Storyline

Raju is his real name but due to his unhealthy and unkempt manner of living, he is called "Junglee" by everyone in his village, all save for ex-convict Ustad Anwar who has served time for murder, and his father. When Raju's dad passes away, the local money-lender gives him an ultimatum to either re-pay the loan or he will take possession of his house and land. Raju decides to hitch a ride to Bombay, get a job, save some money, buy a couple of bullocks, till his land and re-pay the money-lender. No one gives him a ride, so he stows away in the back of a fruit-laden truck, which has one more stowaway, a run-away gypsy named Tarna. Both of them meet, fall in love, promise to help and marry each other. After the truck ride, they board a goods train bound for Bombay, but during the journey both get separated. A few months Raju finds out that Tarna is now known as Meenakshi, a movie actress. When he goes to meet her, he is told by a man named Ashok, that Tarna is his wife. A bewildered Raju...

An underrated movie.
6 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is an underrated movie. Good story, nice performances, especially that of Sharmila Tagore and Balraj Sahni and Laxmi Chhaya. A rather simple story about a loving couple who come to big city in search of work but get separated. The boy, becomes a Taxi Driver and girl, an actress.

Great Balraj Sahni, cast against type in a somewhat negative part of a filmmaker who turns good in the end. This is a story of small dreams that clashed with heartlessness of big city. Good music adds to the ambiance but the end is somewhat otherworldly yet believable.

Laxmi Chhaya remained a gem of an actress whose talent was never fully explored. She was such a natural, for more of her, watch 'Mera Gaon Mera Desh'. She is electrifying.

Worth watching.
