Storyline

Although well qualified, Ram Chand is unable to obtain suitable employment, and works as a peon in an organization. One day he meets with Ravi Chand, who is on the verge of committing suicide, he counsels him against this, as well as permits him to live with him. Ravi gets employed in the same office as Ram, albeit as a Manager, and falls in love and marries a co-worker named Lata. Ram's parents would like him to get married too, and he goes to see them and meets his bride-to-be, Kusum Sharma. Ram sends a photograph of Kusum for approval to Ravi and Lata, and is disappointed to learn that Ravi does not approve of Kusum. When Ram attempts to find out the reason behind his disapproval, Ravi gives very elusive responses, and Ram takes it upon himself to find out why Ravi disapproves of Kusum so much. It is then Ram will come to know of the shocking truth behind the relationship between Kusum and Ravi, and about Kusum's reputation. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

First and last movie starring Bachchan and Tanuja as romantic leads.
1 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First and last movie starring Bachchan and Tanuja as romantic leads. This movie has a simple story line.

Ram Chand (Amitabh Bachchan) is elder brother of Ravi Chand (Anil Dhawan). Ram is moderately educated where Ravi is highly educated. They work in the same office where Ram is Peon and Ravi is Boss.

This is one of the early movies of Amitabh Bachchan and he is sensible and sensitive in underplaying this demanding role. Tanuja plays role of a lively girl with ease. Looks like its in genes - her daughter Kajol has delighted us in many such roles she played. Even Anil Dhawan (does any one remember him?) has played his role with dignity.

Apart from this you can't say much for or against it. The simple story line also means that the much of glitter and glamor is missing (except for again what Tanuja provides). That explains why the movie was not a commercial success, but again it is not bad experience to watch it.
