BEQASSOR by K. Amarnath
Director: K. Amarnath
In this Bollywood classic featuring musical interludes, Pramila (aka Esther Abraham), a Baghdadi Jewish star and the First Miss India (1947), plays a young, naïve girl caught in the cross-fire of a deep-rooted sibling rivalry between her upright husband and her scheming brother-in-law. The brother-in-law exploits the girls trusting nature to falsely implicate her husband in a corruption case, and turns husband against wife by wrongly defaming her character.
