Rebirth story with echoes of Bimal Roy’s Madhumati (1958). The day after his wedding, Ravi Varma (Kiran) is killed by his calculating wife Kamini (Garewal) on instructions from Sir Judas. Years later a rock singer, Monty (Rishi Kapoor), who is in love with Tina (Munim), is haunted by images of a woman killing a man. Eventually realising himself to be Varma’s reincarnation, he takes belated revenge on Kamini, now the queen of Ooty. The film had the electronic rock-music- inspired hit Om Shanti Om, performed on a stage resembling a giant gramophone record.
