Naseem lives a poor lifestyle with his widowed mom in Lucknow, India. He is well-known for his poems, and gets invited to a contest hosted by Nawab Naseemuddin who has offered a reward of Rs.5000/- to the winner. Naseem does win this award, but is humiliated as his coat his torn. As a result he refuses to accept the price. His to-be brother-in-law Sultan, in order to hasten his sister, Mehrunisa's marriage to Naseem concocts a plan in which Naseem finds the reward buried in his yard. As a result, Naseem and Mehrunisa get married, but on the very night both find out Sultan's trick, and postpone the marriage nuptials until such time they are able to return every Paisa to the Nawab. Naseem re-locates to Bombay. Shortly thereafter his money-orders start arriving and within a few years the amount to be returned is almost accumulated. Then the family receive news that there was an explosion in the shipyards where Naseem works, about 300 people are killed, and Naseem is believed to be dead ...

A triangle lover story presented with a difference
1 March 2014 | by sherrvin-1See all my reviews

It's a simple triangle love story presented nicely, especially after Naseem arrives back. Highlight of the movie is characterization of Nawab Naseemuddin's role, played by Rehman, who always tries to settle the story in his own favor rather than fighting with protagonist or creating ruckus. And he delivers a power packed performance. The next best is Waheeda Rehman as Mehunnisa. The lady is a class apart while performing pre-marriage bubbly scenes or sad scenes. Rajendra Kumar is as usual. Others have contributed well. Nice but not so popular Naushad music with songs; 1) Kal Raat Zindagi Se Mulaqaat, 2) Main Idhar Jaun Ya, 3) Ae Shahar-e-Lucknow, 4) Dil-e-Betaab Ko Seene Se, 5) Dil Ki Kashti Bhanwar Mein, 6) Sadka Utariye Ke Na Lage, 7) Chehre Se Apne Aaj To Parda, 8.) Jane Wale Tera Khuda and 9) Mere Ghar Se Pyar Ki Palki.
