Army Captain Anand at the battle front cannot wait to get back to his beloved wife Mita. But he has a sad duty to perform before he can do so. This Dev Anand vehicle is a sentimental tear-jerker of a date movie complete with incredible coincidences and a double role. Written by
A very beautiful movie. Though this movie is about war and its effects you are actually moved by the message of non violence in this movie. The story is again a sort of Shakespearean comedy of errors. Well the plot is forced and this movie depends upon lot of forced coincidences. The inimitable Dev plays dual role in this movie. The heroines Sadhana and Nanda are very likable and have done a good job. Very strangely the entire length of this movie is tinged with a mood of sadness and nostalgia. How such an effect has been brought about is a topic worthy of research.
And above all, this movie is a musical bonanza. Right from the word go composer Jaidev scores. The title music is so haunting and a wee bit sad. Jaidev as usual relies mostly on Indian classical music to bring about a haunting effect. The songs and their celluloid presentation lingers on in your heart and mind long after the movie is over. The bhajan song "Allah tero naam" is a trend setter. A very curious fact about these songs from the golden age of Bollywood is that almost all of them are immortal. The same cannot be said of the current Bollywood songs. In a nut shell, a thoroughly enjoyable fare.
