    Actually the last 20-30 minutes make up for the admittedly slow build-up. Melodrama done right. 5 years ago

    Watching this film was an absolute joy. The very definition of a cinematic masterpiece. It's not hard to see why Indian cinema was among the best in the world during the 1950s and 60s. 6 years 3 months ago

    Glad someone enjoyed it because I felt like it lasted forever. Characters were irritating, music bad & everything overly dramatized. 6 years 2 months ago
