The musical romance that launched Rajesh Khannns career as a major star backed by the singing voice of Koshore Kumar and Burmans music in a formula that would become a typical 70s entertainer including Sharmila Tagore in the female romantic lead. - Arun (Rajesh Khanna), an Air Force Officer, secretly marries Vandana (Sharmila Tagore) who bears him a son. Arun dies in air crash. Vandana is rejected by Aruns family as his legal wife. To safeguard her sons honour, she decides to let him be adopted by a childless couple while making sure she is responsible for raising the child by becoming his nanny. - She devotes rest of her life to raise the son to become an Air Force pilot like his father. Rajesh Khanna plays both roles of father and son. - Remembered mainly for its music with e.g. Mere Sapnon Ki Rani and Kora Kaagaz. The films best known song Roop tera mastana (sung by Kishore kumar), was picturised in a single 4 take as the drenched heroine clad in a blanket succumbs to the heros sexual advances after a sexual encounter in the next room has been shown in silhouette. This sequence was for years presented to the students of Indian film schools as the definitive example of "mise en scene". Check out this page for more updates on Aradhana.
