a failed giant.....good subject but poorly made......
3 October 2016 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

The film pays tribute to the most respectable profession, medical. The film had one of the greatest screen pair, Sunil Dutt and Waheeda Rehman, who give powerful performances this time also. Besides, the film has brief but nice roles from Ashok Kumar, Jalaal Agha, Deb Mukherjee, and Fardia Jalaal too. Everything seems fine, but still the film doesn't work. The film was a major flop that time; and the reason seems obvious that it fails to captivate the interest. First the theme doesn't look very clear. It dwindles from caste system of the society, medical profession to a melodrama; and nowhere the focus remains sharp. There are also plenty of flaws in direction. For instance, Sunil Dutt's get up and looks remain constant despite the time period of 8 years when he grows from a student to an experienced doctor. His dialogue delivery was also constant throughout. The music and songs aren't memorable despite SD Burman's enchanting voice and music. Ramesh Dev's role was a wash out nor the cameo of Ashok Kumar was something brilliant. To appreciate, there were less of the formulaic sequences or flights from the regular '70s flick. Overall, it's such film which though had big names and a good subject still doesn't work due to the poor film making.
