Dr. Dharmesh (Rajendra Kumar) and Sita (Meena Kumari) are in love, and hope to marry on Dharmesh's return from abroad. When Dharmesh returns, he is devastated to find that Sita has married someone else. He then decides to devote the rest of his life at a cancer clinic. One of his patients is Ram (Raaj Kumar), who is critically ill, and has to be operated upon. Things progress well, until Dharmesh meets Ram's wife - none other than Sita. Dharmesh now has to battle with his conscience, and his medical ethics to save Ram or to let him pass away, so that he can marry Sita. Written by rAjOo (

A heart touching movie with finest performances
28 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dil Ek Mandir is a heart touching movie.I would proudly say that every character performs to a great extent.The songs are like honey which can even make a hard heart a soft one.Meena Kumari's one of truly finest performance which you cannot forget till your death. Rajendra Kumar touches the hearts of audiences at the climax scenes.Raaj Kumar is best as supporting actor by delivering Dialogues in a finest way.Every scene touches the heart which can even make you lose your sleep even after watching it.When I watched recently I felt why nobody told me about this movie.Really the climax scene brings tears in your eyes.Really one of heart touching love story with finest performances.
