User Reviews

A good melodramatic movie.
29 March 2020 | by Umar Mansoor BajwaSee all my reviews

It is a good engaging film that centers on the morality of a good natured woman belonging to the red light area. Mumtaz is the main star and the whole story revolves around her misfortunes. Sanjeev Kumar has also given a stunning performance as the poet Vijay. But the ending of the movie resonates with the excellent cameo performance of Jeetender. The evocative performance of Mumtaz coupled with Jeetender steals the show defining the end.

The only shortcoming in this movie is extra comical sequences associated with comedian Jagdeep which are unnecessary and unsynchronized with the main plot. Nonetheless, it is a good lesson oriented social drama film based on good direction, especially the opening song and the one "Khilona jaan kar tum tu....".
