V. Shantaram was a master filmmaker who was too before his time and Parchhaiyan proves that...among his others works like "Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957)", Manoos (1939) etc which all stand the test of time for being realistic and believable if ignored other times when it take clichés and soppy angles to move forward.

About this film, which stars the director and the producer himself as in the lead role, V. Shantaram was a master of many trades.

This film is about a man who when trying to commit suicide gets blinded by the bullet fired by the female lead, Jayashree, who then helps him to get his eyesight back and meanwhile falls in love with her to only know that their love is prohibited by her mother Queen aka Badi Rani (Lalita Pawar) and her suitor, Vinod (Wasti) and as results, Deepak (V. Shantaram) who is grappling with psychological voices which are talking as his shadows(thus the title) and Saloni (Jayshree) are fallen to inevitable circumstances. By the end, you will not be able to realize how karma played with them in love, eyesight and death.

At last, looking at the time it was made in and the budget it had, the film stand pretty far good from it other films and filmmakers. The songs and acts are acceptable and can be taken closely, esp., of the main male lead and the song "Mohabbat Hi Na Jo Samjhe Woh Zalim Pyar Kya Jane" & "Ae Dard-E-Jigar Mere Dard-E-Jigar".

The best i took from the was the psychological angst and void of the Deepak (V. Shantaram) which was evident and obvious from the start that things are going to be not happy.

I expect you to see this film as a definitely yes. \
