Great Music, colorful, corny special effects, subtle storyline
25 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first heard the music at my brother-in-lows house back in the late seventies, and thought it was very original. I have seen the newly re-mastered movie three times (in seven days) and I think the music has passed the test of time and is still exquisite. The story line is subtle and does not have the stereotypical endings of a Bollywood movie where everyone lives happily ever after. The dance sequences (long) are very colorful and superb (however one has to put the special effects in context and keep in mind that Navrang must have been one of the first color movies made in India).

Must see if you appreciate classical music and classical Indian dancing.
