Harano Sur

Beautiful Bengali movie “Harano Sur” (1957) directed by Ajoy Kar and starring Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen among others.

Alok (Uttam Kumar) is in a mental hospital having lost his memory somehow. He is disoriented and Roma (Suchitra Sen) is treating him but she is not happy with the way another doctor Utpal Dutt is treating him. Alok escapes the hospital and somehow lands up at Roma’s house.

She spirits him away to her village Palaspur and starts on his recovery process. In the process she falls in love with him and marries him. Alok gets into another accident and recovers his original memory.

He heads back to Calcutta where he is a rich businessman. Roma somehow locates him at his office, but he fails to recognise him. She gets a job as a governess in his house, looking after his niece.

Its such a beautifully made movie and Suchitra Sen has done an absolutely magnificent role in the movie. Her soft touch acting is world class. Uttam Kumar has also done a superb role, very understated in his elegance. But it is Suchitra who carries the movie on her shoulders. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant, besides looking sensationally beautiful in the movie.

Its an old script on you tube but watch it purely for Suchitra Sen. She is masterclass. IMDB 8/10
