An Awesome Movie!
27 April 2011 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

It's a Typical Bollywood movie with a Beautiful Storyline and The BEST Soundtrack Ever! RD Burman is at his Musical Best with songs such as "Chura Liya Hai Tumne" and "Yaadon Ki Baaraat". Nasir Hussain's Films are known for their Beautiful Storyline and music. This is also Aamir Khan's Debut Film where he plays the young Ratan. - Fun fact

The Story is about a typical Indian Family with a tragic twist. The three brothers whose parents get killed in their childhood grow up separately in different circumstances without knowing anything about each others whereabouts. Shankar turns into a thief and sets out to find who his parents' killer was. Vijay was adopted by a rich man's care-keeper and Ratan starts a band and becomes a singer in a hotel. Much of the film revolves around Shankar's quest to find the guy who killed his parents and get revenge and Vijay trying to woo Sunita, played by the Beautiful Zeenat Aman. Zeenat Aman (My Favorite Actress) plays the daughter of the rich man, who is being wooed by Vijay, the middle brother and later eventually falls for him. Vijay (a total happy-go-lucky boy) at his Handsome best is a total prankster, trying to get the sympathy of Sunita by making her believe he has cancer :D, puncturing tires, and stealing food of two fat men. Vijay's Flirting with Sunita is to be mentioned.

The music is the main driving force of the movie. The first scene is family reunion in which all members sing a family song - Yaadon Ki Baarat… which is kept close to the brothers' hearts but all this is just a prelude to the real element of the story, the murder of the parents.

Shakaal, The Parents' murderer is at his villainous best. He's very haughty and stylish and cares a lot about being fashionable, as he does about stealing and selling the stolen goods to foreigners. He later appoints Shankar as a thief for various petty thefts; later on both of them recognize the other.

Well, after all this, it would be really bad not to describe the dashing and groovy song "Chura Liya". The song picturised on Zeenat Aman(Sunita) and Vijay Arora(Vijay) won the hearts of millions, it is beautifully picturised on her strumming a guitar trying to woo Vijay. The other Song "Meri Soni Meri Tamanna" is a song in which Vijay Apologizes to Sunita for all the petty pranks.

In all, Yaadon Ki Baaraat is a fun-filled film. It has all the things you'd expect from a Typical 70s film. OUTSTANDING music, Romance, Action, comedy, Crazy and Wacky dance moves and especially its funky costumes. It really lives up to mark of a cult-classic film, and has a little something for everyone. The dialogues are impressive and witty. A fantastic entertainer for everyone to watch. For Everything else, you Guys have to Watch the movie!
