| Mental health issues can have its roots in our childhood
As a mental health professional, I am glad that this movie was made and it gives an immense pleasure that the movie was made very long time ago. The movie depicts the mental health problem of multiple personality disorder which was previously termed as split personality disorder. The movie is very well researched about the disorder and this movie feels like a case study of the patient rather than a movie itself which is a compliment in itself. Nargris portrayed the character very gracefully and it's not an easy character to portray especially splitting between the opposite extremes in a frame. The movie is very well written and the narrative is very interesting, making it a very fine movie if it's time.
What did not work:
The length could have been cut down if the songs were taken out. I think it's not the issue but a concern, if the movie was made even today it would have been a great movie considering the absence of color and technical aspects in the movie
Final verdict: recommended
