Anand was a well-known, well-respected doctor. One dark and stormy night, he met a young woman at the side of the road. He gave her a ride. She asked to be dropped off at a graveyard. There, she disappeared singing a love song, "Naina Barse." Anand began to hear that song more and more often. His mother arranged a marriage for him. His bride was the very woman he dropped off at the graveyard! Woh kaun thi? (Who was she?) Written by Hemal Sampat

Watch if for Sadhana
6 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I was not much fan of yesteryears Indian movies before seeing this movie. Man this movie is so captivating, it just suck you in.. The very first scene when the protagonist(Manoj Kumar) gives lift to Sadhana, and the dialogues that goes in that journey is pretty cool.. Little flaws of editing or tilt screen is easily forgotten when you consider this is made in 50s. for me movie is all bout the the leading actress Sadhana.. She luks so natural and ravishing... now I understand what was all the fuzz about Sadhana's Cut.. Watching her on screen is simply mesmerizing. If you like this you will surely watch the trilogy of Wo kaun thi, Mera saaya and anita.. I am a big fan of Sadhana so i wud recommend this movie to everyone.. 8/10 easily.
