Storyline

Thakur Rajnath Singh Chouhan opens a can of worms when he announces that he is going to marry a prostitute by the name of Tulsi. His mother will not even consider Tulsi as a daughter-in-law, and would prefer that he marry Sanjukta. Tulsi convinces him that he should marry the woman of his mother's choice, which he eventually does. Thereafter Tulsi gives birth to a baby boy, Ajay, and passes away. Sanjukta raises Ajay as her own child, even after the passing away of Rajnath, and even after giving birth to Pratap. Ajay is given the entire responsibility of the estate, while Pratap squanders money on courtesans and alcohol. Sanjukta trusts Ajay, until one day when a villager complains to her that Ajay has got his daughter, Geeta, pregnant; additionally she also finds out that Ajay has been misappropriating money, and also owes money to a prostitute named Leelabai, the very woman who sold Tulsi to Rajnath. Now Sanjukta has to decide what is to be done with Ajay. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Hindu Epic made for Bollywood Viewers
18 September 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful film by Raj Khosla! No doubt Raj Khosla made Nutan and Asha Parekh perform so marvelously that both of them gave their best in the film. Thus Nutan won the FilmFare Award for Best Actress and Asha Parekh was only nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza penned excellent dialogues. He also won Filmfare for Best Dialogue. Raj Khosla won Best Film Award too. Only music was remaining for this flick but Raj Kapoor's Satyam Shivam Sundaram also released in 1978 and it had much better soundtrack so it couldn't win Best Music Director Award for Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song "Main Tulsi Tere Aagan Ki Koi Nahin Mein Tere Saajan Ki" is the soul of the entire story. Anand Bakshi penned the lyrics so carefully that each word and simile used compliment the story. Other song "Chhaap Tilak Sab Cheeni Moh Se Naina Milaike" was Ammer Khusroo's song but Raj Kholsa always had Folk song in his movie such as "Bindya Chamkegi" in Do Raaste (1969). So this too had its Folk song which was by Ammer Khusroo. However Anand Bakshi wrote it nicely so its grace wasn't lost. Lata Mangeshkar gave her best for Laxmikant Pyarelal's music as always she did.

Coming back to movie the performance of Vinod Khanna and Vijay Anand is also nice. The way Raj Khosla portrayed Thakurs was distinctive. Screenplay and Editing were too good which never dragged the movie. I would rate as 10/10 as there are no obvious flaws and imperfection in direction and production. One must watch it!!
