Can a daughter support her family when an alcoholic and gambler father trips and falls? What does society say about a daughter going out to work?
7 January 2014 | by mg-gopalanSee all my reviews

Delhi 1962. An alcoholic brings his family to the brink of disaster, only to be saved by his daughter who graduated with a Bachelor's degree.

Neela means blue and Akash means sky. The movie title is aptly chosen, and so are the names of the two lead actors. Neela (Mala Sinha) and Dharmendra become work colleagues and fall in love. As a wealthy, handsome and well spoken man many women have designs on him, none more so than Rita and her mother.

The film begins with Akash and his sidekick Madan Lal driving in a targa (open top) Standard Herald and a ball lands in the car. Akash and Neela have a rhetorical conversation,laced with irony about return of the ball. Little do they know then that their lives will intertwine, and they will sing together to the tunes of Scottish bagpipes.

Madan Lal (Mehmood) provides some comic relief through his amorous interludes. His oft repeated dialogue "one button-hole, one button. One heart, one woman" is put to the test when three women buttonhole him as he emerges from a shower.

Shot mostly in Delhi, the picturesque Lodhi Gardens forms a scenic backdrop for romantic interludes, while the specter of Chinese aggression looms in the background.When Akash receives his call-up, he is ready, and ready to give up his life to fulfil his mission of delivering documents. In a fit of pique, he throws away the safety talisman given him by Neela, but lives to see the value of love.

From a social perspective, the values that Akash and his mother espouse, such as "sins of the father shall not be held against the daughter" are pioneering for the time. Very few families allowed their daughters to work in those days. Neela went to work because of the failure of her father; but her road was not easy.

The acting is superb, the plot is rather intense, songs are forgettable, though the lyrics are appropriate to the sequence context.

A great movie to watch to see Connaught Place as it was in the sixties, Race Course, Lodhi Gardens etc.,
