Sampoorna Ramayana (English: The Complete Ramayana) is a 1961 Hindi language Indian historical film directed by Babubhai Mistry, based on the Hindu epic Ramayana by Valmiki, starring Mahipal and Anita Guha as Rama and Sita respectively. The film was a box office hit,[1] and became a milestone in the history of Hindu mythology.[2] It was the second significant Hindi film based on Rama, after Vijay Bhatt's hugely popular Ram Rajya (1943). Babubhai, known for his special effects throughout his career, made extensive use of effects to enhance dramatics.[3] The film also made lead actor Anita Guha, who played the role of Sita, a household name. Lata Mangeshkar sang two of the most top-class semi-classical songs in this movie, namely "San Sanan, Sanan, Sanana, Ja Re O Pawan" and "Badalon Barso Nayan Ki Or Se", which are still very popular.[4]
