Salma Agha's Second Finest Moment
12 August 2005 | by akbarnaliSee all my reviews

"Salma" is the second film featuring Pakistani singer and actress Salma Agha opposite Raj Babbar. It is a remake of a Pakistani classic from the 50s called "Anjumana". The story is a love triangle revolving around a singer from Lucknow (Salma) whose affections are sought by two best friends, played by Raj Babbar (Aslam) and Farooq Sheikh. Because she is a lowly singer, Salma is put upon by Aslam's family who desires him to marry the spoilt Mumtaz, and even attempt to poison Salma. There is much melodrama typical of 80s Bollywood. The film works well enough as a narrative, but its stand-out moments are the brilliantly sung and choreographed QAWAALIS, of which there are three: the introductory "Adab Apne Dil Ko Sikhaane Parega", the competitive "Kaahe Bethe Ho", and the suicidal finale "Zindagi Tere Dar Pe" which is hauntingly rendered by Salma. The film bombed at the b.o. (it had not the same sophistication or grip of Salma's debut, "Nikaah") but it gives an interesting look into the world of Aristocratic India. The performances are all good, especially by the leading players. It's a shame the film is so hard to find on DVD or even VHS as it should be seen by more than the few who remember it.
