Umrao Jaan (1981)

A courtesan who is always unlucky in love.

A power-packed performance by Rekha. She has never looked more stunning and more tragic than in this role. It was as if director Muzzafar Ali had crafted this part for her alone.

Rekha's depiction of a lovelorn, lonely soul clearly surpassed Suraiya's Shama that was made earlier on the same subject.
