The most famous movie from the Navketan Banner which had R. K. Narayan’s famous novel  translated on the screen in an impressive way. It is an unconventional story about following your heart over your mind. It’s about the choices we make in our lives, the work we choose to do for our living and the regrets we have at the back of our minds about our choices made.

The story revolves around how a guide changes the outlook of a married woman and then they both decide to live a different life together. It’s unarguably the best film of both actor Dev Anand and director Vijay Anand. A classy film which has many elements blended together as different colours sprayed on a white canvas. Love, Betrayal, Passion, Art, Success and Failure, all aspects of life are portrayed in a very true form by the director.
Interestingly, it was made in two versions, one in English for the Western viewers and one in Hindi for the Indian Audiences. The English version was released even before the release of the Hindi version as Dev was more confident of its success in the west. Credit for the success of the movie also goes to its melodious music by S. D. Burman, wherein each song is a priceless gem cherished till date by every hindi film music lover. A must watch as a pure Classic of Indian Cinema.
