Storyline

Lucknow-based Nawabzada Aslam lives a wealthy lifestyle along with his dad, Bakar, and mom. He writes poems under the pen name of Raj Lakhnavi, and is a close friend of Iqbal. One day he meets and falls in love with Salma Banarsi, a Banaras-based Courtesan. When his parents arrange his marriage with his foreign-returned cousin, Mumtaz, he informs them that he loves Salma and incurs their displeasure so much so that his dad shoots him, and he gets hospitalized. When he recovers fully he is shocked to find that Salma has not only accepted Iqbal as her lover, but has also taken a lot of money and jewelry from his mother. He takes to alcohol in a big way and swears to exact vengeance against Salma by getting married to Mumtaz and forcing Salma to sing and dance at his wedding. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A correction
6 August 2007 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

I wanna correct the comment poster before me. The movie Salma is not a remake of the Pakistani film Anjuman, but it is a remake of the 70's Pakistani film called Suraiyya Bhopali starring Rani. Anjuman has a totally different plot. Plus this movie has copied the song "Kaahe Bethe ho" from the Original Movie. Plus I haven't seen Salma completely but I have seen quite a few scenes and the original movie and I did find some resemblances. For instance the ending of the movie are both alike as such the song "Kaahe Betho Ho" as I mentioned earlier. But maybe I may be wrong so if anyone has a different opinion, I am willing to debate.
