Balraj Sahni As Salim Mirza is One Of The Memorable Performance By Him...Geeta Sidharth As Amina Daughter Of Salim Mirza ...Gives A Excellent Performance...Her Character Of A Lover Is One Of The Complicated Characters...Then We Have A Very Young Farooq Shaikh As Sikander Mirza....His Debut Film...He Has Done Well...The Others Badar Begum As Granny....A.K Hungal As Azmani & Jalal Agha As Shamshad Are Well Written Characters...

Music Is Not Important In This Movie...But Still Have A Single Song i.e "Maula Salim Chisti" A Qawwali By Aziz Ahmed Khan...

Overall A Great Attempt To Show Effects Of Partition On People In India...There Are Few Memorable Scenes In The Movie Which Makes It Worth Watch ...A Kind Of Art Film....A Must Watch...:)
