The formidable Balraj Sahni is excellent as the elder of the two brothers, both who dote on their young sister Meena (Nanda). So is the vastly underrated Rehman, who stars as Shekar. Shyama plays Shobha, who contrives to separate Shekar from his siblings. And there is Mehmood. Here is in not a buffoon or a comedian but an important part of a plot and he puts in an amazing supporting performance. He is paired with Shubha Khote with whom he went on to do a lot many movies in the future. Nanda as the saccharine sweet Meena at times is the only over-the-top good girl in a cast full of believable characters. Shankar Jaikishen put come up with some very good music. Its a must watch.
