Where did you watch this movie?

Samanta’s hit with an all-Bengali star cast reconnects with the Bengali-Hindi bilinguals and signifies to some extent the powerful Bombay production sector’s cultural takeover of the Bengali cinema. In the village of Dhaniakhali, the new police chief Bhuvan Sen finds corruption and decay personified by the dissolute Madhusudhan Roy Choudhury (Kumar), the zamindar’s son. However, the cause of the rot is not the persistence feudalism in the village but the presence of the sophisticated and mild-mannered Mahim Babu, cast as the villain who turns the head of Madhusudhan’s girlfriend Lekha (Tagore). The policeman eventually restores the old feudal power relations, rehabilitates the hero and restores Lekha to him. This reactionary parable was celebrated for the performance of Bengali megastar Uttam Kumar. The Hindi version has the hit song Dil aisa kisine mera toda, sung by Kishore Kumar.

Did you know? When Shakti Samanta decided to make the film Amanush in both Bengali and Hindi, Rajesh Khanna expressed to Samanta his willingness to play the lead in Hindi. But Khanna being too busy asked Samanta to delay the shooting by a few months for the Hindi version, but Samanta thought he could make both versions easily if Uttam Kumar himself starred in the Hindi version too. Rajesh Khanna was very disappointed on having lost this role just because of date issues. Read More
