Pyasi Sham (1969) – Review


Two loving friends, ready to die for the sake of friendship, love the same girl. One sacrifices to make the other happy. The story ends with one friend marrying the girl proving that a girl could marry only one.

Depicting the perennial triangular story the picture has its usual, wanted and unwanted incidents making it go through the usual trappings with which we are all familiar with in Hindi films.

Sunil Dutt, a happy-go-lucky man and then as one suffering from guilt complex is good in parts. Feroz Khan, now maturing into a fine artiste is effective as a noble sacrificing friend. He has done this type several times but then producers seem to be fascinated with stories with two friends loving the same girl and one somehow getting out and leaving the way clear for the other to get the girl finally. Om Prakash does his part well though this is far from his good ones. Sharmila Tagore is graceful.

Photography is excellent. The lyrics and music are of the humdrum variety.

Pyasi Sham is one more picture in the eternal love triangle without offering anything new.
