Major commercial hit recounting a love triangle in a feudal household between
the handsome new postman Ashok (Kumar), Bela (Nargis),the old postman's
vivacious daughter and Usha (Sultana), the haughty daughter of the zamindar.
Ashok teaches Usha music until Bela warns her to keep away from her man. Usha
withdraws and promises to marry a man of her father's choice. One of the most
formally elaborate romance dramas of the 50s Hindi films. Bahul's tragic end
forms part of the unusual plot departure of the heroine and who,indeed, remains
out of sympathy with the audience for the better part of the film.
