Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se is a 1978 Hindi film loosely based on Erich Segal’s popular romantic novel Love Story. Unlike the novel, the parents of the Man approve of the relationship of the young couple and there period of hardship faced does not come till the end.



It was on a particular day in the college class room that they confronted each other. Arun, the only son of a Barrister father, the darling of all the male students - himself proud and over-confident, for the first time in his life, stood second in the Terminal Examination to Lily Fernandes, a shy, simple, modest girl - the daughter of an ordinary nurse in a private Nursing Home. The shock of the defeat was too much for Arun, and he took up a challenge -- even nursed a personal vendetta -- to bring down the growing popularity of Lily in the college. Lily, however, bore no malice against him, even tolerated all the sarcasm and nasty pranks of the close chums of Arun.

As time went on, they gradually discovered the basic qualities of their opponents, even one became the admirer of the other. They spent their off-days in outings in beautiful natural surroundings, singing and talking to each other. Lily's mother was the first person to notice that a deep love had developed between her daughter and Arun. She felt worried, because however good and deserving Arun may be as the prospective life-partner of her daughter, yet all the differences in social status, riches and religious faith could not possibly be bridged.One day, to her surprise, Arun's father himself walked in to their simple house with a proposal for marriage between Arun and Lily. The happiness of the young lovers knew no bounds.

But when everything was nicely set up for a happy ending, suddenly, Lily fell ill. Blood culture proved the case to be Leukemia. No efforts were spared to arrest the disease, and save the poor girl. Arun and Lily met and behaved with each other as if nothing has gone wrong, as if the world is as beautiful as it was all the time, as if they are to wait only a few days for her recovery and their happy union.

But all efforts failed. On a fateful evening, when the orange tint of the setting sun had spread its magic spell upon everything around, Lily Fernandes, a dreamy girl, who dreamt of nothing but goodness and innocent joys of life, breathed her last in the arms of her equally young and innocent lover. Before her death, she made him promise that he will go further up and up in life, so that from some other world the soul of Lily will eternally find peace and completion of her deepest love for her dearest one on earth!

Main cast




The movie was a much-needed exception to the traditional, monotonous Hindi films at that time. The tragic film astonishingly featured no villains.


Ravindra Jain composed the music and wrote the songs for this movie. The songs are considered to be the best in their genre. The title track is considered to be in the top 10 romantic bollywood songs. Ravindra Jain was nominated for Filmfare Awards in two categories for this song, namely, Best Lyricist and Best Musician.

  • Ankhiyon Ke Jharokon Se], the title song sung by Hemlata. This song has numerous references about looking near and far, Colours and other things which a blind person cannot possibly write.
  • Jaate Huye Yeh Pal Chin, sung by the composer Ravindra Jain himself.
  • 'Ek Din Tum Bahut Bare Banoge, Ek Din…
  • Kai Din Se Mujhe
  • Dohavali/Bade Badai Na Kare, Hemlata's final duet with Jaspal Singh. It is based on the dohas from historic Indian poets such as Rahim, Kabir, Tulsidas, and Bihari.


The film got nominations for Best Actress, Best Film, Best Direction categories in 1978 Filmfare Award but misses them all. Ranjeeta's poignant portrayal of the character was just awesome. She was considered a talented actress at that time and she had shown why that was so. She had delivered some other good films at that time frame like - Damaad (1978), Laila Majnu (1976).
