    A meticulous scrutiny about Dev Anand's magnitude in acting ends in smoke, when we are convinced to see that this man, with his proverbial mannerisms, has mesmarised the Nation over four decades. "Can Dev Anand act like Raj Kapoor// Dilip Kumar// Amitabh Bachchan ?"--stupid question that results in no impressive answer. They all have their realms to rule over. But, the most striking feature with Dev Anand who has made his life a philosophy. Like Ulysses he moves on with inexhaustable spirit.

    Dev Anand was a taxi driver, a pickpocket, a CID inspector, a gambler, a secret agent, a tourist guide, a cinema ticket black-marketeer, and a paying guest--a playboy of the technological city, dressed in striped shirts and a leather jacket, a scarf round the neck, a cap perched jauntily on his head ; a huge , six-inch puff jutting out of the cap like a stranding wave of black hair over his forehead. In 1950s, one shoulder higher than the other was imitative practice of the matinee idol.
