Storyline

School-going Chandrabhan lives a poor lifestyle with his widowed mom in a small town in India, and has a childhood sweetheart named Lata, who is the daughter of the wealthy Deputy. Chandrabhan is heartbroken when Lata leaves town, and he has only a time-piece left with him as a token of their friendship. Years later, Chandrabhan has grown up, and has found employment in a guitar and musical instrument repair shop run by the owner and his friend, Prakash. Chandrabhan, a frequent reader of poetry, is fascinated by the poems of Renuka Devi, and longs to meet her. He does get to meet her, only to find out that the woman in reality is her friend, Basanti, who was impersonating her, as she had fallen in love with him, though he has no similar feelings for her. He does get to meet Renuka Devi, and is pleasantly surprised when he finds out that she is none other than Lata herself. Before Chandrabhan could plan anything else, he finds out that Prakash is getting engaged to Lata; Prakash's ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A love-triangle romance
26 August 2006 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

A love-triangle romance with reformist overtones set partly in Bombay. Impoverished hero Chander (Surendra) and rich heroine Laila (Nurjehan) are childhood sweethearts separated when Lailas parents move to Bombay. Later, Chander moves there when his rich friend Prakash (Zahur Raja) finds him work in a musical instruments shop. By then, Lata has become a famous poetess going by the name of Renu and is engaged to Prakash. Latas friend Basanti (Suraiya) falls in love with Chander but he remains true to his childhood girl and walks away into the sunset (with Basanti running after him). Although Mehboob made other triangular romances (Hum Tum Aur Woh, 1938; Najma, 1943 etc.), this film started his investigations of patriarchy, shown as masquerading under eternal values (of Anokhi Ada, 1948; Andaz 1949). Musical hits including Nurjehans best-known songs, e.g. Awaz de kahan hai (with Surendra) and the solos Mere Bachpan Ke Saathi Jawan Hai Mohabbat
