Storyline

Lalita lives with her widowed mother in a small village in India. One day while traveling by road, she is stranded, and a young man named Raja Babu comes to her assistance. Both fall in love with each other. When she informs her mother about her love for Raja, she is met with strong opposition, as her mother knows that Raja Babu is already married and has a son. She also reminds Lalita about her marriage with Diwan. When Lalita meets with Raja, he admits to her that he is not Raja but his real name is Rajan Ram Bahadur, but refuses to divulge any other information to her. She decides that she will have nothing to do with him. The mystery deepens when Pran Bahadur, the step-brother of Raja Babu returns and wants to confront the young man who has taken over Raja's identity, with results that will change the lives of everyone around them forever.

a Rajesh starter
30 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Maryada is one of the initial films signed by the Super Star of all times Rajesh Khanna and he is paired with Mala Sinha. Raajumar is there in the movie too. In fact RaajKumar has the lead role with Rajesh Khanna playing the second fiddle. But Rajesh Khanna leaves his mark in this movie and ends up giving a good tough time to RaajKumar. Mala Sinha's role gets subdued between the two great actors. The music by Kalyajni Anandji is great and there are good numbers of Kishore Kumar and Mukesh which were picturized on Rajesh Khanna. It is a must see for Rajesh Khanna fans as he performs well in front of two senior actors- RaajKumar and Mala Sinha.
