Storyline

Nina is the rich and spoiled daughter of a rich businessman. One day while horse-riding she loses control of her horse and is rescued by a young man named Dilip. Dilip instantly takes a liking to her and starts to frequently visit her house where he entertains her with his singing along with Nina's friend Sheela. Nina's father dislikes this and tries to make Nina realize that spending so much time with Dilip is not wise as Dilip could misunderstand her friendship with him for love. On the day of Sheela's birthday party, Dilip realizes he has fallen in love with Nina and tries to tell her. However tragedy strikes when Nina's father dies of a heart attack that same day and this leaves Nina devastated. Dilip comforts her and tries to reveal his true feelings for her but is shocked by the arrival of Nina's fiancé Rajan who has returned from London. Dilip is shocked that Nina never mentioned that she was already engaged and in love with Rajan. Rajan and Nina eventually get married and ... Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Lata Mangeshkar's career also got a tremendous boost from this film. Naushad gave Lata a chance to voice Nargis (the main lead) instead of Shamshad Begum (who voiced a supporting lead), who was a leading playback singer of the time. All the songs sung by Lata became an instant hit and Kapoor decided to have her as the main voice for the female lead in his forthcoming movie Barsat. See more »

great picture!
12 April 2001 | by (ny) – See all my reviews

if you watch this movie you will see what is wrong with indian movies today. this film is extremely smart with excellent performances(especially by dilip kumar, he steals the show). the songs are so mesmerizing, it really is difficult to compare or describe them in words. the entire film is loaded with symbolism and poetry. it is a true masterpiece. people who find movies such as "kuch kuch hota hai", "mohabbatein", or any other super hit contemporary movies to be good films, will not understand this one, it is probably too intelligent for them. if you find shahrukh khans tendency to over act and salman khans inability to act entertaining... do not bother.
