Storyline

Orphaned at a young age, Vijay lives with his Puffi in a village and is an atheist. He is drawn towards Meeradevi, a Bhajan singing devotee, but she not only rejects him but also asks him not to come near her. When she falls ill, he makes inquiries about her, both start to converse and are drawn toward each other. She confides in him about her wealthy childhood, that was the time she was called by her real name, Surabhi, and how her brother had coerced her into marrying a much older man - compelling her to forsake all materialistic bonds and becoming a Sanyasin/Jogan. The question remains: Will she accept now him as her life partner? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

The word jogan is the female equivalent in Hindi of jogi from which we get the English word yogi. These are people (ascetics, dervishes, mendicants) who have renounced the world in search of spiritual enlightenment. This usually includes vows of celibacy and sexual abstinence and this point forms the crux of this movie: Dilip Kumar's character becomes attracted to a woman whose vocation means she cannot reciprocate. The equivalent would be someone falling in love with a nun. See more »

A Classic in its own category.
19 December 2000 | by Shailesh-2See all my reviews

Very down to earth story line; sublime performance by both Nargis and Dilip Kumar; heart warming music and sobering tragedy is how one can sum up this movie. A classic by any standard in Indian movies. Dilip Kumar is young and looks breathtakingly cute.
