Aadmi Aur Insaan(1969)

I saw this in Nehaflix's "Back in stock" section and was immediately tempted to order it solely because I find Saira Banu so fascinatingly odd-looking. Dark hair suits her, and red is definitely her color, as seen from 1:40 - 2:55 of "O Neele Parbaton Ki". In the green outfit, she reminds me of Hema Malini for some strange reason. I think it's the bangs and the eyeliner.

I'm not a fan of either Dharmendra or Mumtaz, but I'm willing to give both of them a pass because A) I found Dharmendra hot in that "older gentleman" way in Johnny Gadar(which reminds me, I need to fish it out from wherever and try to watch it again) and B) Mumtaz looks totally smokin' in the "Zindagi Ittefaq Hai" song. (Isn't that also the title of a movie?)

I skimmed the plot summary and it sounds like the usual melodrama. I might like it. And it might just collect dust on my shelf. The thing about impulse buys is that I rarely watch them more than once. If only I had been conceived during the late eighties or early nineties. I probably wouldn't know anything about buying DVDs because I would simply download movies from torrent sites. (I'm generalizing, I know, with me.)

Aadmi aur Insaan is a fab film, Mumtaz had a wardrobe to die for, even by today's standards. Its melodrama but watchable melodrama i'd give it between 6-7 /10
