Storyline

Sitaram runs his family in an authoritarian manner. He has planned the marriage of his son, Vasudev, only to be told that Vasudev loves another woman, Suman, who he plans to marry. Sitaram tells his son to forget about his love, and marry the woman he has chosen for him. Vasudev instead marries Suman, and brings her home to introduce her to to his family. While the rest of the family welcome Suman, Sitaram makes it clear that she is not welcome. Shortly thereafter Vasudev and Suman leave the household and re-locate to the U.S. Several years later, Sitaram receives a letter informing him that Vasudev and his family will be coming to visit them in India. Sitaram looks forward to seeing his son and his family after all these years. He is enraged when he finds that the only one sent to visit him is Sita, his granddaughter, and the excuse for Vasudev and Suman not attending is that "they are busy". Old wounds surface, and Sitaram will have nothing to do with his granddaughter, who has ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Udhaar Ki Zindagi is a Hindi melodrama of its sort. It's a nice, albeit typical episode of a girl named Sita who comes from the US to India to visit her paternal grandfather, who has not been in contact with his son since the latter's marriage, which he disapproved of. Sita is determined to win her grandpa's heart and she ultimately does, but there the real conflict actually begins. The grandfather definitively wants to see his son but Sita does not find the courage to tell her aging grandparents that their son was actually killed in a car accident with his wife, as they would not be able to resist such shocking news. Udhaar Ki Zindagi is not a particularly convincing movie, it is flawed and overly sentimental, but it has its pluses too, the best thing about it being Kajol's presence. She is moving and convincing as the intensely tormented yet vivacious and strong Sita. Jeetendra and Moushumi Chatterjee form a good screen couple like they used to do in their prime. Chatterjee still has a graceful screen presence. The film's music is okay, but one song that is particularly touching is "Thodi Hansi". The film's ending is bittersweet. Lovers of Hindi cinema and its melodramatic nature would certainly enjoy watching Udhaar Ki Zindagi, and I recommend it to Kajol fans mostly. I'm sure they will be interested to see the lady, who is regarded today as one of Hindi cinema's best actresses, in one of her first roles, which may not be particularly memorable but is played sincerely enough to be seen.
