It was the second greatest hit bollywood film of 1949 after Barsaat. Mehboob Khan directed the film. The music of the film had been composed by Naushad Ali. In the film Nargis was the daughter of a rich businessman played by Murad. Dilip Kumar saved her from a horse when she was riding the horse. From that time Nargis and her friend Cuckoo became fan of Dilip Kumar. The relationship became closer. On the day when Dilip Kumar wanted to tell Nargis about his attachment, her father got a heart attack and died. Nargis made Dilip Kumar partner of the family business. At that time Raj Kapoor came from London. Dilip Kumar came to know that Nargis and Raj Kapoor’s marriage was previously fixed. Raj Kapoor married Nargis. Dilip Kumar presented a doll to Nargis and Raj Kapoor’s daughter on her birthday. In that doll Dilip Kumar mentioned that Nargis loved Raj Kapoor and not Dilip Kumar. One day when Nargis told that she did not love the partner, Raj Kapoor heard it thinking that she told about him. But she mentioned it about Dilip Kumar. Raj Kapoor suspected Nargis of having relationship with Dilip Kumar and in a confrontation hit Dilip Kumar and left with his daughter.

At the end of the film Raj Kapoor read the letter written by Dilip Kumar and met with Nargis in the prison. Naushad Ali gave excellent music in the film. Mukesh’s song “tu kahe agar”, Rafi and Lata’s duet song “yuh to aapas me bigadte hai” became super hit. Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote the lyrics of the film. Nargis, Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar were excellent in the film. This was the only film where the titans Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor acted together. Very significantly Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor showed that they were going to rule bollywood industry for another 30 years. They remained the greatest stars India had ever produced and were the rulers of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s. The film should be preserved and restored.
