Storyline

A man (Amitabh Bachchan) is found wounded on railway tracks and when he awakens he has no memory of who he is and doesn't remember anything about his life. Six years later he is living with a wealthy couple and is now named Naresh Dutt. One day he begins to regain his memory when he watches a film and realizes that the actress in the film is related to him somehow. It is then that he discovers the actress in the film is none other than his wife Rekha Roy (Rekha). He finds out that she is now a very successful film actress changing her name to Sunita Devi and her manager is none other than Ranjeet Malik (Prem Chopra) who used to be his best friend. In flashbacks he remembers that his real name is Amit Roy and Ranjit was the one who attempted to kill him six years earlier by throwing him off the train he was traveling on with Rekha. Amit also discovers that his young son who is now 10 years old has been sent to a boarding school and sets out a plan to regain custody of his son. First ...

Drama unfolded
21 July 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Do Anjaane is a classic case of a badly written short story made into an above average, watchable film. The plot is dramatic, and at the same time, taut. This film was Dulal Guha's attempt at serious cinema and he came out with flying colors thanks to the contribution of Nabebdu Ghosh who single-handedly re-wrote the story by Dr Nihar Ranjan Gupta (published in a Bengali magazine) and gave the script a generous iota of crispness.

The film tells recounts the story of a middle class couple (Amit Roy & Rekha) in Calcutta, who are forced to go different ways thanks to the intrusion of a Mr Ranit Mallick (wonder why Dulal Guha chose this name, as an actor of the same name is one of the premier stars of Bengal!), till they are united , courtesy their only son, Mithun.

It touches upon the various vignettes of a husband-wife relationship who dream of making it big. Paradoxically, the relationship turns sour and dark when the dreams are fulfilled, till the happy ending which appears forced upon to satisfy the average audience.

A must see for Amitabh fans and Hindi film lovers who see a world outside the common trash churned out in Bollywood.
