Well I have seen the film many times
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As watching Hindi movies this movies has a different outline but somehow lacks many essential things, we know Big B is always good but in this film he is not up to the mark. Pran saab is always at his best and to portray a sad father he gave his best performance. Amjad Khan the villain was also and his best performance. Hema during late 70s & 80s had put on weight and she looks fine but not up to the mark as she was in abhinatri. Her acting is charming but needed more to it. Sarika also had done the best but not that great. As far as film concerned its a film of person not believing in god so atheist. But Deven Verma's comedy was the good part, music was also fine not that fantastic. The climax as usual the hero of Hindi films wins and Villon loses so the climax was happy ending but somehow the things weren't that good in this film. Just before climax things sucked totally. This movie had different outline but sucks overall. The only thing to watch is Amjad khan's and Pran's acting, Deven Verma's comedy and enjoy good music, and overall movie sucks
