    As good an introduction to vintage Bollywood as any - a gem that was way ahead of its time.

    The main problem with this film is that is labours slowly towards its more interesting conclusion. For the most part of the film it feels like an outdated romance.

    I really enjoyed this "old school" Bollywood film. While it seems to be a meandering romance--entertaining but not particularly memorable--an unexpected turn results in one of the most profound and well-executed depictions of spirituality and man's relation to The Divine that I have yet seen depicted on film. Dev Anand gives a remarkable performance which captures the incredible series of transformations of Raju the Guide along his unforgettable journey.

    good for the songs and the picturisation, not faithful to the novel in terms of portraying the characters. maybe because devanad produced it, he had to make himself a bigger hero :)
