It belongs to the comparatively rare category of “Muslim social” (cf. chaudvin ka chand), which offers a contemporary and essentially secular tale centered around main characters who happen to be south Asian Muslims. Fairly realistically depicts their cultural and social life. And features chaste and elegant Urdu/Hindi with a rich Persian resonance.

It offers three notably strong female characters. Superbly played by talented actresses. Including the incomparable madhubala. Then at the height of her career (cf. mughal-e-azam)

It has a memorable score, with lyrics by the great sahir ludhianvi (an Urdu poet doubtless most in his element when as here composing for a film about Urdu poets). Sung by a stellar list of playback singers and culminating in a series of dazzling Qawwali performances (of love-saturated and Sufi-inflected couplets on the pleasures and pains of love) that are among the best ever filmed.
