Storyline

Subeer Kumar (Amitabh) is well on his way to becoming India's top pop singer. He has no intention of getting married, but when he goes to visit his Durga Mausi (Mausi=mother's sister), he falls in love with religious, simple Uma, by whose voice he's enchanted. He marries her and returns to Bombay where he announces that he will never sing without Uma again. However, Subeer encourages Uma to sing alone and when her popularity is soon greater than his own, the seed of jealousy begins to grow... The major difference between Uma and Subeer is that she sings for herself, whereas he sings for the public. It is the difference between geet and sangeet. This is the root of the thing that later causes problems, and based on which the movie is named. Written by Gita Lal <trinetri@i-2000.com>

Pride comes before a fall...
1 August 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

An enchanting film with notable songs tells the story of one man's ego & the lengths he is prepared to go to protect it. If that means putting his marriage at risk along the possibility of raising future generations than that is the price he is willing to pay. His wife (Jaya Bhaduri) in an effort to shield her husbands pride (Abhimaan) is prepared to give up her music in which she excels at to protect the relationship they have. But her husband seeing this as sympathy & is not willing to accept her sacrifice. Things spiral out of control affecting her mental state as she blames herself for the breakdown of their relationship. Eventually when her husband comes to his senses realising his mistake he rehabilitates her & they are reunited once again. Music remains the bond that brought them together which will always remain so, that will keep them from ever parting...

An excellent musical score from the maestro S.D. Burman breathes new life into the songs within the film which are given a new dimension. Hrishikesh Mukherjee's direction is second to none proving once again to be one of the leading directors from the 70's.
