Trivia

The film was made in a time when Technicolor was just introduced in Indian film making. 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 »

The original love triangle . . .
19 December 2000 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

This movie can be declared as the effective starter of love triangles in Hindi movies. There have been an unbelievable number of lift offs of this story since then. However it does not in any way reduce the repeat value of this movie. Guru Dutt shows us how to handle a theme of love that could have only a tragic ending. Vahida Rahman looks most beautiful and the title song by Rafi deserves all the acclaim it received.
