    Dulhan ek raat ki is a heart-breaking but ultimately very sweet movie about pure love being destroyed by an act of wretched callousness, and how it changes the lives of those involved. Nutan is just lovely, playing all the right notes and proving once again that she was one of the great Hindi actresses. Dharmendra is very charming as the simple but good-hearted guy head over heels for Nutan's character. They have great chemistry. The songs are wonderful, especially "ek haseen shaam ko" and "sapno mein agar mere". The story moves at an adequate pace without rushing events. A nice trip back to when love and affection could be expressed completely without being vulgar.
