Barsaat Ki Raat
|Barsaat Ki Raat|
|Directed by||P. L. Santoshi|
|Produced by||R. Chandra|
K. N. Singh Ratna (Bhushan)
Sahir Ludhianvi (film song lyrics)
This film was released in black-and-white. It became particularly popular for its qawwali songs and was one of the biggest hits at the box office in 1960. This is music director Roshan's first big success; almost all the film songs became hits. Barsaat Ki Raat was also one of the last films to star celebrated actress Madhubala.
The story features a number of innovative themes while maintaining the basic form of a love story. It has particularly strong female characters who are independent-minded and choose their own loves and destiny. Conflicts are not so much between the wishes of the parents and children about whom the children will marry, as is a common theme in Indian movies, but on the more complex level of conflicts among the main characters and the duplicitous signals men and women send each other. The movie glorifies the lives of "singing girls" not often regarded highly in Indian society. Although it is set with Muslim characters, the movie seamlessly shows the universality of sensual love.
The song and dance does not occur randomly as is often the case in Indian movies; instead it is an integral part of the story-line, which involves a poet and singer as well as poetry competitions that were once common.
