I am amazed you liked the song and dance mystery romance cum ghost story. It is one of my favorites. Vyjayantimala is one of the best dancers as well as great beauties. I have seen several of Bimal Roy's movies who was known as a social critic. Some of the good ones are Do Bigha Zamin, Sujatha, Bandini, Parineeta, Yahudi and Kabuliwala which is a very good adaptation of Tagore's heart rending story.
His movies are also well known for the many melodious Hindi songs in them. The songs of Madhumati are favorites in Bollywood even after 65 years.
