'Jurmana' is another Hrishikesh Mukherjee classic
2 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

'Jurmana' is another Hrishikesh Mukherjee classic, which has Amitabh in the role of a rich, spoil Casanova.

Inder Saxena(Amitabh Bachchan) is a rich Casanova, who uses his money and powerful status in society to win over girls. Once, on business, he goes back to the small town where he attended college. There he bumps into his college buddy Prakash(Vinod Mehra), a simple minded and poor man. Inder also accidentally meets Rama(Rakhee), the beautiful daughter of Inder and Prakash's professor(A.K.Hangal). Inder wants to win over Rama, but Prakash warns him that Rama will never fall for his money or image. The two have a bet that Inder will win over Rama. Inder succeeds in luring Rama into his false love trap. When Rama's father knows about this, Rama leaves town in shame.

Does Inder really love Rama? Does he succeed in winning her back after treating her so disrespectfully? What happens to Prakash, who is Rama's silent lover? Amitabh comes out with a strong performance. His role has a lot of negative shades, which he has portrayed with conviction. R.D. Burman's hit song 'Sawan Ke Jhule' sung by Lata Mangeshkar is a melodious hit. Good performances by Rakhee and Vinod Mehra too.
