Anita is a romantic drama movie released in 1967, directed by Raj Khosla and produced by Lekhraj Khosla. The movie features Sadhana Shivdasani, Manoj Kumar, and I.S. Johar in lead roles. The movie revolves around Anita, a young girl who lives with her father, who runs a small hotel. Anita's father owes a lot of money to a wealthy businessman, and in return, the businessman eyes Anita as a possible love interest. However, Anita is already in love with a young man named Deepak.

Deepak is a struggling writer who lives in the same hotel as Anita. He is poor and cannot support Anita financially, which becomes a bone of contention between them. However, despite their differences, they remain in love with each other.

The story takes a turn when Deepak leaves for Mumbai, hoping to make it big as a writer. In his absence, Anita's father dies, leaving her alone and vulnerable. The businessman sees this as an opportunity to get closer to Anita and proposes to her. In order to secure her financial future, Anita agrees to marry him.

However, things take a dramatic turn when Deepak comes back to the village as a successful writer. Anita realizes her true feelings for Deepak and decides to break her engagement with the businessman. This leads to a bitter confrontation between the two men, and a heart-wrenching climax ensues.

Anita is a beautifully crafted movie that captures the essence of love and sacrifice. The movie's soundtrack, composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, adds to its appeal. The song 'Aahon Mein Aaye Tum' remains one of the most memorable romantic songs in Bollywood history.

Sadhana Shivdasani's portrayal of Anita is remarkable, as she seamlessly transitions from a naive village girl to a strong, independent woman. Her chemistry with Manoj Kumar is the highlight of the movie, and their on-screen romance is palpable.

Manoj Kumar's performance as Deepak is equally impressive. His portrayal of a struggling writer, who is trying to make it big in Mumbai, strikes a chord with the audience. I.S. Johar's role as Anita's father adds a touch of humor to the movie and balances out the emotional drama.

Overall, Anita is a must-watch for anyone who loves romantic dramas. It is a movie that will leave you with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart.
