Very Good Plot
23 February 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The movie is the story about a hilly village, Shyamnagar. One of the most important things in the movies of 50's and 60's was that they shown strong characters and each and every word that the characters spoke shown a sense of strength. Madhumati is no exception. The direction is excellent. Bimal Roy was on his road to be a legend after Madhumati. Dilip Kumar and Vijayantimala played another great roles after their success in Devdas. Music was another strength of the movie. The songs "Suhana Safar" and all others created history. Pran also played his role exceptionally well. The movie is recommended for everyone.

The main drawbacks of the movie were:

1. The scene in which Dilip Kumar saves a child from the horse of Pran was really poor. Dilip Kumar comes from a long way and it is shown that the child was very near to the coming horse, so it was totally impossible for someone to come from 200 meters and save a child.

2. The voice "Aaja Re Pardesi" of Vijayantimala that comes from the hills creates a sense of mystery in Dilip Kumar but there was nothing like that. In fact, it should have been shown like a girl singing in hills but it looks as if a spirit is singing.

3. When Pran invites Dilip Kumar to make his portrait, he refuses in less than a second, but he should have waited for at least two seconds. Then he says that he is busy but he was enjoying the scenery. So when Pran says that yes he is seeing how much busy he is, he does not show any kind of expression that may show that if Dilip Kumar is busy, and he has no time for making my portrait, then what is he doing there at the moment.
