| All time great !!
'Naya Daur' literally meaning a New Road - is a fine story of a young village man who wants to challenge onslaught of machines in his daily life by building a new road in his village. B.R. Chopra has beautifully portrayed this story of the triumph of the human spirit when pitted against seemingly insurmountable odds. The acting performance is superb and natural - from Dilp Kumar and Vaijayanimala down to the extras. O.P. Nayyar's evergreen music is haunting even today and never seems out of place in the whole movie.

Even in this 'naya daur' of high technology, this movie retains a perennial charm that comes only from honest and impassioned film-making. But above all, it serves as a gentle reminder that the most intricate computer will always be the human brain, and that man is the greatest machine that will be ever made.
