Storyline

Navendu was a young motherless boy when his father married again. The step-mother saw the fear and doubt in the eyes of the boy and she promised him that he will be like a real son to her. 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)

Excellent family drama with memorable songs
22 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of Raj Khosla's best movies - and a formula that has been tried again many times over the years, but old is gold. The movie is excellent family viewing with no nudity or scenes unsuitable for kids, it is a story that the whole family can relate to about 3 brothers and the inclusion of new family member and the effects this has on the household. To top a very good story the film is packed with excellent songs tuned by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The gem of all tracks is the fantastic duet "Dil Ne dil ko pukara" by the Late Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar. Very melodious and you can almost hear Rafi and Lata enjoying the song. "Yeh Reshmi Zulfen" by Mohammed Rafi has also stood the test of time and can still be enjoyed now.
