Storyline

Mr. Sharma (Utpal Dutt) lives with his four sons (Biswajeet, Vijay Arora, Dilip Dhawan) and a daughter, Geeta or Butlie. Only the youngest son, Sunil (Anil Kapoor) and Geeta are unmarried. Mr. Sharma arranges his daughter's marriage with a man who will be re-locating to London, U.K. The family requires Rs.50,000/- for the expenses, and will even go to the extent of selling their house. Sunil or Saaheb as he is referred to, is the black sheep of the family - unemployed & uneducated - only interested in playing football. None of the elder brothers have any means of coming up with money for the expenses, and two of them even scheme with their respective wives to take over the house. Mr. Sharma attempts to raise the money, in vain. Sunil then makes the ultimate sacrifice for the marriage of his sister, and brings the money to his dad. His dad believes that Sunil has stolen the money, and Sunil is forced to lie about where he got the money from. The family only finds out after the marriage...

Movie with a very hopeless theme
26 October 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Looking at a bright star cast, I developed quite a few hopes with this movie but all worthless. I always found movie off track and progressing with no definite theme. It started on a light node and was moving smoothly with the entry of Amrita Sen. Though I could not figure out significance of his Mama's role played by Deven Verma. Many sequences of the movie did not make any sense to me, like Anil's visit to his brother in law's place, his visit to Amrita's place. Also why Anil's passion about football was consolidated again and again.

I am trying hard to convince myself that it was the story of the sacrifice of Anil, but sometime he was shown so lame that he is not absorbing, what is happening around him. Utpal Datt did a wonderful job but he is best suited in his typical energetic old man roles. His character was poorly sketched in the movie. Mostly it was a waste movie.
