Storyline

Pran and Gopal are traveling in a convertible in the Indian countryside but the car breaks down. Near Satpur they come across a village and rest there for a few days. While there Gopal meets with Neela, while Pran meets with Reshma, and the couples fall in love with each other. Gopal, who fancies himself a Casanova of sorts, has no qualms whatsoever of leaving Neela and going out with other women, while Pran is unable to get Reshma out of his mind. The two leave, promising to return during the monsoon season. While in the city, Pran is unable to make up his mind about returning to Reshma, and Gopal prefers the company of two dancing girls, Lily and Ruby, not knowing that Reshma is shortly to be married to Bholu, while Neela, on the verge of killing herself, is anxiously awaiting Gopal's return. Watch what happens when Bholu takes Reshma to the city. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

What a film!
3 October 2006 | by beebopboy34See all my reviews

i've been in a Raj Kapoor mood lately.first of all i consider the man my mentor because everything that he's done,i want to do.i eventually want to be and actor/director for my films.i want great music for my films.i want people to appreciate my work.

on with Barsaat.this film has been done so well.forget the Barsaat of 1995 and 2005.if you want to see a film called Barsaat,than you must go all the way back to 1949.when the credits show at the beginning of the movie it says Starring Nargis before it says Raj Kapoor and i have to say that it is true.this is Nargis's film.she's acted brilliantly.she's the life and soul of this movie.Nargis is Reshma.you can see it in her eyes,her expression,and everything she says.this is probably her best performance to date.i hope eventually someone will put this film into color.

Raj Kapoor did a fabulous job acting,directing,and producing this film.this is amongst his best performances.you can tell in the scene when him and Nargis go on their first boat ride.Shankar Jaikishan's music is up to par.

the only fault in this film is the fact that there's a song every 15 to 20 minutes.too many songs.otherwise a brilliantly made film.

9.5/10
