RAJESH KHANNA - THE GREATEST LIVING LEGEND & THE REAL AND SUPER STAR IN INDIAN CINEMA.

There are romantic leading men and there are romantic leading men, but very few have taken cinematic love to legendary heights. While there might be other icons but Super-Star- Actor Rajesh Khanna after four decades, he is the ultimate true romantic legend.


A social-realist melodrama about a man (Khanna in his debut) who secretly marries a gypsy girl from the hills (Mukherjee). They have a son (Bunty) but misunderstandings arise and the wife ens up living on the streets of Bombay with the child. She dies, leaving the boy wandering the citys streets, having his own little adventures while his distraught father searches for him. With its extensive acutality footage of Bombays slums, suburban trains and working-class life, the film evokes, e.g., K.A. Abbass urban melodramas (Munna, 1954; Shaher Aur Sapna, 1963). The film deploys a simple set ofoppositions to signal good and bad; jazzy music and discotheques signify the callous and modern rich whiel the poor display their human warmth through acts kidness to the child. Although the soundtrackadheres to the realist principle of using the pilot dialogue track for all speech expect that of the hero and heroine, it occasionally inserts suspense music to plug the narrative gaps in the plot.
