A handsome swindler from Bombay (Dev Anand) goes after a naive girl in a fishing village (Geeta Bali), who won’t believe the warnings of his previous victim. More interesting in parts than as a whole, this 1952 Indian musical by Guru Dutt incorporates elements of melodrama and film noir and ends with a Hollywood western shoot-out. Its symbolism can be heavy-handed (the victim gets tangled in a fishing net just as the swindler is winning her heart), but the musical numbers are fetching, and there’s a visually dynamic scene in which a dramatic conversation is interrupted by the movements of a Ferris wheel. In Hindi with subtitles. 121 min.
