i've been in a Raj Kapoor mood lately.first of all i consider the man my mentor because everything that he's done,i want to do.i eventually want to be and actor/director for my films.i want great music for my films.i want people to appreciate my work.
on with Barsaat.this film has been done so well.forget the Barsaat of 1995 and 2005.if you want to see a film called Barsaat,than you must go all the way back to 1949.when the credits show at the beginning of the movie it says Starring Nargis before it says Raj Kapoor and i have to say that it is true.this is Nargis's film.she's acted brilliantly.she's the life and soul of this movie.Nargis is Reshma.you can see it in her eyes,her expression,and everything she says.this is probably her best performance to date.i hope eventually someone will put this film into color.
Raj Kapoor did a fabulous job acting,directing,and producing this film.this is amongst his best performances.you can tell in the scene when him and Nargis go on their first boat ride.Shankar Jaikishan's music is up to par.
the only fault in this film is the fact that there's a song every 15 to 20 minutes.too many songs.otherwise a brilliantly made film.
