captivating movie, pretty good
12 September 2002 | by (Rochester, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1999 and saw it again and my thoughts haven't changed much.

Positives:

This is certainly a movie for those of you who like films to delve into the psyche of human beings-- and what interesting creatures we mortals be. The beginning was a bit typical, but as the story unfolds (and folds upon its unfortunate players), the twists of plot are very interesting and make the normally stale 3 hours of typical indian-movie-watching into a pretty enjoyable experience with this movie. The acting by Waheeda Rehman and Dilip Kumar is wonderfully subtle. And don't flinch because it was made before you were born! It deserves an 8/10.

Negatives:

The main downsides are that the very beginning was weak, the songs aren't that great, and its emphasis on self-sacrifice is a little typical. It seems a lot of the earlier indian movies (60's/70's-ish, and even Souten and Sharabi in the 80's) had characters who were prepared to flay themselves for others -- that martyr-like characterization does get redundant. Still, Souten and Sharabi were a great movies and so is this one.
