Quotes

Sunil Kohli: What are you thinking?
Sonia Kohli: I'm wondering why so many people under this roof have stories about their pasts. Did they pen them by themselves? If not, why am I being punished like this?
Sunil Kohli: It's done. I'm free now.
Sunil Kohli: You're not free. You gave your name to Pinky and Chandni; you gave them honour. She helped you out. Now you want to disgrace her?

Yash Chopra's Masterpiece !
22 July 2005 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This is definitely among one of the earliest hit pictures accredited to Mr. Yash Chopra, who is still ringing the bells in Bollywood by his recent success of block buster Veer-Zara.

Besides, the direction and intriguing/exciting story, Rajesh Khanna has rendered his charismatic romantic touch with Shamila Tagore which is beautifully filmed by Mr. Chopra. It is indeed, one of the last hit films of the Rajesh Khanna Years, who was already experiencing the onslaught of the Angry Young Celluloid Intruder namely Amitabh.

It has a good bit of songs footing as well nice direction to call it a super hit.
