Trivia

Ashwini Bhave signed the film because she wanted to act opposite Anil Kapoor. When he opted out and Vinod Khanna was signed to replace him, Ashwini Bhave threw a fit at Feroz Nadiadwala's office. She wanted to leave the film because she felt Vinod Khanna was to old star opposite her .She felt she would get slotted in the older generation. Yash Chopra and Feroz Nadiadwala promised her they would present her good. When the film was complete, Feroz Nadiadwala immediately removed Ashwini from the other film he was producing, Ram Shastra.

Yash Chopra's direction makes an awful story watchable......
4 December 2013 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Parampara" was one of the most unknown movies from late Yash Chopra that bombed at the box office. It's a multi-starrer drama based on the family feuds between the affluent Maharajas, led by Thakur Bhavani Singh played by Sunil Dutt. The story to me was quite mediocre which doesn't suggest any time period, is illogical. and becomes quite stupid. Despite a very poor story. the film doesn't become awful but remains a bit entertaining if you skip some of the boring sequences in the second half. Good dialogues, a nice photography, and a good direction from Yash Chopra just adds some grace to this stupid story and makes it pretty watchable. The film also marks debut of Saif Ali Khan who shares short roles with Amir Khan, who both are sadly wasted in the film. Overall, "Parampara" becomes just a watchable film due to Yash Chopra's direction who gives just some life to a very mediocre story. For me it was an OK film but not a memorable one.
