Storyline

Anandi has been a widow for several years, living all herself in a small village. One day out of the blue comes Arun Gupta, claiming to her relative, and literally begs her to come to live with him and his family in the city, which she does. Once in the city, she finds out that things are not the same as in the village, there is very little or no compassion, violence, gang-fights, and children being abused. She befriends one such abused child and attempts to bring him to the Gupta family, and she finds out that she is not welcome there anymore. She finds out that Arun had actually brought her to the city, not of pity, love or compassion, but for doing household duties, and baby-sitting, without any wages. She moves out and lives in a broken-down structure with the homeless child, hoping and waiting that someday, someone will actually come for her, and claim her as family.

Wonderful Movie, Great Direction
21 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is not the only movie which highlights the topics of unemployment or gang war or politics in colonies, election, etc. There are lots of other movies like Leader, Haasil, Ankush and kaala Bazaar, but believe me guys and girls this is unique and best among all. Story revolves around an old lady (Meena Kumari) who is trying to make peace between two gangs. Vinod Khanna is the leader of one gang, but a very kindhearted person. Flashback story of his and his lost love Yogita Bali was the best thing in the whole movie, that turns his life upside down. Shatrughan Sinha is the leader of other gang. The move shows lots of street wars between these gangs. Meena Kumari cares for all of them, and teaches them to stop fighting, and make friendship with each other. Performance wise Vinod Khanna is best among all as a heartbroken lover and gang leader, Shatrughan Sinha also did his best. Meena Kumari was excellent in such a brief role. Supporting cast includes Paintal, Asrani, Dannie, Yogita Bali, did their best. Direction of Gulzar was perfect.
