There are ever so many instances in the history of cinema where a movie, despite being worthy, failed to grab the attention of the audience of its time. The 1951 Hindi film Shokhian, directed and scripted by Kidar Sharma, is one such movie that was overlooked by the audience of that time.
Each and every frames of the film mirror the genius of this great director who presented us movies like Neel Kamal, Bawre Nain, Jogan, Chitralekha and Kaajal. Shokhian stars
Suraiya, Premnath, Kamlesh Kumari and Jeevan in lead roles.
Music was composed by Jamal Sen and the lyrics were penned by Kidar Sharma himself. Suraiya has rendered her voice to some of the hit songs of this movie.
