Parichay (Hindi: परिचय; translation: introduction) is a 1972 Indian film directed by Gulzar, based on a Bengali novel, Rangeen Uttarain by Raj Kumar Maitra. Pran heads the cast with Jaya Bhaduri, Jeetendra, Asrani, Sanjeev Kumar and Geeta Siddharth, and also A K Hangal, Leela Mishra and also a special appearance by Vinod Khanna. Pran, Sanjeev Kumar, Jaya Bhaduri and Jeetendra have been critically acclaimed for their performances.[1]


The film is about gap between a Grandfather with values and his five grandchildren. How Ravi succeeds in removing the misunderstanding between the children and how a bridge is built between the Grand father and his grandchildren is worth watching. Ravi (Jeetendra) is sent to tutor five grandchildren of Rai Saheb (Pran), the eldest of whom is a young woman named Rama (Jaya Bhaduri). Their father Nilesh (Sanjeev Kumar), a talented musician, died not long after his wife's death, so the children were sent to live with their paternal grandfather. The children have driven away their previous tutors and in turn, often get corporal punishment from their great-aunt. After Ravi comes, the children play tricks on him too, but his gentle manner and patient methods win them over. He and Rama fall in love, and the end credits indicate that there will be a wedding between them.
