Trivia

Yash Chopra wanted Laxmikant Pyarelal for the film. Lyricist Sahir was against the idea because he did not believe Laxmikant Pyarelal could do justice to his lyrics. He told Yash Chopra to sign another composer or give him back his songs. See more »

Quotes

Amitabh Malhotra: [singing at the beginning of the film] I am a poet only for a few moments, / My tale will be over in a few moments, / My laughter lasts only for a few moments, / My youth will end in a few moments. / I am a poet only for a few moments, / Many poets came and went before me / Some left sighing, / And some left singing, / Their story only lasted a few moments / I too will only live a few moments. / Tomorrow I will be taken from you, / But for today, I am yours. / I am a poet only for a few moments,...

One of The Best Movies Ever From The 1970's
9 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein" who can forget that song by the late Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. I first saw this movie in the mid 1970's when it was first released. The cinemas were totally packed - "House Full." The songs were already famous before the release of the movie.

Amit Malhotra, recites one of his poems at a college / university where he meets Pooja" and they both fall in love. But parents have other plans and Pooja gets married to an architect, Vijay Khanna while Amit returns home and joins his father's business - a construction company. As time passes, Pooja and Vijay have a son, Vikram, also known as "Vicky", who falls in love with Pinky Kapoor while studying and the two plan to get married. The two families meet and realise that Pinky is Doctor R.P Kapoor's daughter and that Vijay is his patient. In the meantime, Pooja who has her own TV show, interviews Amit Malhotra, who informs her that he has given up writing poetry. In the meantime, Doctor R.P. Kapoor informs his wife that he is worried about what Vijay will think when he finds out about Pinky's past.

"Kabhi Kabhie," directed by Yash Chopra, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee Gulzar, Shashi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Parikshit Sahni, Simi Garewall and Nasreen. Ifteqar and Deven Varma make a special appearance.

This movie is "poetry in motion" totally and that is not to mention the acting, the story, cinema photography and lastly the songs. This is a typical Yashraj film where the scenery is concerned - mountains and snow.

Conclusion: This is a worthwhile to watch whenever you have the chance for "Love Is Life."
