Movie, Amar Prem : themes of mother-worship & woman's limitless capacity to endure suffering. The film portrays d decadence of human values & relationships and contrasts it by presenting an illustrious example of a young boy's(Rajesh khanna) innocent love for neighbourhood courtesan, Pushpa. What Pushpa (Sharmila tagore) does is laugh and play when life permits & cry & sorrow when life is bad to her. The final shot with Anand waving to Pushpa & Nandu as the latter takes her home on the feast of Durga Pooja is so touching that I could not control my tears...Your comments on amar prem pl

It is a classic not only by protryal of human emotions but the theme of songs of the film is par excellence too. "** Chingari koi bharke toh saawan use bujhaye, saawan jo agan lagaye, usey kaun bujhaye....** ** Kuchh toh log kahenge... logon ka kaam hai kehna, chhoro bekaar ki baaton mein, beet naa jaye raina.... Reet jagat ki aisi hai, jahan ek subah ki saam hui, kaun hai tu tera naam hai kya, Seeta bhi yahan badnaam hui....**
No wonder, many even today, cries with so wonderful a theme. Human values and relations are wonderfully portrayed by RK and Sharmila. The beauty of a film becomes more larger when audience identifies love, sorrow, laugh, tears etc for oneself. And Amar Prem just falls into that catagory.
A very well made film, really.

I had seen that movie about 4 to 5 times so far.
It was one of the best movies of Rajesh Khanna and a class of it's own.
there are so many touching scenes in it.

Amar Prem contends that true emotional fulfillment need not necessarily lie in a fructified relationship which ends with a marriage and the average two kids; it can also be found in a nameless bond between a man and a woman that transcends convention.
Famous Dialogue: Pushpa, I hate tears. Inhe ponch dalo.

Amar prem was a great film and Sharmila t and R khanna acted very well. in the worst of the situations a woman can suffer and try to relief by seeing the pathetic scene where her real husbend would be in his death bed and thus facing the reality and ..getting a good soul in the form of hero..RK..a neighbour..and pacifying the ..lady..and bringing back her son ..nandu..at the end and the way story was portrayed was good with nice songs ..sung by KK and lathaji..music SD burmanji..all these gave the film ..nice /a true love..Amar prem ..at the end with the milap of son with Maa..

Decadence works both ways.
A man would put himself to debt for life to enable his daughter to get married honorably.
Amar Prem brought out the reality of stark evil, of an uncle selling his neice to a brothel.The drunk lovable and unhappily married Rajesh Khanna, is way off the mark compared to the indignities of brothel life Pushpa (Sharmila Tagore) has to face. The brutality of such life has been powdered over, to hide the harsh truth.
