Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne
Vijay is the son of a line of temple sculptors who has not touched his craft since he became a young man. After meeting a girl, Vidya, while giving a tour of the monuments, his heart is enraptured by her image and this inspires a return to his sculpting. Unfortunately, her mother has been preparing her with dancing lessons in order to sell Vidya's life and virginity to a rich man who will take both of them into his palace to keep this girl as a part of his collection of pleasures. When the day comes for this decision to be revealed, Vidya escapes from home into the arms of Vijay. Although Vijay's father is hostile toward meddling with these matters and has no confidence that Vidya could tolerate their lifestyle of poverty, Vijay is able to marry her with the help of the kindly and sympathetic "Uncle". One day, Vijay and his wife are approached by a patron from the big city who is looking to build a house for the sake of an eccentric gentleman who has lost his beloved daughter, a girl whose whereabouts remain unknown. —Jeannette McCree
V. Shantaram was foremost an artist, then a film-maker. He was an admirer of bright and vibrant colors which he matched it with classiest choreography and photography. He was a film-Maker, who brought out the immense cultural diversity to the screen. "Geet Gaya Pattharrone" is a classic in Indian movies, that few have heard of. The movie, starred his daughter Rajshree, whose life in films was cut short by matrimony and she moved abroad after couple of more movies. One of them with Raj Kapoor called "Around The World". This movie was a debut for Jitendra, in a role that looked like he was on sedative! as compared to his later movies where he was the "jumping jack!" of Indian movies. Rajshree, was more a great dancer (born to dance)than an actress. The title song with the background of a beautiful melody and dance is a treat for the senses. There are some enchanting melodies so much so the movie DVD must be a treasure to own. This movie certainly was an embodiment of the dedication that the old filmmakers had towards their craft and the cast was selected based on talent. Rajshree, single-handedly opened the Indian fashion to the Western World. She was one of the classiest actress of the times and one has to see the movie to appreciate it. This is one of the best movies from the venerable V. Shantaram, the other being "Janak Janak Payal Bhaje."
