IMDb Review 1:
Mamta (1966) is a remake of the Bengali film Uttarfalguni (1963). The story is heartbreaking and tells the sacrifice of a mother for her child's upbringing. Suchtitra Sen as both the mother and the daughter played the dual role with perfection. It was so perfect that most of the time you forget that the two women are the same person. Asit Sen who also directed the Bengali version did a commendable job in presenting the story in a very compelling as well as in well restrained manner. The story moves well and as it progresses it gets more interesting. I have seen many Suchitra Sen's films and I think this is one of best performances. Ashok Kumar as the lawyer, friend and guardian of Suparna, daughter of Devjani gave a splendid performance.Mamta torrent.
