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?
Sunil Kohli: But I love you, Sonia!

Intriguing story line . . .
19 December 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is one more gem of a movie made under "Yash Chopra" banner. An unusual, partly forced love triangle which is a result of a series of tragic events in the life of three characters in this movie. The original story was written by Gulshan Nanda who pioneered writing Hindi romantic novels in seventies and early eighties. Rakhi was the surprise package of this movie who looked far better than seasoned actress Shamila Tagore. Rajesh Khanna at his usual best. Easily 8/10
