Storyline

Kewal (Raj Kapoor) reluctantly accepts his father (Kamal Kapoor)'s demands to continue the family tradition by studying law and become a successful lawyer just like him. However due to a lack of interest in becoming a lawyer and more interest in opening up his own theatre company, he fails his law exams and is thrown out of the house by his father. Luckily he finds a patron of the arts Rajan, (Premnath) who is the owner of a closen down theatrical company. A childhood romance with a girl named Nimmi haunts his fantasies, and Kewal searches for her in other women, even renaming them after his former sweetheart. With a theater, a play and a feminine image in his mind, he discovers a woman made homeless by Partition (Nargis) and the play of his dreams can at last be written and performed.

The First RK Film
3 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the first film under the RK Films banner.this is also the first film that Raj Kapoor directed.he did an excellent job with everything.when watching the film you can't tell that this is Raj Kapoor's first directed film.for example the opening sequence when he's walking upstairs.the camera angles that were used were brilliantly done.also everything was done sensitively.Nargis has given a performance of a lifetime in this film.you can feel her pain.Raj Kapoor in my opinion given his best performance here.you could sense his anger,love,confusion,just everything he was feeling.you could see it in his eyes.all in all a great film with excellent music.

10/10
