B&W mystery with rebirth theme!
8 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This 1966 B&W film is actually very good mystery movie, with supernatural/rebirth theme..It stars Prithviraj Kapoor, Biswajeet and Sharmila Tagore.

The theme is very well treated and watching old actors like the veteran Prithviraj Kapoor as archaeological professor, Gentleman actor Biswajeet's restrained role, young and cute Mumtaz and delectable Sharmila is haunting songs clad in ancient get-up is indeed a welcome change to present day brash and crude commercial films.. The story about a lost kingdom underground, and a dancer whose spirit come alive from her statue are all handled with care and credibility

The setting is excellent, the performances and screenplay are praiseworthy..It is a sweet enchanting mystery film with last scene revelation coming as a surprise to even seasoned minds like mine... a B& W classic this...
