the good old Rupaiya. If you see a Spy Thriller of these days in Bollywood mostly 95% a Hollywood Copy the other 5% ofcourse the useless songs. I laughed my Belly off! Mehmood as Spy and his interrogation methods, great lord! The song dede allah ke naam which was partly shot in Beirut, Lebanon was so awesome to watch. Mala Sinha one of the great actress and Dharmendra in those days. Great Plot, great casting, great directing, and ofcourse the Awesome Locations.
Celebrated 25 Silver Jubilee Weeks at 12 Stations. Celebrated Daimond Jubilee Winner of the Filmfare Awards. Shown at Indian Film Festival Moscow Trivia The actress Kum Kum was one of the very few Female Actors who refused to work with Mehmood after couple of Movies.
