Dev Anand started directing his films since Prem Pujari, and that's when Navketan started to slide downhill. The problem with HRHK is not in the story - which is quite impressive, original - but in the treatment. Shoddy edits, weak dialogues (as if translated from English!), but yet another MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA by Pancham. All songs were great, to say the least.
