Purab Aur Pachhim - MOCE 4024 - (Condition - 85-90%) - Odeon First Pressing - LP Record

Purab Aur Paschim (English: East and West) is a 1970 Indian patriotic film. The movie was produced and directed by Manoj Kumar, and it stars Manoj Kumar, Saira Banu, Ashok Kumar, Pran and Prem Chopra in the lead roles. The music is by Kalyanji Anandji. This was the second film by Manoj Kumar where he stars as Bharat (first being Upkar) and his fourth film on patriotism (Shaheed was his first, to be followed by Roti Kapda Aur Makaan and Kranti.) In 1942 British India, Harnam (Pran) betrays a freedom fighter, and as a result is rewarded, but the freedom fighter is killed, leaving his wife, Ganga (Kamini Kaushal) and family devastated and destitute. Years later, after the Indian Independence in 1947, the freedom fighter's son, Bharat (Manoj Kumar), has grown up and goes to London for higher studies. On his arrival in Britain, He meets his father's college friend, Sharma (Madan Puri) with his westernized wife, Rita (Shammi) and daughter, Preeti (Saira Banu) and the hippie son, Shankar (Rajendra Nath). Preeti has long blonde hair, wears mini-dresses, smokes and drinks and has no idea of Indian values till she meets Bharat. He is, of course, shocked to see that many Indians in London are ashamed of their roots and even changed their names to sound Western. Or others who long for their country, but stay in the UK for economic reasons, like Sharma with his stack of KL Saigal records. He takes it upon himself to try and change their way of thinking, while both Bharat and Preeti fall in love with each other. Later on, with his mother's and Guruji (Ashok Kumar)'s approval, he promised to marry Preeti. Preeti is impressed by Bharat's idealism and wants to marry him, but doesn't want to live in India. Bharat wants her to come to India and see what it's like before she rejects it. The purity of India redeems her and she gives up smoking, drinking and minis to adopt the traditional lifestyle.
