Mirza Sahiban (1957)

  • LanguageHindi

The Punjab, land of five rivers, is just proud to have given birth to the tales of immortal love. Mirza and Sahiban were two such lovers, whose hearts yearned to merge with each other. Their love flourished under the deep shadows of Banyan trees, among the orchards of rose and lily flowers and fields of wheat and cotton in full bloom.

But as ill luck always shadows lovers.

Mehri, the mother of Sahiban opposed this sacred union vehemently in the name of family prestige. As a result, arms were drawn by Mir, Shamir (Brothers of Sahiban) and Tahir (her would be husband) against MIRZA.

What befell the two great lovers in this saga of love, hate and revenge can only be revealed by silver screen.
