    The movie is very nice and its refreshing to see dev anand and zeenat aman in an Indo-Filipino movie about an evil princess and opium smuggling. Zeenat aman is looking absolutely gorgeous. Anybody who is a fan of dev anand should see this movie for sure. It is a nice thriller . The movie also stars the gorgeous Kiều Chinh who was a very famous Vietnamese American actress best known for her role in The Joy Luck Club. Also known as Passport to Danger (1970), the James Bond-inspired crime thriller was directed by Lamberto V Avellana. It was distributed by 20th Century Fox.Renowned cinematographer Fali Mistry, who lensed such Indian classics as Guide,shot The Evil Within.Overall a nice movie and worth a watch.

    From the get-go, you know this impossibly obscure Filipino action flick is going to be something special. Opening with a series of clumsily choreographed fights and murders involving a fat bald man, the film also scores thanks to its brooding, barely there 'theme song' crooned by 'star' Rod Perry, an African-American actor later best known for a recurring role on the popular seventies television series SWAT. When the fat bald guy puts on a fez, you know you're going to be in psychotronic heaven. Did I mention this insane film also features the legendary Indian matinée idol Dev Anand and the future star of Wayne Wang's Joy Luck Club, Vietnamese beauty Kieu Chinh? Though produced in 1970, The Evil Within looks and plays like one of those goofy Bond rip-offs so popular in the mid-60s--and that, of course, is a very good thing. Don't miss this if the opportunity presents itself!
