An emotional film
5 February 2001 | by (England, Bradford) – See all my reviews

Manoj Kumar directed and starred in this 1972 film, the film revolves around the relationship of a mute son and his father. Shor means noises which is emphasised through out the film. Manoj Kumar gives a great performance as the father of the boy, for whom he tries to raise money for his son to have an operation so that he can talk. The ending is emotional and unexpecting. There are many great songs in the film. There is also a bit of romance in the film, the female lead is played by Jaya Badhuri. This is a sad film but it has an excellent story line which makes a change.
