Ittefaq is a 1969 Hindi movie produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by his brother Yash Chopra. The film stars Rajesh Khanna, Nanda, Bindu, Madan Puri, Iftekhar and has music by Salil Choudhury. The film became a "semi-hit" at the box office.[1] It is a remake of the British film Signpost to Murder (1965) starring Joanne Woodward.[2] It was probably the second Bollywood film that did not have any songs in it. What was remarkable was that a previous production from the same production house i.e. B.R.Films, namely Kanoon, made in 1960 was also a song-less film. Another common feature of both Kanoon and 'Ittefaq' was that in both these song-less films Salil Chowdhary was the Music Director.[3]

Plot Summary[edit]

During the trial, he is sent to a mental hospital. He escapes from there and ends up at Rekha's (Nanda) house and holds her at gunpoint. He wants to spend the night there due to heavy storm. However, police are searching for him and they visit the house, as do many others. Dilip is able to evade all visitors by threatening Rekha.
