Deedar (Hindi: दीदार, "glance") is a 1951 Bollywood Hindi language film directed by Nitin Bose and starring Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Nargis and Nimmi. A story of unfulfilled love, when hero's childhood love is separated from him due to class inequalities. It is one of noted tragedies made in early Hindi cinema. It became a popular film of the Golden era and further established Dilip Kumar as "King of Tragedy".
Many years later, when Deedar was having a rerun at Mumbai theatres, actor Manoj Kumar, who asked director Raj Khosla to accompany him for a show.
