Many more misunderstandings follow and the Nawab is never able to come in front of Jameela. But things turn for the worse when one day he meets her in Aslam's house and without thinking twice tells his friend that she is the woman he is passionate about. Aslam, without reasoning with his friend and telling him the truth, decides to give up his love. He starts visiting a courtesan and distances himself from Jameela, who finds it weird that Aslam has changed so much. She grieves over his lack of attention with Badle badle mere sarkar (Lata Mangeshkar) while Aslam plunges into sorrow in the courtesan's realm as she sways to the scintillating Dil ki kahani (Asha Bhonsle), picturised on the fantastic Minoo Mumtaz.
I always felt that Waheeda Rehman looked the best in her black and white films. When colours came into Hindi films, she was just a watered down version of her earlier attractive self. In this film, she is playful at first but then when she starts sermonising she appears too weak. Like when she chides her brothers when they come to harm him. She tells them that no matter how much she is wronged by her husband, she will continue serving him. How regressive!!!
