Aazaad is a 1940 Indian Bollywood film released on 1940. This is story of a rebel band-a of two whom chance and chivalry made known to each other, love joined together and no man could put asunder . This is the story of Vijay and Jamuna: the one by conviction, a declared rebel against worn out social belidfs the other, by circumstances, a refugee from societys shady transactions. In their rebellion, they were persecuted in their victory, they were acclimed by the persecutors themselves. . It all began when Vijay was at college. A rich youg man, equally well- endowed with intellect and moral courage, Vijay made no secret of his belief that marriage without love ws an abhorence. This naturally brought him into conflict with his co-student Lohnath Dada who was a pillar of conservatisum, a pillar that neither logic not commonsense could shake. Between these two men of opposite views, was Jagadish. Ties of friendship crew him towards Vijay, while his social instinct dragged him towards Loknath. . It was Jagadishs hope that Vijays beliefs might not have to pass beyond their blub debates. So that, when the challege to action caem, it found Jagadish unprepared. . The challenge came in the shape of a young woman hunted by a bratal man, while Vijay and Jagadish were having a midnight stroll. Vijay promptly gve the girl protection and took her home. jagadish would have none of it and slunk away. That girl was Jamuna. . In the eyes of Jagadish and Loknath-and so of the rest of the world the circumstances under which Vijay had met her, branded her a fallen woman. In the eyes of Vijay, the only person to enquite into the truth Jamuna was a pure woman and a courageous heroine. . Companionship converted chivalry into love and despite Jamunas gallant offer to eliminate her own exstence, she foud her life joinced to that of Vijay. It is a customary belief that marriage ends all, as it does its comedy; the truth is the reverse. It begins everything. With Vijay and Jamuna, it began an era of social persecution and, simultaneously, of the stendy building of the edifice of faith. Vijay left college and seteled down with Jamuna in far-off Ratanpur. . To Loknath, the events gave a new tub to thumb upon. To Jagadish, it meant the trafic end of a eherished friendship. It was long before he realised that friendship can have no end. . It was as long as twenty-five years. Each of the three men had gone his own way. Loknath continued his career as a stalwart reactionist. Jagadish built up a flourishing legal practice in Calcatta; married, had a daughter, and lost his wife. Vijay and Jamuan were blessed with a brilliant boy who took a medical degree with high honours. It was now given to his son, Anand, to be the instrument of fresh contact in circumstances no less dramatic then those of their parting. . On his way to Calcutta for post-graduate training, Anand, a chip of the old block, happened ot earn the profound gratitude of a father by rescuing his daughter from the hands of a train dacoit. Perhaps it was as well that he did not realise that the father was Jagasidh, and that Jagadish did no disclose to him the story of his own friendship whit Vijay. Jagadish had not quite chandged his attitude towards his former friend, but sheer gratitude compelled him to invite Anand to his house in Culcutta! . It may be somewhat natural to guess at the romance between Anand and Jagadishs daugheter Seeta, but the turn of events that ensued from it was such as to prove the adage that fact is often stranger than fiction. To anticipate them here, would be to rob an essentially dramatic screen narrative of its supremest element of surprise. It should be enough to say that quiet fnlth brought a tumultous triumph to Vijay and Jamuna; and that the discords of the past lent poignant sweetness to the harmony that was now estnblished. The union of the rebels son with the detractors daughter symbolised that harmony, and among those who blessed who blessed it was Loknath Dada himself. Check out this page for more updates on Aazaad.
