Classic tale of over protective love
14 November 2016 | by inanytimeSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful film with great acting and nice music. Sheikh Mukhtar is brilliant in his portrayal of the over protective brother, and is able to draw sympathy and attraction. Nalini Jaywant plays the young sister with charm and innocence, but it makes for an uncomfortable watch to see her playing the romantic lead at such a young age. Meena Kumari is brilliant in her role and sings the best song in the film, tohe kajra lagau mori rani.

Sheikh Mukhtar's screen presence in this film is comparable to Toshiro Mifune's in Rashomon. He is rough but charming. His acting in this film shows that he influenced later actors like Dharmendra and Manoj Kumar.

Nalini Jaywant looks very natural in her role and clearly shows that she is an extremely talented actress. She displays very good acting also in her other films that I've seen like Nastik and Shikast.

Good cinematography and direction have made this film very pleasing to the eyes. The songs are average but good.
