A well acted family drama with very strong performance by Sahani, Nargis and Kumari Naaz
11 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the later part of her career Nargis did a few movies with different actors and Lajwanti is one of them with Nargis paired with Balraj Sahani. The story is about a happy family of Lawyer Nirmalo Kumar, his lovely wife Kabita ( Nargis ) and their baby daughter Renu. World falls apart when Nirmal's younger brother Sunil starts a portrait session with Kabita and eventually Nirmal throws her out of the house because of suspicion of an affair. The acting performance of Balraj Sahani and Nargis is commendable specially Nargis displayed a very restrained woman in distress but never really broke down and took things at her own terms. When they get together again and Nargis gets introduced to now grown up Kumari Naaz , we see a superb performance by Kumari Naaz as the angry young daughter refusing to accept Nargis as her real mother. After she did a splendid role in Raj Kapoor's Boot Polish, I think this is the movie where she displayed her best acting performance. She was just marvelous as the young uncompromising Renu. The music though from the master S.D. Burman did not click that much and can be said as so so. Radhakishan was excellent as the side kick. Sachin Bhowmick's story and the script is admirable. The movie is enjoyable with good story and camera work.
