14 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Noorie (1979) is a very cute, romantic film produced by Yash Chopra.The film is directed by Manmohan Krishna. The film starred Poonam Dhillon playing the title role and Farouqe Shaikh in the lead.

Noorie tells the story of a girl called 'Noorie' ( Poonam Dhillon) who lives in the valleys with her father (Ifthikar), and her dog Khairoo, she falls in love with Yusuf (Farouqe Shaikh). Yusuf is eager to marry her, but Noorie tells him to go and ask her father for her hand in marriage. Yusuf takes Noorie's advice and makes his desires known to her father. The Ghulam Nabi agrees and Noorie and Yusuf's wedding preparations begin. While preparations are being made for Noorie and Yusuf's wedding , another villager Bashir Khan (Bharat Kapoor) takes a strong liking to Noorie and decides he wants her for himself, he approaches Noorie's father and tells him his intentions, but Noorie's father disagrees. A very angry Bashir Khan then arranges the murder of Ghulam Nabi, who gets killed by Bashir Khan's men. Following his death, Noorie and Yusuf decide to suspend their marriage, a few months later the marriage preparations are back on, however a few days before the marriage Bashir Khan, who happens to be Yusuf's boss sends him on an errand out of town. While Yusuf is out of town Bashir Khan goes over to Noorie's house and then rapes her.What will happen to Noorie, will she be able to leave with herself after the rape? What will be the Villager's reaction to Noorie? Will Yusuf still be willing to marry her? Will Bashir Khan's evil deeds ever be found out? For all these answers watch Noorie.

The film had soulful music by Khayyam and wonderful songs rendered by Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Pamela, Jagjit Kaur, Anwar and Mahendra Kapoor. The songs include:-

* Aaja Re (O Noorie) * Aashiq Ho To Aisa * Chori Chori Koi Aaye * Qadar Toone Na Jani * Uske Bhed Nirale
