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.

Maryada(1971)
9 April 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

During the seventies there were several films like this one with no head or tail.An actor of Raaj Kumar's calibre is wasted here and Mala Sinha's pairing with Khanna is embarrassing.The story is rubbish.Could have been better with a little more imagination.The script is not too bad and the outdoor scenery is superb.Raaj Kumar and Pran are miscasted as well as Mala Sinha though their acting is good.The film begins to flounder with the entry of Khanna.His looks make him more the younger brother of Ms.Sinha and Raaj Kumar.As for the music one or two tunes are above average.With his distinctive style of acting Kumar could have made more impact had the story been realistic.He looks stupid in the village costumes.Pran excels as always.One of the worst Raaj Kumar films i have ever seen.
