An effort unparalleled, a movie unbelievable, a climax that leaves you speechless!!!
25 December 2012 | by jadhavamolSee all my reviews

Brilliant movie, absolutely brilliant. Agreed that the 50s era was the golden period of Indian cinema, however, this masterpiece from 1948 can be compared to the best of best of Indian cinema. Raj Kapoor, in first major appearance, is damn good. In fact, after watching this movie and some of his early 50s movies, I think he had the capability to match head to head with the likes of Dilip Kumar, Ashok Kumar and Bachchan. But he wasted his talent imitating Chaplin. Back to the review, the treatment of the movie is typical 50s style. The movie begins slowly, the intensity starts building up post the second half, in the latter part of the second half the movie reaches its pinnacle and the climax, phew, is simply brilliant. All in all, the movie is a masterpiece. The direction from Kaul is bang-on. I would wanna bet to anyone who watches this movie and would be able to shrug off the nostalgic magic of the climax for at least a couple of hours. The climax haunts you. Feel blessed to have watched this movie. A true gem!!!
