Storyline

Naseeb, a story of destiny and fate, begins with a lottery ticket. A drunk who cannot pay his tab trades his 'winning' ticket to the waiter, Namdev (Pran), instead. Namdev decides to share this ticket with his three friends Damu (Amjad Khan), Raghu (Kader Khan) and Jaggi (Jagdish Raj). But when it turns out to actually be a winner, Damu and Ragu turn on the other two, murdering Jaggi and framing Namdev. Namdev goes on the run but Raghu and Damu intervene and throw him over a bridge into a river and Namdev is presumed dead. However he is rescued by a don (Amrish Puri) but no one is aware he is alive. Fast forward to ten years later - Damu and Raghu have used their stolen lottery money to build a fabulous hotel and make millions becoming very successful businessmen. Damu has used a share of his money to send his only son, Vicky (Shatrughan Sinha) to school in England. They have even employed Namdev's oldest son Johnny (Amitabh Bachchan), Vicky's best friend, as a waiter in the hotel. By... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Brilliant Entertaining Movie
10 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Naseeb is a multi budget Movie that was a Big Blockbuster Hit. It had a Extremely large star cast to create one of the biggest Indian films ever made. Naseeb is the typical Manmohan Desai movie that contains Action, Romance, Comedy, Family relationships and lots of fun and entertainment. Naseeb meaning fate has many points in the movie which counts on Fate. Amitabh Bachchan was good as usual. Rishi Kapoor was pretty amusing. Shutrungh Sinha was honestly speaking boring. Hema Malini was tremondous and was the Best actress of the early 80s. Reena Roy and Kim don't have much scope. Naseeb has almost all the Bollywood Villains ever from Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Prem Chopra and Om Shivpuri. Manmohan tries to add many characters in small or main roles from Pran to Jeevan. It even has a song sequence that celebrates the Silver Jubilee of a previous movie by the same director. The song has Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna and the famous Kapoor family members including the late Raj Kapoor who was a classic Bollywood Actor. This movie is Big in actors and Big in Production. A big time entertainer.
