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.

Trivia

Raj Kapoor tried to cast Dilip Kumar and himself again in another movie (Sangam) but both had become huge stars by then and it didn't work out. The role written for Dilip Kumar was eventually played by Rajendra Kumar and Sangam went out to become a super duper hit. See more »

Andaz(1949)
5 May 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The first time i saw this film i could not believe it was made in 1949!To someone fed on the useless,clueless and rotten remakes in the 1970s it was an eye-opener because we considered Dilip Kimar to belong to be before our times!!This is a superb film directed in masterly style with a great script,music and songs.Glossy photography lends it a poetical feeling.To this day there have been contradictions on the message of the film.It all comes down to our ancient trait of keeping silent when we should have spoken our mind!The acting of Nargis and Dilip Kumar is so deep that the viewer is misled into confusion.Rajkapoor is also great in his role.Very good.But the film belongs to Dilip.As a romantic hero his body language,silent facial expressions and style have had no equal in the Indian film history.All this is astounding for an actor who had been in films 4-5 years at that time.A remarkable actor and Mehboob Khan is a super director.Ther have many,many variations on this film but it will always standout as the original even in a hundred years.
