Movie Info

A Muslim prostitute, Sahibjaan (Meena Kumari) yearns to escape the brothel in which she was brought up, much like her mother Nargis (also Kumari) before her, who also lived the life of a courtesan. But, when a young man from a respectable family, Salim Ahmed Khan (Raaj Kumar), hears her sing and dance, he falls in love. Unfortunately, his wealthy parents are against any relationship between them, so Salim abandons his family in order to be with Sahibjaan, even after he finds out about her past.

Critic Reviews for The Pure One (Pakeezah)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • It requires from an audience stamina and submission to the Scheherazade tradition of story-telling.

  • A byzantine story (of star-crossed lovers) that proceeds fitfully through the fabulous logic of dreams; luscious colour-scope photography, and a febrile camera craning and tracking restlessly through fairytale locations and sets.

    Comparing to Nikaah, Pakeezah was much better to watch. Great Perfomance by Meena Kumari.

    Pakeezah is one of the Movies I first had my doubts and thought this would be a "Nikaah" sort of Movie, but I was very surprised, Pakeezah was nice to watch.
