I first saw this movie in the early 1970's.
This is one movie that has made me think what life is really about as it is based on the life of one of Bollywood's greatest movie makers, the late Raj Kapoor. This film has everything from drama to tragedy but above all its very emotional as it portrays facts of life. The songs are excellent and the late Mukesh, who was considered by Raj Kapoor, to be his voice is just brillaint. The most memorable songs are"Jane Kahan Gaye Woh Din" and "Jeena Yahan, Marna Yahan."
This is also Raj Kapoor's son, Rishi Kapoor's, first film. The film has a multi cast, including Simi Garewall, Manoj Kumar, Padmini, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Dara Singh, Achala Sachdev and a Russian actress - Raj Kapoor was much admired in Russia.
Conclusion: A most memorable film.
