dimple goes topless in this classic
1 April 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This was supposed to be the movie with which Dimple Kapadia would make her comeback. it had everything going for it. The Rishi Kapoor-Dimple Kapadia Jodi, Kamal Hassan right from Ek Duje Ke Liye, a director like Ramesh Sippy (Sholay, Shaan, Shakti, Seeta aur Geeta, Andaz) music by RD Burman but the movie got delayed. The director and Dimple also fell in love but it would not end happily. This movie is a love triangle. Kamal Hassan is in love with his childhood friend Dimple. She sees him as her best friend. Dimple meets Rishi and both fall in love. Rishi and Kamal get to know each other and become friends. When Rishi comes to know that Kamal loves Dimple he scrified his love. But thats not the end. On paper it may sound cliché but this movie is one of the best love stoeries ever. You actually also see Dimple in a topless scene, for a brief moment but the pause button will give youa chance to relive it. The best thing about Ramesh Sippys movies are the death scenes which are always brilliant (Amitabh in Sholay, Sunil Dutt in Shaan, Amitabh in Shakti, Jacjie, Meenakshi, Aditya Pancholi in Akayla,Rajesh Khanna in Andaz) and this movie is no different. The acting is superb as always. Add to it that you have one of the best directors of Bollywood and one of the best actors ever (Rishi Kapoor). Music by RD Burman has evergreen songs by Kishore Kumar, Lata, SP Balasubrahmanium. Songs like Saagar Kinare Dil jeh Pukare are sung even today. Worth a watch over and over again.Rishi kapoor, Dimple, Kamal Hassan, Saeed Jaffrey, Madhur Jaffrey, Nadira, Shafi Imaandaar, Satish Kaushik all are good.
