Storyline

A mother sacrifices for her family. But a step-son? This is a story of a woman, her step-son, her natural son, daughter and alcoholic husband. A freak accident occurs, where Prabhat, in saving his step-mother, ends up mute; which starts him on his journey of unappreciated sacrifice. A kind factory owner gives him a job, his labour supporting his half brother, sister and step-mother, while his father is in jail, and even after his release. Prabhat discovers a plot to defraud his employer, gets the criminal to be jailed and invites retribution into his household. When offered the role of Manager of the business by a grateful employer, Prabhat nominates his half-brother Surya for the job, only to find himself unemployed soon there after. Neha, Prabhat's childhood friend loves him through thick and thin, and is a source of constant support and encouragement. She battles parental disapproval to keep the flame of love burning through her constancy. Surya, influenced by a group of fraudsters... Written by mg-gopalan New Zealand, India

An entertainer!
24 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ashim Samanta's 1995 hit 'Ahankaar' is a typical Bollywood family drama. The twist in the tale is that its protagonist is dumb... but has a bunch of conning people in his family, minus his mother, and a lot of baddies also. The film script is mediocre, but the filmmaker handles the script with ease. 'Ahankaar' works because not for once your disconnected from the film, your entertained completely. A winner all the way. Two Thumbs Up!

Pluses of the film: The filmmaker has handled the script with ease, as said before. The film is a complete family entertainer. The film has lovely songs, music by Anu Malik. Tere Andar Meri Jaan and Oh Bamba Oh are chart-busters. Performances are perfect: Mithun can never be doubted, he's excellent as always. Mamta is decent. Aroona Irani is superb, Monish Bahl is good. Prem Chopra and others are perfect.

Minuses: Not many.

on the whole 'Ahankaar' is a time-pass flick.
