Storyline

The Prasads live in Banaras circa 19th Century, and consist of Bhawani - a thug, who poses as a holy man, luring devotees and robbing them; his wife - who will have nothing to do with his ill-gotten gains; his son, Shankar - like his mother has distanced himself from crime; Shankar's wife and her three children: Kundan, Yashoda and Gopal. Bhawani forcibly takes Kundan with him to follow in his footsteps and forbids him from seeing the rest of the family. Kundan's childhood friend is Munni, an orphan, who leaves for Calcutta after being reunited with her biological parents. Then there is Bhawani's estranged brother, Naubatlal, and his two sons, Ganeshi and Dwarka. Naubatlal and Bhawani have hated each other, and things only get worse after Shankar gets killed, Bhawani claims that Naubatlal killed him, and has him killed. This causes deep strife within Bhawani's family, and he is left alone with only Kundan. Years later both the Prasad families have grown up - but their hatred has not ...

Dileep Kumar v/s Sanjeev Kumar (0-1)
15 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie (of only 3 I guess and my score is 0-3) where the acting greats Dileep Kumar and Sanjeev Kumar acted together. And I guess Sanjeev Kumar (in what ever limited opportunity he got he) just overshadowed Dileep Kumar (who incedently was rarely below average) and in this movie was a joy to watch.

We have another great actor Balraj Sahani and great actress Vaijayanthi Mala giving polished performances.

Dileep Kumar and Balraj Sahani belong to two feuding families (of a town on banks of Ganges). Sanjeev Kumar is younger brother of Balraj Sahani who talks to Dileep Kumar for reconciling but get killed by someone who does not want these to families to join hands. So there is more feud. Vaijanthi Mala plays a dancer who is desired by both Dileep Kumar and Balraj Sahani.

Great acting, good songs (and Dileep Kumar has danced well in Mere pairon main ghoongroo bandha de ...). But, story I would say is on known tracks.
