One of the last Raj Kapoor classics, Bobby is the love story of two tender young hearts caught in the flush of first love. Raj (Rishi Kapoor), eighteen, just out of school and the only son of wealthy parents, is the lonely, poor little rich boy who finds companionship and love and comfort in the company of Bobby (Dimple Kapadia), a sweet, innocent sixteen. But this path of true love is strewn with too many thorns - social disparity, wealth and adults who have long forgotten the sweet agony of love. Bobby is the story of how these two young lovers are pitted against a world that no longer understands how love can conquer everything and triumphs.
Bobby is a milestone in hindi cinema for several reasons. It saw the debut of Dimple Kapadia, one of Indian cinemas finest actresses, it became an icon for young lovers and its songs (Hum Tum Ik Kamre Mein and Jhoot Bole Kauva Kate) scored by Laxmikant Pyarelal became evergreen hits, capturing the urgent, sweet innocence of young love.
