A trend was popular those days in which some important or dramatic scenes would be shot in colour and the rest in black and white. In this film, the title track Chaudhvin Ka Chand sequence got this chance. See more »

Classic Romantic Drama
27 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Chaudhvin Ka Chand Directed By Mohammed Sadiq & Produced By Guru Dutt Is Romance Drama.... Written By Saghir Usmani ....Screenplay By Abrar Alvi...Story Is About Three Friends Aslam,Nawab & Saiza ...Two Of The Friends (Aslam & Nawab)Fall In Love With The Same Girl Named Jamila...It Deals With Friendship, Love & Sacrifice ....

Guru Dutt As Aslam Does Fine...Waheeda Rehman As Jamila Looks Very Beautiful....Johny Walker As Saiza is Very Funny In Some Of The Scenes...Rehman As Nawab Gives One Of The Best Performance ...He Was A Great Actor....Others Are Fine....

Guru Dutt's Music Composer Of Earlier Films S. D. Burman Had Warned Him Not To Make Kagaz Ke Phool Which Resembled His Own Life. When Guru Dutt Insisted On Making The Film S.D.Burman Said That Would Be His Last Film With Guru Dutt. So The Music Was Composed By Ravi...Music Is Outstanding ...Especially The Award Winning Song "Chaudhvi Ka Chand Ho" By Rafi ...All The Songs Were Fine....

Overall A Great Movie...This Was The Most Commercially Successful Guru Dutt's Movie...
