Are the sins of a father visited on her daughter? Can a woman retain her humanity after spending 14 jail years? Does a son have an obligation to avenge his father's death?
7 January 2014 | by (New Zealand / India) – See all my reviews

A modestly successful performer, Vijay, his wife Lakshmi, his secretary Tom and Lakshmi's ex admirer Dinesh figure in a scuffle. Vijay dies.

Years later, his son by Lakshmi, who grew up almost as an orphan because his mother went to prison, becomes a successful performer. He adores his mother and Govinda's (Raja) acting in the role of a son is spectacular.

He meets Renu, another performer and love bells start to ring. Renu (Shilpa Shirodkar) is the only child of a well heeled businessman, Dinesh whose ethics, morals and values are questionable - but Renu has no idea of the dark side of her father. Shilpa's acting is rather mediocre in this role.

Moshumi Chatterjee turns in another notable performance as Lakshmi, Raju's mother, and Renu's mother in-law.

S. Ramanathan's direction is tight, editing good though the cameras could have been better positioned for some of the more emotive moments to capture expressions realistically.

Though the story line is pretty much tired through over use by the Bombay filmi Moghuls, the acting, music and some unexpected twists to the plot make this a wonderful way to spend a lazy week-end afternoon.
