Storyline

Based on the ill-fated love story of Laila and Majnu, this version shows them as inseparable childhood sweethearts, and subsequently as each others lovers. They want to get married, but as their fathers' (Emir E Basra, and Emir E Yemen respectively) are sworn enemies of each other, they are not permitted to see other, leave alone get married. Separated from each other, they long and pine for each other. Kais (Majnu's real name) has forsaken everything and roams the streets with a beggars bowl, looking all over for his Laila. He finds her and their romance is rekindled. The authorities find Kais' longing for Laila unusual as he values her love above that of Allah, he is declared insane, and people are encouraged to stone him to death. He survives and Kais' dad and mom fall at the feet of Laila's dad and beg him to permit this marriage = he reluctantly agrees - on the condition that Kais undergo a test to prove that he is not insane. Kais fails in the test, and Laila's marriage is ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Too Many Cooks....
15 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

If you have too many cooks (in case of directors more than one is too many) that spoils the dish. Frankly both the directors have their own styles. K Asif died many years ago, so this was a half cooked dish on unlit stove, cooked later by KC Bokadia (who had incedently more experience as financiar).

Sanjeev Kumar died while movie was not complete so they had to use the stills (of Sanjeev Kumar) and Nimmi was long forgotten as heroine.

But this movie has great acting - very good photography - good music (which was 2 decade too old when movie was released). This is perhaps one of very few movies where you have all great playback of 50's assambled together and great Mukesh ended up singing in chorus.

This movie was Nostaligic to me, but on the story I think Rishi Kapoor did a more entertaining movie, though Sanjeev Kumar had much deeper role for Kais.

Overall mnixed stuff, old movie buffs like me can enjoy!
