Storyline

Shekhar's (Raj Kapoor) maternal grandmother Nani (Lalita Pawar) is a very loving person, and loves Shekhar dearly as a mother. She is also very religious and firm in her beliefs. She believes that every man must have a male heir to carry on the family's name. Therefore, she will only permit Shekhar to marry a woman who will bear him a son. Shekhar presents his Nani with Sunita (Waheeda Rehman), the girl he plans to marry. Nani finds out that Sunita cannot bear any children and disapproves of her. Shekar and Sunita marry anyway, and to pacify Nani, pretend that a friend's son is their's. But for how long will the shrewd Nani allow the wool to be pulled over her eyes?

A bad misogynist film
2 December 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I bought the DVD on impulse, seeing that Waheeda Rehman was in the movie and the price was very cheap. However, the film itself is a huge disappointment. It starts with an elderly woman looking for a possible suitor for her grandson. The condition is that the suitor will have to bear a male heir. It gave the impression that the film would deal with people's (society) preference for male child over a female. The film then shifts into a romantic movie about Waheeda Rehman's and Raj Kapoor's characters. Then it gets more serious as it becomes about a couple trying to make a living. From there it shifts to a comedy about the same couple fooling the grandmother.

The film lacks focus and coherence. The direction is very poor. The ending is horrendous and shows the film to be very misogynistic. The songs are too many. Although they are pleasant, they're not memorable. Personally, i only liked the title song.

The performances range from mediocre to bad. Raj Kapoor is pretty bad and he dances horribly. Lalita Pawar is pretty much the same as in all her films. Waheeda Rehman does reasonably well but this is not among her best.

This is one film that should be avoided. I wish that I could find someone so that I can give away the DVD as I want to get rid of it.
