Set the poem on fire.
19 May 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Daag: A Poem of Love is a melodramatic and twisted tale. The film is about Sunil and Sonia, a young couple who get separated when Sunil is sentenced to life prison for killing Dhiraj, a wealthy young man who tried to molest Sonia. Soon after, Sunil is declared dead in a car accident on his way to the prison. A pregnant Sonia finds herself all alone and decides to leave the city and start a new life with her child. She finds a job as a school teacher where she befriends a young woman named Chandni. When Sonia's past is revealed, she loses her job and finds refuge in Chandni's house. There she finds out that Sunil is actually alive, living under a different identity as Chandni's husband Sudhir. Daag is nowhere among the best works of the great Yash Chopra, though it is fairly enjoyable. The film starts well and the romantic sequences are beautifully shot, but it becomes predictable, at times overdone and the action sequences are very poorly handled. The concept of a man who is considered dead and is actually alive is really done to death. The film does manage to entertain at places despite the formulaic script but the proceedings are melodramatic and hard to believe. Rajesh Khanna is okay in this role. He does not impress much but his role is nothing exceptional. Sharmila Tagore does the best of her rather bland character. Khanna and Tagore do have a good chemistry but nowhere as great as in Aradhana. Beautiful Raakhee steals the show with her graceful presence and restrained acting. The music is good but not very memorable. Daag is in my view an okay one-time watch, but not more than that.
