Story

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 Kumar, 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 completely the last schedule on December 29. 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.
