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)

Only Kajol's performance saves this film
29 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a well known fact that Udhaar Ki Zindagi is copied from a South Indian film. But it's the bravura performance of the film's leading lady, Kajol that saves the film from going into slumps. Kajol was flying high these days with the success of Baazigar and UKZ further solidifies her position in Bollywood as a heroine of substance.

Kajol is wonderful from the very first frame of the movie. The film is basically about a granddaughter's (Kajol) constant struggles to placate her angry grandfather played by Jeetendra. The reason that Jeetendra is angry at Kajol is because his son married a girl whom he didn't approve of. Kajol's father then walks out on Jeetendra and settles down in USA. Years later, Kajol comes back to India but with a secret whom she's dead scared to disclose to anyone, including her doting grandmother played by Moushumi Chatterjee.

As mentioned above, Kajol is magnificent in this movie. The sincerity with which she portrays her character shows off in many scenes. Her character Sita's expression of frustration, sadness, happiness and vanity is well conveyed by Kajol. Jeetendra and Moushumi Chatterjee's chemistry is excellent and the couple look too good on screen. Moushumi Chatterjee portrays her character with grace and a certain amount of vulnerability. Ravi Kishen as Jeetendra's son was good. Rohit Bhatia as the leading lady's love interest is strictly okay. Given the fact that it's a heroine-driven film, the hero had nothing worth mentioning to do.

The music of UKZ is heartwarming, especially "thodi haasi thode ansoo". This song is amazingly picturized and really unfolds the essence of the film. Other songs of this film are good too.

Overall, a must-watch for Kajol's fans.
