Storyline

Kedarnath is a wealthy man with many enemies. One day, a taxi-driver, Dilher Singh, saves his life, but is killed instead. Kedarnath is grateful and is willing to look after Dilher's widow and son. But his enemies find out about this, and substitute a woman named Sheela and her son, Vikram, instead. The real widow is killed by them, and her son, Jimmy, is looked after by a kind-hearted poor man, Jaggu, and his son, Gulu, who make their living stealing and begging. Years later, Jimmy and Gulu have grown up but are still stealing. Jimmy, on the run from hoods, ends up in Delhi, impersonating Rakesh Rajpal, and meets with Jyoti and falls in love with her. Jyoti introduces him to her dad, none other than Kedarnath. It is here that the drama unfolds, bringing back past memories and crimes. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fast, funny and flawless
8 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This was Saif Ali Khans debut movie. He started of his career with two releases in the same year. The other was Parampara which did average business. Aashiq Awara starred his mother in a special appearance. It also featured the sexy newcomer Mamta Kulkarni. Aashiq Awaara is the typical Bollywood Masala movie, with everything from Action, lots of good comedy, romance, family drama, funny dialouges thanks to the amazing Kader Khan, who usually does the dialouges for all his movies. I absolutely loved this movie. The most funniest character in this movie and majority of Bollywood Movie is Kader Khan. This was one of Mamta's best movies, although she didn't do too well in Bollywood. The songs were decent. If you get a chance to see this. Go for it.
