Naseem lives a poor lifestyle with his widowed mom in Lucknow, India. He is well-known for his poems, and gets invited to a contest hosted by Nawab Naseemuddin who has offered a reward of Rs.5000/- to the winner.

A triangle lover story presented with a difference
1 March 2014 | by sherrvin-1See all my reviews

It's a simple triangle love story presented nicely, especially after Naseem arrives back. Highlight of the movie is characterization of Nawab Naseemuddin's role, played by Rehman, who always tries to settle the story in his own favor rather than fighting with protagonist or creating ruckus. And he delivers a power packed performance. The next best is Waheeda Rehman as Mehunnisa. The lady is a class apart while performing pre-marriage bubbly scenes or sad scenes. Rajendra Kumar is as usual. Others have contributed well. Nice but not so popular Naushad music with songs; 1) Kal Raat Zindagi Se Mulaqaat, 2) Main Idhar Jaun Ya, 3) Ae Shahar-e-Lucknow, 4) Dil-e-Betaab Ko Seene Se, 5) Dil Ki Kashti Bhanwar Mein, 6) Sadka Utariye Ke Na Lage, 7) Chehre Se Apne Aaj To Parda, 8.) Jane Wale Tera Khuda and 9) Mere Ghar Se Pyar Ki Palki.
