A watchable film
28 August 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This little known film stars Ashok Kumar, Nargis and Raj Kapoor. The plot plays out like a love triangle with Ashok(Ashok Kumar) loving Roopa(Nargis) who in turns loves Raj(Raj Kapoor).

This film does not obviously match to standards of finer Raj Kapoor's films like the earlier Awaara or the later Shree 420. In typical style, the plot moves slowly but definitely to an unexpected climax. The songs are listenable to, maybe once. Where the film shines is its characterization and the acting by the lead actors. Ashok Kumar is restrained and provides contrast to Raj's mannerisms.

All summed up, this film isn't a must watch but Raj Kapoor's fans won't be disappointed by it.
