Maryada is one of the initial films signed by the Super Star of all times Rajesh Khanna and he is paired with Mala Sinha. Raajumar is there in the movie too. In fact RaajKumar has the lead role with Rajesh Khanna playing the second fiddle. But Rajesh Khanna leaves his mark in this movie and ends up giving a good tough time to RaajKumar. Mala Sinha’s role gets subdued between the two great actors. The music by Kalyajni Anandji is great and there are good numbers of Kishore Kumar and Mukesh which were picturized on Rajesh Khanna. It is a must see for Rajesh Khanna fans as he performs well in front of two senior actors- RaajKumar and Mala Sinha.
