Storyline

Bombay-based Rajesh lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle with his parents, mom - a housewife and dad - a rather parsimonious businessman, named Amirchand. One day while walking on the beach, he comes across a beautiful blind girl named Shivani. He instantly falls in love with her. She also likes him, but understands that they cannot be married. Regardless of this, Rajesh asks his parents to permit him to marry her, to which his mother agrees, but his father refuses. Then Mr. Rai, Amirchand's friend, intervenes, he offers to pay for getting Shivani's eyes tested, and if she succeeds in getting her sight, then and only then can Amirchand permit his son to marry her. An eye specialist is consulted, who concludes that the only way Shivani can see is through the eyes of a dead donor. The question remains how long will it take for a donor to come forward, and if nothing happens, will Rajesh consent to marry someone of his father's choice? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Great family drama...
16 January 2007 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Possibly one of the best family-centred Hindi films ever made. Shakti Samanta has done it again! "Aradhana" (1969) was a jubilee hit, but "Anuraag" (1972) will always be a family favourite! Calcutta-based actress Maushumi Chatterjee really gave her all as the blind sculptor Shivani, while Rajesh Khanna, Ashok Kumar and Nutan made me weep buckets with their moving dialogues as well as their subliminal performances as a humble flower seller, a doting grandfather and a loving mother respectively.

Nevertheless, I strongly feel that the biggest credit should go to Lataji. I was captivated by her voice, as with so many other films, which she sang for. "Mera Raja, Beta Poocha, Ek Paheli" has a calming effect and it was extremely touching to see Anu (Nutan) singing it as she choked through her tears, fearing the worst for her ailing son Chandan. "Woh Kya Hai?" is yet another song by Lataji from this movie that I love. To me, it is a song of lovers.

In a nutshell, "Anuraag" (1972) is just one of those rare films that can be put into what Yash Chopra categorizes as a "wholesome movie". In short, it is a heart-rending family drama that deserves much praise...
