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...

Perfect display of pure serious acting by Utpal Dutt - One of The Masters of Comedy
29 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a movie which has such a simple plot, yet its so interesting to watch. This is only because of the pure acting display by Utpal Dutt and Anil Kapoor and for a change, Rakhee.

Unlike other movies, Saaheb has a happy beginning and a serious end. The story is not gripping, but its the acting, emotions, and the innocence displayed by characters which makes this a great movie. The father and son relationship was brought to a different level, especially in the pen-ultimate scene.

There are very little flaws in the screenplay and direction, considering this released in 1985.

All in all, a good movie to watch especially if you want to see the best of Utpal Dutt.
