Storyline

Young Shamu lives with his widowed mom, and works in the orchard of Daulatram Rai. He is very friendly with Mala, Daulatram's only child, and they often go horse-riding. While riding one day, Mala and Shamu get thrown down, and Mala is injured. Her enraged & snobbish dad fires Shamu and forbids Mala to ever see him again. He and his mom leave to re-locate elsewhere. On the way, his mom passes away, leaving a grieving Shamu in the care of young Champa and her uncle. A depressed Shamu runs away, straight into a sand-storm, and loses his vision. Blind and dependent, Shamu is looked after by Champa and her uncle. Years later, the uncle has passed away, but Shamu still lives with Champa and makes a living by singing. Champa adores him, but Shamu is unable to get Mala out of his mind. Dr. Kishore hears him sing, is pleased, and offers to restore his vision free of cost. When Shamu regains his sight, his only thought is to find Mala and re-kindle their love. Will fate bring his sweetheart to... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Simple story of triangular love , with brilliant performances from Dilip Kumar, Ashok Kumar and Nargis
7 February 2003 | by (Dhaka Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Rendered blind as a child Shamu can only remember the girl who was his childhood companion. As an adult when he sees her, thanks to the doctor(played by Ashok Kumar)he is overwhelmed. But Mala(Nargis) quite naturally has no recollection of him. She is now waiting to marry Ashok Kumar, who is ready to sacrifice his love for Dilip. The emotions are brilliantly portraid by all three. The film remains memorable for Dilip's performance as a blind man. The movie was mentioned in Vikram Seth's Suitable Boy.
