Sangham(1964)
29 August 2007 | by iftikharkhokherSee all my reviews

One of Raaj Kapoor's best films where his acting is flawless and very close to his private personality.For years we saw him in the familiar 'charlie chaplin' guise so this film was an accolade to his inherent acting abilities.Vyjantimala is superb and Rajendra Kumar is also in good form though overshadowed by Kapoor.The music and direction,especially the scenario are very professional and admirable.TThe story is well-balanced though as in all Indian films the flaws are also there;Raj's death and his subsequent arrival are the weak points.This film shows the real Raj Kapoor behind the clown's mask;ruthless and opportunist.A very enjoyable and well directed film.
