Meena Kumari at her crying best
13 May 2006 | by a-lalySee all my reviews

Ek Hi Raasta is really Daisy Irani's movie, centering around the brat Raja who is the apple of everyone's eye. If only all children around the world are doted on as this child. Very much over the top and a bit too saccharine. The film stars Daisy Irani but the movie credits list her as Roop Kumar. A stellar star cast of a young and beautiful Meena Kumari, along with a dashing young Sunil Dutt. But the second half of the film belongs to Ashok Kumar. The villains are never brought to justice, the film focuses on widowhood, remarriage and issues of step fathers and step children. The black and white photography is good, the music not quite memorable.
