An updating of the Anmol Ghadi (1946)
love triangle, this time featuring mainly the heroine’s amnesia. The rivals for her love are an adventurer (Adib) who calls himself Laatsaheb (i.e. Lord Sahib) and a professor (Surendra). Each is associated with her life on either side of her memory divide, giving each a particular stake in whether she be allowed to recall her past or not. Remarkably shot in heavy chiaroscuro, esp. in the backdrops at the professor’s house where the heroine battles with her amnesia.
