The star-struck school kid, Guddi (played by Jaya) fails to distinguish between the onscreen image and the real life prsonality of her favourite actor Dharmendra (played by Dharmendra himself). From the innocent eyes to the mannerisms of an awe-struck kid, Jaya got all the details just right in the film.
Starring along side Rajesh Khanna, Jaya played the happy soul in a family full of frustration in this Hrishikesh Mukherjee film. Jaya infused life into the character of Krishna who was mistreated by everyone in the family but was never rude to them.
Gulzar’s film showed Jaya as the eldest of kids in a house where the parents are no more but the grandpa takes care of them all. However, there are misunderstandings between the kids and their guardian. Jaya perfectly portrays the leader of a kids’ gang who is loving and caring but also goes to all lengths when she needs to protect her loved ones. We also saw her naughty side in the movie that also starred Jeetendra.
Jaya played the college-going Vasudha beautifully in this multi-starrer directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. She was paired opposite Amitabh in the film that also featured Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee in pivotal roles. Her biology classes with Amitabh and Corolla-Karela jokes still find audience among Bollywood fans.
