A different movie
17 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Ajay (Played by Amitabh) is a young man. His family consist of himself and his mother. He runs a small factory that make electric equipment like Ammeters etc. The factory has only one single worker / foreman (Played by A K Hangal), who makes sub-standard products and also has lot of financial demands. Instead of running the factory Ajay is more interested in rising socially. He is a good singer too.

Since the goods made by Ajay's factory are substandard, they are returned and he is taken to the court. His life is in jeopardy and now he realizes that being illiterate if his foreman can make the goods why can't he?

This movie is purposeful - a lighthouse for me personally. The story line is simple and effective. Excellent acting by the cast. Excellent music, "Rimjhim Ghire Sawan ..." stays apart. This is a refreshing movie.
