Trivia

The film had been written with Rakhee Gulzar in mind, and she had agreed to do it during the making of Daag: A Poem of Love (1973), but before production started she married Gulzar, who wanted her to retire from acting. Yash Chopra persuaded Gulzar to let her do the film. See more »

Quotes

Pooja Khanna: We were not like you: saying "Hi" in the morning - drinking tea together in the afternoon - getting engaged by the evening!
Vikram Khanna: For six months you caught glimpses of each other through a window - after a year, "Hello, how are you? Good weather we're having!" and making a plan to look in each other's eyes. Then when you were ready to talk about love you found out that the girl's parents had fixed her marriage to someone else and the poor lover boy was left in the lurch!

Kabhi Kabhi – Sometimes life comes in full circle!
6 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kabhi Kabhi – Sometimes life comes in full circle! Amit (Amitabh) loves Pooja (Rakhee) since college days.

Pooja gets married to Vijay (Shashi) and conceives Vicky (Rishi).

Vicky falls in love with Pinky (Neetu) – an adopted daughter of the Kapoors.

Pinky is the illegitimate (pre-marital sex locha) child of Anjali (Waheeda).

Anjali is wife of Amit! Anjaili gives birth (legitimate this time)to Sweetie after sleeping with Amit (her husband).

Sweetie falls in love with Vicky! Vicky rejects Sweetie – earning the wrath of Amit – for Amit was a failure in love himself and it hurt him to see that Sweetie would have to live-on with unrequited love – more or less like father, like daughter – also like mother – since her mother (Waheeda) too had been in love with someone else and was afraid to confess to Amit about her pre-marital sex, pregnancy and even delivery! Such a huge secret was hidden by Waheeda!! So a sad Amit reluctantly married an even sadder Waheeda (she was a mother after all who had given birth to a 'nanhi-pari' but never could shower her love on her – sob-sniff) and they 'copulated' lovelessly – thereby giving birth to an entity like Sweetie – whose love for Vicky went unrequited! Like Parent, Like Children – amazing huh!!

Mind it – a 1976 film – pre-marital sex and associated lochas are ramphant – why on earth do the oldies scream and shout at the youngsters saying that the current generation has gone to the dogs! Even they were not adhering to chastity or virginity – how come they expect their sons and daughters...kith and kin to behave all nice and decent and chaste!? Pooja's heart, mind and soul remains with Amit – body with Vijay. Only Vijay is the one who seems to not have had any locha affair – but what does he get as a reward? Pooja's body – well most Indian husbands will quite agree that it is enough – heart, mind and soul are difficult things to handle – it is better that the female handles it all alone – which maximum wives do by dwelling in their reverie – with some distant (existing or non-existing) dream lover!

Life & Compromise - So Pathetic Indeed!
