A war film but not a war film
31 December 2018 | by sherrvin-1See all my reviews

It's not a war film but the story is all about families of soldiers, their passion to serve the nation and their fear to lose loved ones at war front, simultaneously. Nirupa Roy is at her best, as always. For this role, she won the best actress in a supporting role award at the Filmfare Awards 1965. Her strong presence and Johny Walker's comedy skills saves this movie to some extent but that was not enough. I fail to understand why Vishwajeet was considered to be a good actor. This movie does not endorse it, at least. Rajshree is average. Music is good but no notable song except the melodiously memorable "Na Jhatko Zulf Se Paani". Watch only this song and forget the movie.
