Nagina: Nutan shows much promise (if not the depth and nuance of her later roles) and of course exceptional beauty in one of her earliest films. The music by Shanker & Jaikishen is typically great: for me, this if nothing else makes the film worth watching. A couple of musical numbers, including the initial one, feature a female singer (“picturized” I suppose) with a chorus of women dancers, all in Western dress. The first one especially shows Western influence in the music and dancing, like big band boogie-woogie. Very peppy. The second number with this group features an all-girl band dressed in sailor suits. Both numbers also feature the fat comic relief male neighbor. The romantic male lead (Nasir Khan) picturizes 3 songs that are also extremely well-wrought; I wish I knew who the singer was. But honestly his songs were less to my personal taste, as they are basically of the pretty, lovesick hero variety. One has to be in the right mood.
