Storyline

Meet Pyarelal, a simple-minded, naive young man, orphaned at birth, living with a Muslim landlady, Fatima, who treats him like her son. When the police arrest Pyarelal on the charge of murder, no one really believes that this harmless man could harm anyone, leave alone kill. Their belief is shattered when Pyarelal openly admits in Court that he has indeed committed this crime, and demands capital punishment for it. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Long Boring Movie
10 January 2016 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

so after working for two exhausting weeks i took a couple of days off in which i decided to watch 2 classic movies as they are my favorite and i had Raj Kapoor in my mind i choose Awaara and Diwana because i never watched them before until now in Awaara it literally blew my mind really magnificent pure diamond piece of art

Unfortunately Diwana is a whole different story i could not last the whole movie i stopped almost after an hour and half (i actually decided to watch Parvarish another golden classic for him ) to describe Diwana as far as i watched in one sentence too old Raj Kapoor too young naive Saira Banu too repetitive predictable story so overall too long boring movie

if you want to watch something for Raj Kapoor pick from the list of golden classics as i always do from now on
