Storyline

Kusum Rai lives a wealthy lifestyle in scenic Kashmir with her widowed dad, Basant. Her dad had helped his friend's widow, her son, Sushil Verma, and daughter, Munni, overcome many financial challenges, and had also paid for his medical education so that he can grow up to not only support his family, but also marry Kusum. Kusum and Sushil do get married and re-locate back to Sushil's house which is attached to Malhotra Hospital where he works. Shortly thereafter disagreements begin when Kusum is not allowed to have her way, and also when she feels that Sushil is not being attentive towards her. Things escalate to such an extent that Kusum returns to live with her dad. Several months later, she is informed that Sushil is seriously ill, she returns - only to find that Sushil is in love with a nurse named Karuna. Watch what an angered Kusum does to keep Sushil all to himself. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Watch it for sheer Meena Kumari, Kishor Sahu and Shankar Jaikishan magic
24 March 2014 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

A marvelous musical love story with duties of medical professionals in the backdrop. Some of the scenes like 1) Karuna telling her roommate about her love, 2) Sushil & Karuna at a railway station and 3) a scene when on Diwali night, Sushil's mother regrets not having a daughter in law like Karuna, have been conceived and enacted so profoundly that it makes you to think what a movie it is. Meena Kumari has performed her heart out. Once the movie ends, it would make you think no other actress could have been a better choice for Karuna's role. Raj Kumar and Om Prakash are treat to watch. Shankar Jaikishan's music is unforgettable with songs; 1) Dil Apna Aur Preet Parayi, 2) Mera Dil Ab Tera O Sajna, 3) Azeeb Dastan Hai Ye, 4) Andaz Mera Mastana, 5) Sheesha-e-Dil Itana Na, 6) Itani Badi Mehfil, 7) Jaane Kahan Gayi. Important to note that Kishor Sahu was nominated for Best Director at Filmfare Awards 1961.
