But Mahendra is unable to get Maya out of his mind, and his marriage with Sudha fails, and ends up with a formal separation. Years later, Mahendra and Sudha meet at a railway station, and both do remember each other, and share their experiences after their separation.

Excellent portrayal of emotions.
28 March 2000 | by (Washinton, DC, USA) – See all my reviews

I suggest this movie for all those people who are or were in love at some point in time in their lives.

This is Gulzar at his best.

Naseeruddin, Rekha and Anuradha Patel have done a splendid job with Panchamda's music providing the icing on the cake.
