Good Movie
2 November 2010 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The story is average and it is based on joint family values. The acting by Sunil Dutt and Om Prakash is significantly good but Nautan steals the show with her graceful, resilient and evocative charisma. The touchstone of this film is the song "Tumhi mere mandir" which is beautifully sung by Lata Mangeshker and remarkably acted by Nautan. The sweet and soothing music as composed by Ravi Shankar adds glory to its rhythmic intensity. There are certain latently vibrant feelings that accompany the flow of the song as it progresses and Nautan seems to be so comfortable in exuding the required talent that it seems that no other actress could have risen beyond her remarkable performance.
