It had a bold theme where incestuous relationship was tackled for the first time in Hindi Cinema and had trend setting music by Maestro S. D. Burman.
7 January 1999 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Apart from the good direction of Raj Khosla, and good performances by the lead players, Dev Anand and Suchitra Sen, the music by S. D. Burman was the highlight of the movie. Three songs particularly stand out. "Chal ri sajni, ab kya soche", by Mukesh, "Saathi na koi manzil, diya hai na koi mehfil" by Mohd. Rafi and "Deewana mastana hua Dil" by Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle.
