Kapoors sombre musical classic contrasts different notion of love. The rich and sensitive Pran (Kapoor) passionately loves the poor country girl Reshma (Nargis). Defying her fathers objections, who repudiates her, she runs to Pran but apparently drowns on the way. Pran and his philadering friend Gopal (Premnath), who calloulsy jilted the village girl Neela (Nimmi), are driving through the country and happen upon Rashmas wedding to the obessive fisherman (Singh) who saved her and believes he owns her. Pran crashes his car, stops the wedding and gets Reshma while the repentant Gopal finds that Neela has killed herself. Kapoors 2nd independent production starring himself and Nargis was the R.K. Studios first major hit. Its unusually innovative chiaroscuro cinematography (e.g for Lata Mangeshkar and Mukeshs song Chhod gaye balam) created deep rather than laterally elaborated spaces and relied heavily on metaphor, as in the shot where the angled rope cut off by Reshmas father aligns with the angle of the violin bow with which Pran nightly serenades Resham (playing the Anniversary Song from The Jolson Story, 1946). The dominat metaphor for the flow of desire, evoked by the title, is that of water, of the love sequences after the song Mujhe kissie pyar ho gaya (Lata Mangeshkar) with the waterfall, or the last shot when the smoke from Neelas funeral pyre merges with the rain clouds. The film is remembered above all for Shankar-Jaikrishnans music, with numerous alltime hits, including the opening number Hawa mein udta jaye mera lal dupatta and Jiya bekarar hai, Barsat mein humse kile, Meri aankhon mein bas gaya koi re, Ab mera kaun sahara (all sung by Lata Mangeshkar The specially charged Kapoor-Nargis love duets (of the Pyar hua ikraar hua song in Shri 420, 1955) were often singled out as exemplifying the acme of the Indian cinemas romance.
