Prem Pujari is a 1970 Bollywood production written and directed by Dev Anand, one of the original matinee idols of Indian cinema, who also plays the lead role of Ramdev Bakshi / Peter Andrews / Yik Tok. Ramdev (Dev Anand) is a decorated army officer who has lost a leg during the Pakistan war. When he is court-marshaled he disappears and loses touch with his love, Suman (Waheeda Rehman), who he intended to marry. He is later captured by the Chinese and begins to work for them as a double agent. Suman in the meantime has been crowned Miss India, and on her travels encounters Ramdev. However, he is now Peter Andrews, and denies any knowledge of the man Ramdev. The film is known particularly for the quality of the music, which featured many duets and group pieces. A number of the songs were based in Punjabi folk music and had lyrics by renowned poets, and several became major hits, including Rangeela Re and Shokhiyon mein.moreless
