Zahid Khan and Firdous in Aansoo (1971)

Capsule Review: Based on Riaz Arshad’s novel “Andhi Jawani”, Aansoo was one of the best films made during the early period of colored Lollywood films. The film dealt with the sensitive issue of rape and its after effects. Farida (Firdous) gets raped by a stranger Akhtar (Masoud Akhtar) while travelling from Karachi to Rawalpindi by train. The trauma of rape effects her psychologically for the rest of her life. Firdous who was then a popular heroine of Punjabi films gave one of her best performances in Urdu films as a character artiste. Highlights of the film were its songs including Mehdi Hassan’s “Jaan e jaan to jo kahey” – Ummer Siddique
