a good movie
4 June 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good one starring Nazir,Sunil Dutt,Asha Parekh and Nirupa Roy.The movie on the whole belongs to Nirupa Roy who gives a wonderful performance as a mother who leaves her daughter to a rich man's doorstep and meanwhile asks him for employment which she gets.The girl grows and thinks of her as her maid and she lives with this fact all along.Sunil Dutt gives a bravo performance as a poor music teacher who teaches Asha Parekh and consequently falls in love with her.Asha Parekh also gives a decent performance and so does Nazir.I would rate this movie as 8 out of 10 since it has a good story with good performances and songs like "Itna Na Mujhse Tu Pyar Badha".
