The three ingredients essential for the success of a film-an entertaining plot quality acting and cinematographic excellence are all fulfilled by the release of this film.
Released on 7 July 1985 directed by raj kapoor,it has an impressive cast with the winsome beauty,mandakini and charming rajeev kapoor,playing the lead roles of ganga respectively.
the films begins with the usual boy meets girl syndrome,the appeal being the breaking of the rigid social barrier so prevalent in the hindu society.for the girl meeting the boy means freedom from having to always behave in accordance with social norms.lady luck seems to favour Narendra,as having got the permission to go to the hills which leads to his love.the heroine,however,is engaged to be married to a 'suitable young man',her parents choice.however,events take a surprising turn and destiny chalks out the future for each person.the movie aims to bring out the essence of true love.however,destiny has a major role to play in shaping the 'finale' the film displays the heroin's excellent acting skills and a sensitive portrayal of the hero. other than the superb acting,the most striking aspect of the film is raj kapoor at its full grandeur. raj kapoor's eye for finer details is revealed in the fact that everything from the linen to the crockery is a copy of the original.the costumes are simply awesome and add to the film's appeal.
the cinematography,photography and choreography are all brilliant and leave nothing to be desired.the music has a haunting quality and blends beautifully with the spirit of the film.the background score is remarkable. judging by the reactions of the audience,raj kapoor's has once again proved himself to be a director par excellence.his efforts are indeed commendable.this film is sure to appeal to young people and adolescents.
