Strangely ALL the comments left for this film.........


Strangely, ALL the user comments posted for this movie are by Foreigners. Not ONE Indian has posted a comment for this movie, let alone "People of Indian Origin". Its not only this film, a lot of Foreigners have posted comments on most Indian Films from the 50s and early 60s. It seems this was the Golden Age for Indian Cinema. I had heard that till the mid 80s Indian Movies were very popular in the Middle East,Iran,Irak,Turkey,Eastern Europe. But I did not know that people loved Indians and Indian movies to this Extent! All of you Foreigners Thank You for your comments, Thank you for your Love... I'm Overwhelmed. I wish I was born in those Decades when Indian culture and Indians were still loved. I’m sick of having to deal, having to quarrel with these White Supremacists, Racists, Neo Nazis everywhere I go... Youtube, IMDB,Pubs,Clubs,Restaurants. Certain White people hate Indians(I don’t know why) and Certain Indians look down upon White people saying they Lack Culture. “Indians Stink.. they smell of Curry!" "Europeans.. eww their Mouths smell. Look at what she's wearing she has no Shame!" this is what I hear all the time! Yes to Europeans Indians appear to stink.. but this is because we have a Different and stronger body odour compared to yours.. because we are a different race.. we eat different food, we sweat more than you do and we smell of Curry coz the food we cook has a strong smell. To Indians Europeans' Mouths appear to stink.. but this because they eat different food which us Indians are not used to.. they do not use so many spices. We are in the 21st Century today.. CAN'T WE BEHAVE IN A MORE DIGNIFIED MANNER WITH EACH OTHER ?

Hello,
this movie was a very big success in the 60's in Romania. Raj Kapoor was also well-known here, for a few decades. I was not even born at that time, but I've watched this movie in the 90's and I was impressed - it is a true masterpiece. Whatta pitty that all the recent Indian movies I've seen are not at the same artistic level...
As regards those Europeans which don't respect the Indians and their culture, they are simply stupid - because they don't know anything about you at all.

My family is from east africa and also grew up watching indian movies, i grew up in the uk and love indian movies that i discovered thru indian friends, I LOVE the indian culture, food, movies. What u say has some truth, its revelance to this post is debatable but it must say somthing that indian cusine, fashion is appreciated worldwide and that bollywood is more widely watched in the world than hollywood and better loved, shove that in the face to those who think the asian community is inferior.

The 50s and 60s truly were the golden age of Indian cinema. Plenty of Indian filmmakers from this era achieved international acclaim, including Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Raj Kapoor, Bimal Roy, Guru Dutt, Mrinal Sen, etc.
