The cult classic which re-introduced Zeenat Aman as a complete actress. She donned the stunning westernised look with her attitude on sleeves. Hare Rama Hare Krishna is a movie that broke the usual drama of Hindi movies.
Hare Rama Hare Krishna speaks about the story of two siblings, Prashant (Dev Anand) and Jaswir (Zeenat Aman), who are torn apart by their high society parents after they get separated. Prashant is grown into a fine man with values who still loves his sister and who wants to find her. Jaswir who has gone with her father has renamed herself as Janice and has turned into a drugged hippie. She changes herself to run away from her past and forbidden childhood. She is constantly told that her mother and her brother have died. She is also ill treated by her strp mother that urges her to leave her home in search of peace.
Dev Anand narrated the story of the bichade hue bhai behan in the most explicit manner in his debut directorial venture. He successfully created magic on screen with his story and the characters of the movie. Dev Anand as an actor has also portrayed one of his finest performances in the film. Mumtaz as his love interest portrayed a commendable role supporting her love in every walk of his life. But the one who needs a special mention in the movie is none other than the main highlight of the movie, Zeenat Aman. She is undoubtedly the show steeler. She played one of the boldest roles of her time and proved to be an unbeatable actress.
Music by R D Burman is another attractive point in the movie. He proved his versatility again. He showed his rough side of his composition with the evergreen number Dum Maro Dum, which is complemented highly with Asha Bhosle's voice. And with the romantic track Kanchi Re and the sweet song Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka, R D Burman showed his lighter touch to his compositions.
With its mind blowing music and spectacular direction, Hare Rama Hare Krishna is a classic that one can't afford to miss.
