Memorable Melodrama
9 October 2009 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This is among one of the movies for which Rajesh Khanna shall be remembered forever. The prime reason because they don't make films like SAFAR anymore. There are no such story writers, directors, actors and even cameramen left, who are infused with the subtle humanistic forces which define the moral, social and real to life values.

This movie won most of the acclaim due to its super hit songs (wording as well as the screenplay). The mostly sad songs render the impetuous to the sequence of events. The songs are instilled with a sublime sense laden with an ethereal message. There are some unanswered questions about the essence of life which have been left for the audience to ponder.

It is extremely difficult for the present generation, especially those who love to watch sci-fi, computer graphic animated, fictional movies who possess an entirely different mindset,..... to enjoy and watch such classic films; where a subtle interaction of life, its shortcomings, tragedy, hope and fate revolves around the unforeseen situations of life.

Please don't get upset, if I state that not only the Indian cinema but the worldwide trend in movie making has resorted to a short cut materialistic approach with the help of technology, which can never be equaled to the sharpened intellect of human mind.
