Storyline

Rupa (Zeenat Aman) grew up being cursed as "unlucky" in the village she was born in. Her mother died during childbirth. Then a kitchen accident leaves half her face disfigured. This is an artistic exploration of beauty and disfigurement, society's values and more importantly how a girl, teenager and a bride was treated during the times. Rajeev (Shashi Kapoor) the stereotype male engineer falls in love with the Rupa who has a divine singing voice, and the unscarred left cheek. When he sees the scarred cheek, after marriage, he heads off into a tizzy and continues nightly dalliance with his mistress - the beautiful cheek. Little does he realize that his wife and mistress are two faces of the same person. Written by MG Gopalan

Classic Indian film fare with worldwide appeal
5 July 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

SATYAM SHIVAM SUNDARAM features Zeenat Aman's most compelling performance. Stripped of the usual glamour girl trappings, Zeenat's heartfelt portrayal of Roopa (the village girl - scarred by a tragic accident & scorned by society) is simply radiant. To my ears, the soundtrack also displays musical directors Laxmikant-Pyarelal and the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, at their zenith. Despite the structural shortcomings like the engineer's (Shasi Kapoor) pitiful powers of perception, SATYAM SHIVAM SUNDARAM remains mesmerizing. It is classic Indian film fare with worldwide app
