This film came out the year i was born in 1985 and i saw it on 2005 when i was 20. At the time i wasn't familiar with Rati Agnihotri cos I've only seen Coolie 30 times. I've seen her in very few films like Boxer and Zindagani and the recent Hum Tum and Yeh hai Jalwa. After watching Tawaif i have realised that she was a amazing actress. She is beautiful and talented and enacted the role of a tawaif (prostitute) superbly. This movie is among Bollywood's underrated films which won only 2 awards that year. Rishi Kapoor delivers a good performance, Poonam is alright, kader Khan is good in a brief role, but Rati stole the show. I rate this film highly as it has a little comedy, Family drama, emotions and romance.
