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 »

Terrible - even for the time and for Bollywood
5 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK - this film is worth seeing because indeed, the poetry and music is superb. But puhleez! the acting is below par or perhaps it's due to the weak script. The story has potential, but its execution is lacking.

I did appreciate, and still do, a good love story, and this it has, but it's an immature story never properly realised on the screen; perhaps the re-make will finally fulfull this potential.

I know a number of Indians that adore this film - perhaps, my not liking it is my exposure to other foreign films and India's limitations on imported cinema in that time period and thus, their exposure to 'higher-quality' cinema. I do know that even a lot of the sappy love stories done now in Bollywood I really like... but this... sorry!

The individual song, "Kabhi Kabhie" is wonderful esp. the remix done by Bally Sagoo - search the net for it - his mix is excellent.
