Sangam (1964)

With adolescence coming on, Sundar develops an obsessive romantic attraction to Radha, who in turn prefers the third in the friendly trio, Gopal. Since Gopal himself reciprocates the attachment a love triangle inevitably surfaces. Eventually, Gopal decides to sacrifice his love for his friend's sake.
