Storyline

A young doctor returning home from abroad is stranded in a village as his plane develops trouble and crashes. He meets and falls in love with a beautiful local village girl, who happens to be the daughter of his blind host. The romance is not looked upon by the villagers, especially one particular villager who is courting her himself. He hatches a plot to drive the doctor out of the village and in the process defiles the girl's character. The lovers are separated and the doctor, due to a misleading event, believes his sweetheart to be dead and resigns himself to a dejected life and a loveless marriage. The girl, meanwhile, loses her father in a fire, and sets out in search of her separated lover. Written by Hrishi Dixit <hrishi@slb.com>

The most fascinating movie that I have ever seen in my life
3 February 2001 | by (Rawalpindi) – See all my reviews

I can say without any reservation that it is the very movie that has left a profound and deep-rooted impact and enchanting impression upon my mind. I have seen this movie for at least ten times but to my amazement I am cognizant of some people who have surpassed me in viewing this great movie. One of them told me that he had seen this movie for 131 times and that every time spellbound and his overwhelming enjoyment augmented his enthusiasm to see this movie again and again. Another acquaintance of mine proclaimed that he viewed this movie for more than 70 times and he was at a loss to understand what sort of magic and attraction was infused that he always achieved a novel kind of pleasure and inspiration out of this movie. In short, I am sure that "Tarana" is replete with beauty, art and aesthetics. It is mainly because of unique and marvelous acting of Dilip Kumar and Madhubala, apart from excellent music, production and direction of this great movie. It is, no doubt, the most outstanding and unforgettable movie, to say the least of it. Madhubala has always been my favorite heroin and I am obliged to pay a rich tribute to Madhubala in the form of an Urdu poem, "Yeh Salam-i- Shauq Hey Mera Madhubala Key Naam" .
