Wonderful Colour Classic of Early 60s
20 February 2009 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The thespian and versatile Dilip Kumar rules the movie with an enticing female lead support by Vijantimala. This cinema scope, Technicolor movie with a beautifully choreographed and classically filmed song with the historical Taj Mahal in the background is a feast for the eyes.

Although, the movie is not very serious or melodramatic, because the first one hour is just light comedy and adventure but subsequently, as the symbolic dirty politics of subcontinent takes shape, it lends Dilip to display his agonizing and emotionally charged acting prowess which is indeed commendable. Dilip can masterfully act as a light comedian, romantic lover, adventure seeking fellow as well as an honest politic leader ready to defy the machinations of the evil doers.

On the whole, it is a very interesting film, with good hit songs, nice screenplay and great acting by Dilip Kumar.
