Story


Kala Pani is a 1958 Indian Bollywood social, romance, musical, crime film released on Jan 01, 1958. The film is directed by Raj Khosla, produced by Dev Anand under banner named Navketan.

For 15 years, Karan Mehra (Dev Anand) had believed that his father was dead. Then his mother told him the truth, that his father was convicted for murder & was serving a prison term. With only childhood memories of his father, as a kind loving & gentle man, Karan believed his father was innocent. He sets on an unusual non-violent path to prove his father's innocence. During this he falls in love with an officer working for a newspaper (Madhubala) which he visits for newspaper article reference. While his search for witnesses brings him to some people, where he meets the prostitute who was the key witness to the murder in which his father was accured. The mystery then unfolds.

A crime movie about institutionalised corruption. Hero Karan (Anand) discovers that his father, believed dead, is in fact in jail for a murder he did not commit. Karan sets out to prove his fathers innocence with the help of a jourlaist, Asha (Madhubala). The villain is the corrupt public prosecutor (Sahu). The key witness is a dancer, Kishori, played by Nalini Jaywant who elevates the film beyond its plot. Her own desire, rendered in the hit Asha Bhosle number Nazar laagi raja tore bangle pe, makes for an ambiguous love triangle that also provides other reasons to that of the heros vendetta for seeking out the truth. The other song hit Hum bekhudi me tumko pukara (sung by Mohammed Rafi), in which Kishori unleashes her charms on the drunker hero, was described by Mahesh Bhatt (1993) as a typical example of a Raj Khosla song and his unique attitude towards sex on the Indian screen.
