Tere Ghar Ke Saamne
Black and white movies has a very different charm watching. I would talk about a classic movie, Tere Ghar Ke Samne, released in early sixties, produced by Dev Anand, and directed by Vijay Anand. A fascinating love story enacted superbly by handsome Dev Anand and beautiful Nutan.
Head of two families, just to prove their superiority over the other, become rivals, is the back ground of the story. How Dev Anand, the architect, who works for his father (Omprakash), as well as for Nutan’s father (Harindranath Chattopadhyay), to design their kothis, (both rivals are not aware that they have the same architect), and, in the process, how he woos lovely and naughty Nutan, is very interesting and exciting. The situations created are perfect for both of them to fall in love.
Music by S.D.Burman is superb and equally, superbly picturised. A song, Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukar, is picturised in Qutub Minar, is outstanding. Nutan’s grace, her sparkling eyes and her smile, pour out all her love for Dev Anand, without even uttering a single word, is exhilarating. Another of my favorite songs is, Tu Kahan Ye Bata, sung by the hero, who, on his scooter goes to Shimla in search of his love, is also superbly picturised. Even after so many years, many of the songs are engraved in my memories. Good picturisation immortalizes good music.
I was 21 when this movie was released, and I purchased the same scooter, ‘Lambretta’, of the same color, the one the hero used in the movie, and proudly, I used to drive around the town with that famous hair style, Dev Anand puff. That was the effect on me and the youngsters of that time.
Guys, don’t miss to watch this classic if you want to enjoy and see how the romance is depicted in the sixties.
My ratings would be 4.5 for the direction, music and the acting of the super duper jodi of those days, the dashing, handsome Dev Anand and the ravishing, beautiful Nutan.
