Naukri is a 1978 Bollywood film directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. This Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s not so famous movie but critically acclaimed classic Naukri (1978) featuring Rajesh Khanna and Raj Kapoor together is set in the period 1944-1947. The basic idea of this film is based on the 1955 Tamil film Mudhal Thedi starring Sivaji Ganeshan and Anjali Devi but story and treatment is completely different and the other inspiration for this films was It's a Wonderful Life produced and directed by Frank Capra. The story features a person getting help of an angel after his death. The God Sent person makes the hero realize that when he was alive he was so important and loved by all around him but he couldn’t recognize it. Rajesh Khanna plays the man who meets the angel Raj Kapoor, after he commits suicide. The film was not well publicized before its release and being released at a time when multi-star films ruled the roost, this classic was a box office failure. But over the years it has been appreciated by the audience. In the Bollywood Guide Collections, critics gave the film 4 stars of 5. Wikipedia
