As the mother, Nargis is as resolute as a force of nature, and Mehboob Khan creates tableaux of the family that evoke its fragile unity.

True, there are dull spots and the overripe supporting cast pale beside Nargis' 'force of nature' central performance, but overall it's a wallowy treat.

Often said to have helped set the pattern for the nearly 50 years of Indian film that has followed it.

An outrageous masala of apparently discordant elements.
