Many years later his father on his death-bed took another promise from young Navendu, a promise to look after his step-brothers and sisters and step-mother, as if they were all of one blood. Navendu kept up his promise till they all grew up and he was like a father to them. Soon the day, came when the young brothers and sisters stood at the same window of life from where they have to select the Road of Sacrifice And the Road of Selfishness. The story of Do Raaste is the Drama of those brothers and sisters who take the different roads. It is the drama of their love and hatred. It is the Drama of a rich girl's love for a poor boy. It is the drama of today's middle class trying to find the right road along which to travel the mortal journey of life. It is the drama of life itself. Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Very Good Family drama
27 January 2006 | by (Rourkela, India) – See all my reviews

"Do Raaste" portrays the aspirations & disappointments of a middle class family. The head of the Gupta family, Balraj Sahni manages with great difficulty to educate Prem Chopra, his younger brother abroad for which he had to mortgage his ancestral home. Prem Chopra returns and marries Bindu a rich girl. Tensions arise due to Bindu's behaviour and Prem & wife shift to a new home. Prem, who has got a very good job refuses to share Balraj's burden. The tired old Balraj, who has lost his job, is not able to repay back the loan and is kicked out of his home along with his family. This devastates Balraj. In the end Prem realizes that he has stopped loving his family due to Bindu's machinations and reconciles with Balraj.

The film revolves around Balraj -his hopes, responsibilities, aspirations & misfortunes. The romance of Rajesh Khanna & Mumtaz is incidental to the script but provides lilting songs. The brilliant script & Raj Khosla's superb direction holds the viewer's interest.
