This is a different Hrishikesh Mukherjee. This movie where empathises with
the Indian musicians on one hand, also brings out the tale of a son of a
rich father who takes a stand against his father. The movie has some
beautiful music (mostly light Hindustani classical) and of course has the
battle to live poor and dying than to ask support from the
Can't say its a must-see for everybody. I don't even know why I love it so much other than the music. But still there is something in it that brings me back at it, probably my respect for the musicians or probably my lack of strength to take a stand like that.
This movie is great masterpiece. Light Hindustani Classical beautifully
rendered by Yesudas, Lata and others. On the top of it, all the
relationships between different characters. Amazing performance by all
stars. In one of the scenes Amitabh (as Alok) gives ride to his father
and Om Prakash and quite exchange of quotes there
Amitabh is at the top performer like his 70's work like Namka Haram, Sanjog and Saudagar like he proves he is not only action hero but has other talents to show.
Rekha, Asrani, Farida Jalal and Sanjeev KUmar well supported him. One of the songs which is available on LP was dropped from movie was "Zindagi KO Sanwarna" by Yesudas. A must see movie..
This movie deals with class warfare with a backdrop of music. The
of Alaap is incredibly good.There are numerous classical
Amitabh has never acted better in his career.He epitomises the struggling
musician type to the T.
Chaya Devi is sublime, not only her acting but her character in this movie
Warning to all tho- this is a complete tearjerker,.,come ready with
Rekha is good but not memorable.

ALAAP is another combo of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Amitabh Bachchan The
film is a story of a musician who has a friction with his father who
wants him to be a lawyer. The film is well handled again by Hrishida,
with the right emotions and several subplots which are well dealt. The
friction with the father and son is well handled, Previously in Namak
Haram too Hrishi had explored that angle but not as much as here. The
characters of Farida Jalal, Sanjeev Kumar(cameo) too are well handled
The film does drag at times but yet is superb
Direction is superb Music is good, though it didn't have a big hit score, in this film Yesudas sings for Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan is brilliant in his role, giving it the right pathos and sincerity,Rekha is good in a brief role,Om Prakash is superb Sanjeev Kumar is good in a cameo, Farida Jalal is superb, Asrani in a serious role leaves a mark, others all are good Chayya Devi leaves a mark as Sarjo
