Radha (Suchitra Sen), a nurse at a mental hospital, is asked by the head doctor (Pahari Sanyal) to try an experimental technique with a somewhat amnesiac, depressed inmate (Vasant Choudhury) - she has to pretend to be in love with him to bring him back to normal. Remade in Hindi as Khamoshi with Waheeda Rehman playing the Suchitra Sen character, this film still stands the test of time. Performances are good. Written by Joyojeet Pal

A heartbreaker & tearjerker par excellence!!!
10 July 2009 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

If you are a Hindi movie buff you will most probably have watched 'Khamoshi'. In case you didn't know, this is the movie 'khamoshi' was inspired from. In all fairness both are excellent!I challenge anybody (not those without a heart and a soul)to watch this and not cry!!It will take some doing! Suchitra Sen plays a nurse in an mental asylum who falls for her patient. That tells you that everything doesn't end up 'happily everafter' for her.Man!How much pain can one take! Suchitra as usual is simply superb. You should see her expressions when the song 'Ei raat tomar amar' plays. That says it all! I had tears in my eyes.Anil Chatterjee as the patient is also great. Both movies had excellent soundtracks. Again Hemanta Mukherjee (aka Hemant Kumar in bollywood)at his melodious best. I guarantee you'll hum these for a while after the movie.

As the expression goes 'They don't make them as they used to. Not anymore!'I wish movies like these were made now but i cant see anyone good enough to play these characters. You need a depth in your soul to penetrate the complexity of the characters but i guess nobody is that deep anymore.

Watch this movie. Its an unforgettable experience!
