Where did you watch this movie?

A romance presumably set in early 20th C. Lucknow. Anwar (R. Kumar) glimpses the veiled Husna (Sadhana) and composes a love song for her while he sings at a college concert. Their subsequent meetings are bedevilled by class differences and family intrigues. The Eastmancolor musical, shot entirely in studios, effectively uses artifice to convey nostalgia for the elaborate courtly manners of a bygone (colonial) era. Naushad’s music enhanced this approach with e.g. the famous title number Mere mehboob tujhe meri mohabat ki kasam (sung in two versions by Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar).

FIlmmaker Harnam Singh Rawail wanted Sadhana to have a different look for the film and cut some hair off her forehead himself, which led to the famous Sadhana cut.

This film was the biggest hit of 1963.
