Storyline

Nandkishore Sharma alias Nandu is born in the Sharma family. His mother tragically passes away, leaving him in the care of his father who decides to re-marry a woman named Kamla. Kamla is not very kind to Nandu, who then seeks love and solace with a neighbor named Pushpa, who looks after him, feeds him, and even sings lullabies to get him to sleep. This does not auger well with Kamla, who severely beats up Nandu whenever she finds out that he has gone to meet Pushpa. Then his parents decide to move to another town, and Nandu tearfully bids farewell to Pushpa, but her love for him remains in his heart forever. Years later, Nandu has grown up, his parents have passed away, his siblings are settled independently, and he himself is married. He takes a nostalgic journey to the same town where he used to reside as a child, and rents a room in the same locality. He asks around for a woman named Pushpa, hoping that a lot of people would remember her for her kindness and love. He is shocked to... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Must Watch Classic
8 June 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I don't know how I somehow missed Amar Prem when it first released in the early seventies. The music is of course, legendary.

I kept watching it in parts when it showed on TV but again never had the time to see the entire movie. I accomplished this today and I am glad I did. What a movie, certainly deserving of the classic tag.

I am not sure whether today's youngsters would relate to this typical dark Bengali drama of those times. I hope they do, for it is superbly depicted by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. Vinod Mehra was the only actor who did not do justice to his role but the veterans more than made up for it.

The pathos conveyed in this movie was a typical outcome of society mores of that time, perhaps still extant in parts of rural India. The poignancy remains long after the film ends.

I will not narrate the story line, this is a superb film worth watching more than once. For those who have not seen it yet, please do so.
