P. L. Santoshi directed and R. Chandra produced Barsaat Ki Raat, a 1960 Indian Hindi-language romantic musical film. The film, which stars Madhubala, Bharat Bhushan, and Shyama, is regarded as a classic example of the romantic musical cinema genre.
The film is a Muslim-social drama set among the erudite and intellectual urban Muslims of independent India. It follows two loves, Shabnam (Madhubala) and Amaan Hyderabadi (Bhushan), who try to be together but are rejected by society.
The film became a huge success upon its debut, being the second most grossing picture of 1960, the twenty-first highest-grossing film of the 1960s at the Indian box office, and one of the top one hundred grossing films of all time (when adjusted for inflation).
The film Barsaat Ki Raat received positive reviews from reviewers today. Both reviewers and audiences praised the Roshan-composed soundtrack, which is widely regarded as one of the best in Indian film.
‘Zindagi Bhar Nahi Bhoolegi,’ one of the songs, topped the music charts that year. Barsaat Ki Raat has become a cult classic, with 21st-century critics praising Madhubala’s acting and the soundtrack in particular. The latter is still frequently replicated and popular.
