Storyline

A traumatized Mirpur-based woman, Beena, hears the whistle of an in-coming diesel train and recalls the story of her impoverished family - consisting of her widowed father, Lakhibaba; and two sisters, Tara and Radha. The former has been engaged over 3 years ago to Dakya Shravan Kumar, while her very own marriage has been arranged with Lachuram Choudhury. Then everything changes after a new post-master, known simply as Bade Babu, formerly of Sialkot, takes charge. Tara and he are drawn together and she hopes that he will eventually marry her. Then a fire destroys his dwelling and he is quite dramatically rescued by Radha. His grateful mother arrives there temporarily to express her gratitude to the child, and states that she will return soon. Taking this as a positive sign, both Radha and Tara start making plans for the latter's marriage - not fully knowing that Tara's fiancé has already made plans to end his prolonged engagement and is all set to head a wedding procession and compel ...

Chanchal's name in movie is Beena, Vijaylakshmi's name is Seeta.
2 August 2012 | by hnrastogiSee all my reviews

It's a sad but very interesting movie. Madhubala wanted to play all different kinds of role therefore in her own production she played the character of a simple village girl and she played it to the perfection. Music is quite befitting. Madhubla is enchanting without make up and in simple dresses she out shined as always. The dance number at Janam ashtami in the temple has a canny resemblance to her dance in Magnum Opus movie Mughale Azam "Mohe panghat pe". I admire her for embracing Hindu culture in the movies but then most Indian movies are about Hindus. Chanchal gave a remarkable performance complimenting Madhubala every step of the way and kept some humor in the movie.Its a lovely story of two sisters so much in love with each other, the end of the movie was a tearjerker for me and I cried. I have seen this movie at least 10 times and will keep repeating because Madhubala is not among us anymore to make such movies. It's a treasure.
