Storyline

Sethji is a widowed, a businessman and lives a comfortable life with his only daughter, Hansa, his son-in-law, Rahul, and a grandson, Munna. He has Rahul as his right-hand man, and a nephew named Dinesh who also assists in running the business. Petty rivalries and jealousies have grown in the family, and Sethji and Rahul feel that Dinesh is now trying to undermine the business. They would like to get rid of him, without attracting any attention to themselves. They do terminate Dinesh, but this affects Sethji's health, and he dies. Shortly thereafter, Hansa also dies, leaving Rahul to look after the business on his own. But there are many questions unanswered, like why was no one in attendance with the ailing Sethji; Hansa's death was a suicide, why was it covered up?; what of the affair that Rahul is having with Janki, their maidservant, who is full of venom against the family; and the involvement of Anita, Rahul's secretary, in his personal life. With the police getting involved, it ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Excellent film portraying an obsessive, womanizing man and a woman who is caught up with him.
7 May 2010 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

Amol Palekar plays Rahul who is the son in law of Sethji (played by Shreeram Lagoo), a widowed businessman who lives a comfortable life with his only daughter, Hansa (played by Kawal Gandhiok) and his grandson Munna. Rahul is Sethji's senior business partner along with a nephew, Dinesh (played by Girish Karnad). Dinesh has been living abroad in Europe and has placed an offer of some used industrial machinery to be sold to Sethji. Rahul however disagrees and tells Sethji not to buy the machinery, but to manufacture it locally. Sethji is however not of the opinion, and a rivalry develops between Rahul and Dinesh. As Munna being Sethji's heir apparent, Rahul secretly feels cheated out of his inheritance. He starts scheming on how to do away with Sethji, who is an old man and suffering from a heart condition.

Rahul is portrayed in the film as a sexually obsessive man who has been having an affair with his secretary, unknown to his wife.

In the midst of this is caught Janki (played by Smita Patil). She was the wife of one of the workers killed by an accident in the factory owned by Sethji. She obtains work as a maidservant in Rahul's house. Rahul seduces Janki and uses her to his means.

Other stars in the film are Om Puri (as Namdev), and Rohini Hattangadi (who plays Rahul's secretary).
