Barsaat shuttles between the stories of romantic idealist Pran and his more carnally-driven best friend Gopal, who both meet and romance the daughters of innkeepers.
Often listed as one of Hindi cinema’s best soundtracks, Barsaat marks the grand debut of music-director duo Shankar-Jaikishan. A music-filled romance whose beauty lies in its poetic simplicity, this classic holds audiences captive with Nargis and Raj Kapoor’s scintillating chemistry.
