Milan is a 1967 Hindi film directed by Adurthi Subba Rao. It was a remake of his hit Telugu film Mooga Manasulu (1963) and was produced by L. V. Prasad. The film stars Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Jamuna (reprising her role from the original Telugu version), Pran and Deven Varma. The award-winning and very popular music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is among the earliest films to deal with the theme of reincarnation.
Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, begins a new life in a new body. This doctrine is a central tenet of the Indian religions. It is also a common belief of various ancient and modern religions such as Spiritism, Theosophy, and Eckankar and is found in many tribal societies around the world, in places such as Siberia, West Africa, North America, and Australia.
Two college students (Sunil Dutt and Nutan) are getting married. Since both were talented students, their college holds a little function for them. After the function, they head for their honeymoon through a road passing through a small hamlet. Their car breaks down, they stop for a while and suddenly the hero starts having visions. He asks local people about certain landmarks of the village; landmarks the couple wouldn’t have known since they were destroyed years before they were even born.
While trying to find the explanation, the couple realize that their story starts well before their birth dates. Milan is a story of two lovers killed tragically in a past life and reunited where it all started.
