A triangular love story with some humor and good songs
24 February 2013 | by dbhattacSee all my reviews

Dastan is one of Suraiya's films where she is not a begum or a princess but a humble orphan girl living with a wealthy family. Here in this film she played suitor to three possible persons and one of them is no other than Raj Kapoor. The movie is well directed by A.R. Kardar with some melodious music by Naushad assisted by Golam Muhammed. Suraiya displayed great acting skill as well as she sang a couple of very nice songs. This was the period when Suraiya was at her peak of her career and made a few hits acting opposite some of the big names. The dialogue was well written and Veena as the strict disciplinarian acted very well. Raj Kapoor's antics were a bit excessive but still was enjoyable. I graded it as a seven out of ten.
