Not many period dramas in India get their period details right.  I am not sure a leg of mutton sleeve blouse was the way to go in 1942 but its the evoked emotion rather than authenticity that matters in film. And this is a fair bit of effort for Bollywood.

This film did not eventually feature Ms Dixit but she looks quite radiant in this photoshoot.
