He lives in a palatial house with his wife, Zubeda, and son, Ahmad. When Ahmad grows up, Zubeda notices that he is spending too much time with women in their harem, and wants his father to get him involved in their business. Sheikh accordingly instructs Ahmad to collect all revenue, which he does so. A few days later, Sheikh is informed that Ahmad has been spending time with a friend named Farid, and is romantically involved with a dancing girl named Yasmin. A visibly upset Sheikh accordingly warns Ahmad to mend his ways, give up on Yasmin and return home, where he has planned his marriage with Nadira, the daughter of Amir Qasim.

Watch this movie to see Suresh, hero from 1950s and for its 3 good songs
10 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was recommended to see this movie by a movie buff, who besides owning a DVD store also has encyclopedic knowledge about Bollywood films especially old movies. Although I had to pay exorbitant money to buy this DVD, as it is a rare film, but it just met my expectation and didn't feel the pinch to pay the cost, as it had a hero unknown to me named Suresh, who has acted in a number of films one of them being Dulari in 1949. He also acted in two films in Pakistan in 1950s which could have been uncompleted projects before the partition, but came back and acted in films till 1971. He paired excellently with Vyjayantimala, in this movie. This movie had three immortal songs, the best being 'Mujpe ilzam bewafai hai' sung by Lata, tuned by C. Ramchander and lyrics by Jan Nisar Akhtar, others being 'Bechaiin nazar betaab jigar' by Talat Mehmood and a duet by Lata-Talat 'Tum apni yaad bhi dil'. The background of the story is Arabian as it happened in 1950-60, when there were number of films made in middle eastern landscape like Dilip Kumar featured 'Yahudi, but was not boring, as it got lifted by good music and actors. Those passionate about old songs, can watch this film.
