To portray Hema as "Dream Girl", most of the dirctors indulged in pomps, spledour and glamour and arresting attires to display Hema Malini. It was none other than Gulzar who was able to unearth the divine beauty in Hema. Her feminine delicacy is , all the more, vivified in austerity and simplicity. The true beauty you discover in her in the films like "Khushboo", "Kinara" and"Meera" are hard to find elsewhere.

    It was from "Parichay" we had parichay with the poet Gulzar, a revised Jeetendra and melody of Pancham (R.D) with fresher timbres. Though the story is an adoptation from "The Sound of Music", directorially and in story-telling style it was totally "Gulzarian". Jeetendra, the new teacher, brings in a new taste of life to the pent-up children, who used to stay under strict custodian of their uncle, Pran. The film has fun, emotions, sentiments and, of coures, romance.
