A light movie.

8/10

This movie is a light Muslim story with good songs and a very good star cast.Sunil Dutt gives a gr8 performance in the role of a simple Muslim poet who falls in love with the voice of a girl.Meena Kumari gives an awesome performance in the role of a girl who loses her voice just when she is a about to hear a good news.Rahman's role however does not suit him since his image which he has had because of his roles in Pyaasa and Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam,of a serious man,has been changed to a funny and a coward lover.Moreover the reason it does not get 10 is the flaw in its turning point.The turning point is a light one and so seems kinda funny.Overall the movie is very good and a light one.

Standard fare, but well-made and shairi thrown in

10/10

A very typical Hindi film story, which works not because of the story but because how it is told and performed. Powerful performances by all. Sunil Dutt, Prithviraj Kapur, Meena Kumari, Rajinder Nath, the lady who plays the hero's sister, and the the guy who played Sahib in Sahib, Biwi aur Ghulam. All do well. Tight. No wastage. Good songs. Good transition to the sombre as well.

Muslim families in Agra. Juvenile-ish Sunil Dutt discovers what is love, god and life in the course of the film. Meena Kumari is hot and stylish, and gets a chance to recite poetry. Healthy dose of comedy, romance, tragedy. Lots of shairi and mushairas. I think all the songs are different parts of the same ghazal by Sahir Ludhianvi. It is to the credit of Madan Mohan that the same ghazal or parts of it have been performed in such different moods.

An age that has gone.
