"One of Hindi cinema s most memorable films, it captures unforgettable and often nostalgic images of an era long gone - of zamindari and palatial mansions, of baijis and women restricted to homes. Remade from a Bangla classic, this film is an integral part of the films which make up Dutt's remarkable legacy. Bhoothnath [Guru Dutt] comes to Calcutta in search of work and finds work as a servant in a rich household. He soon finds himself drawn to the zamindar's pretty young wife, commonly known as Chhoti Bahu [Meena Kumari], who in his view seems to lead a remarkably lonely life as she spends her long days waiting for her husband to return. Her husband spends his time steeped in alcohol and women, and so desparate is Chhoti Bahu to get him that she even takes to drinking to attune herself to his lifestyle. The film has a tragic undercurrent throughout, where the downfall of the Chowdhury household is symbolic of an era on its last legs. One of the films that established Meena Kumari as a tragedy queen, the film [features] a youthful and lively Waheeda Rehman. The music for the film still remains a favourite and its songs like Na jao saiyan, Koi door se awaaz de and Bhanwra bada nadaan hai are often heard even now, almost half a century later."--Ultra India
