Navrang is a 1959 Hindi film Bollywood movie by Shantaram Rajaram Vankudre (V. Shantaram).[1] The film is noted for its dance sequences with lead actress Sandhya[2] and music by C. Ramchandra, while playback singer Mahendra Kapoor made his singing debut with the song "Aadha Hai Chandrama Raat Aadhi".[3]


Diwakar is a poet and loves his wife Jamuna above everything. But Jamuna does not agree that Diwakar lives out of sheer poetry in a fantasy world and in the real world is less and less responsible. Diwakar goes so far that he is a fantasy woman in his wife's body creates what he calls Mohini. Diwakar will soon become a recognized poet and Jamuna gives birth to a boy. Unfortunately, the happiness does not last long: Diwakar loses his job because of a critical song against the British. Now he can no longer feed his sickly father nor his son, who is starving. All this makes Jamuna angry, but above all, Diwakars growing obsession with Mohini.

As Jamuna decides to live apart from Diwakar, she is destroyed internally and is no longer capable of proof. Jamuna slowly realizes that she can not live without Diwakar and forgives him.
