Do Deewane Shehar
Mujhe Pyar Tumse
Ek Akela Is Shehar Mein
Uttam Kumar, Sharmila Tagore, Shreeram Lagoo,
The story of “Dooriyan” (penned by Shankar Shesh who won the Filmfare trophy for Best Story) might seem rather straightforward in today’s milieu, but it certainly had an innovative streak to it in the ’70s. It deals with the personal ambition of an urban working couple and how it affects their married life, considered against the background of their courtship period — when they professed undying love for each other. Responsibilities of marriage, especially bringing up a child (Kireet Khurana — Bhimsain’s son — as a cute moppet, Moju), bring forth fault lines in heaven, generating conflict in their relationship. This leads to separation, as seemingly irreconcilable differences wreak mayhem. The denouement is left to the readers’ imagination, in a bid to spur them to watch the film.
