The storyline is very complicated and twisted. Therefore, I will do my best to explain with not many spoilers...but that is so hard to do.....BTW, I've seen Sharmeelee also spelled Sharmilee but my dvd has the first spelling.
Kamini and Kanchan are twins, both played by the gorgeous, young Rakhee. Kamini is the sassy, outspoken, modern twin while Kanchan is the very shy, timid, traditional twin. Both end up falling for the handsome, military man Ajit (Shashi Kapoor). But it's Kamini who stole Ajit's heart away. Tragedy hits and Ajit is tricked to marry Kanchan. Ajit's Army Colonel wants him to capture a spy who resembles the twins.
Wow!! This storyline is very interested. Never was I bored while watching. Every moment I was entertained. With the beautiful music and scenery, add in the handsome Shashi and gorgeous Rakhee. I have to admit - I used to be afraid to watch older films. Not just Bollywood, any language because I was ignorant and didn't want to watch slow-paced movies. Thankfully, I have overcome that!
Kamini - the shy, timid, traditional twin
Kanchan - the sassy, outspoken, modern twin
Since I've always seen Rakhee as a mother role, whether it's - Karan Arjun, Yeh Vaada Raha, Soldier, etc. Never have I seen her before as a heroine. My goodness - Rakhee is soooo freaking gorgeous. Love her her makeup and outfits in the film. Wait, my mistake, I've seen her in Kabhi Kabhie, but she was not sexy like that in KK.
Not only is Shashi so adorable and good looking, his acting does not disappoint. Since I've seen an older, still handsome Shashi in a uniform, I was delighted to see him with one in this film.
The music is wonderful. I love it.
Song #1 - "Khilte Hai Gul Yahan" - I

Song #2 - "O Mere Shameelee"
Ajit is wondering why Kamini is acting so shy

Sad, disappointed Kanchan. Ajit and Kamini together.
Song #4 - "Aaj Madhosh Hua"
Wedding and imagination
Song #5 - "Kaise Kahein Hum"
Ajit celebrates with his friends, his marriage.
Song #6 - "Khilte Hai Gul Yahan" - II
Is Ajit missing too much Kamini and imagining her?
Song #6 - "Reshmi Ujala Hai"
Maybe I've been reading the wrong forums or gone to the wrong web pages. But I keep reading about critics stating that actresses these days are skanky and not as classy as before. So when actresses these days dress sexy, they are consider showing too much skin. Have they seen any oldies films? Look at the item number above? Plus check out Rakhee rocking it with a sexy black bathing suit below. (I have nothing against actresses wanting to be sexy. It just bothers me when people say that actresses now shouldn't show skin but skin showing was always around)
This scenery is just so beautiful.
