A social drama about a child brought up by courtesan and her struggle to shed off the past.
11 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gomoti Ki Kinare directed by Swaan Kumar Tak is Meena Kumari's last film, in fact the film was released after her death on March 31, 1972. She gave a spectacular performance as loving mother to a child and with the help of a very good friend Nekiram played by Agha brought the boy up to become the chief engineer of a construction firm headed by Gopal Das played by Rehman. The movie has a string social theme, which is whether the son of a courtesan can be the son-in-law of a reputed business man in our society. It is a good movie to watch specially for Meena Kumari who can master such roles with her sober beauty and a very matured actor as the "tragedy queen". Good support was provided by some veteran actors like Agha, Rehman, I.S. Johar, Mumtaz and Shyama who played their individual roles admireabley. As I understand from reading Meena Kumari's bio that she was very sick near the end of her life, I was amazed by her acting prowess and bravery of playing this role at a time so much near to her death. She has my long salute. I rated the movie as eight out of ten.
