Gomti Ke Kinare is a 1972 Bollywood drama film directed by Saawan Kumar Tak in a directorial debut. The film stars Meena Kumari and Mumtaz. It was the last release of Meena Kumari, and was released posthumously. She shot the film through her failing health end 1971, and was apprehensive whether she would be able to complete the filming. Eventually, she did with the last schedule on 29 December. However, despite the music score by R.D. Burman, the film failed at the box office.
Amitabh Bachchan was being considered (to play hero opposite Mumtaz) by Saawan Kumar and Meena Kumari. However Mumtaz, who was close to the Khan brothers those days, recommended Sameer Khan, and the audience missed the golden opportunity to see Amitabh along with legendary Meena Kumari.
Sameer lives a poor lifestyle in Bombay with his mother, Ganga, and maternal uncle, Nekiram. Nekiram works at a Petrol Pump, and his mother paints pictures and statuettes of Hindu deities. Sameer grows up, becomes an Engineer, and lands a job with Khosla Enterprises, which is run by Chairman Gopaldas Khosla, where he proves his abilities and is soon promoted as Chief Engineer, gets bungalow to live in as well as a fancy car. He meets with Roshni, the daughter of Gopaldas, both fall in love, and soon get engaged. His idyllic lifestyle is shattered when a rival businessman, Chaganmal, alleges that Sameer's mother was actually Gangabai, a Lucknow-based Courtesan, who was never married, and that Nekiram is not his maternal uncle.Meena Kumari as GangaAgha as NekiramJalal Agha as DhobiHarbans Darshan M.
