Kati Patang is a 1970 Bollywood film directed by Shakti Samanta and starring Rajesh Khanna, Asha Parekh, and Prem Chopra. The movie is a romantic drama that revolves around Madhu, a young woman who is forced to marry a man she does not love. The movie begins with Madhu, played by Asha Parekh, attending her best friend's wedding. She meets her ex-boyfriend, Vijay (Rajesh Khanna), at the wedding and confronts him about why he left her without explanation. Vijay tells her that his father had died, and he had to return to his hometown and take over the family business. He never forgot about Madhu and hopes to rekindle their romance.

Madhu is hesitant to get involved with Vijay again, but he persists and eventually wins her heart. Just when things seem to be going well for the couple, Madhu's uncle arrives and announces that she has to marry someone else, as the groom's family had paid off their debts.

Madhu is heartbroken but agrees to marry the groom, Ranjit (Prem Chopra), as her uncle had already committed to the wedding. However, on her wedding night, Ranjit tells Madhu that he knows about her love for Vijay and that he will not force himself on her if she does not want to be with him.

Madhu is touched by Ranjit's gesture and begins to develop feelings for him. However, her happiness is short-lived as Vijay reappears in her life, and she is forced to choose between the two men she loves.

Kati Patang is a film that deals with themes of love, sacrifice, and second chances. The chemistry between Rajesh Khanna and Asha Parekh is palpable, and their performances reflect the emotions of their characters. Prem Chopra's portrayal of Ranjit is commendable, and he brings a degree of complexity to his character, which could have easily been a one-dimensional antagonist.

The movie's soundtrack is also noteworthy, with songs like "Yeh Sham Mastani" and "Pyaar Deewana Hota Hai" becoming instant classics. The combination of R.D. Burman's music and Kishore Kumar's vocals created an enchanting soundscape that complemented the film's romantic tone.

Kati Patang is a film that has stood the test of time and continues to be popular among fans of Bollywood cinema. Its themes and storytelling have influenced generations of filmmakers, and its songs are still played at weddings and parties across India. It is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys a good romantic drama and wants to experience the magic of Bollywood's golden era.
