Storyline

Gaurav Anand comes from a wealthy family, and enjoys a comfortable and luxurious lifestyle. He lives with his dad, Yashpal, an Industrialist; his mom, and an elder brother, Narendra, who is overseas. Gaurav has always shadowed by Narendra, and is resentful of his dad's attention toward Narendra. His dad is not at all attentive to Gaurav, as he dots on Narendra. Narendra returns home, and his parents are overjoyed, and spend all their available time with him. When Narendra is killed during an accident, the entire family is devastated by his sudden death. Gaurav attempts to fill-in for his brother, but in vain. In frustration, he joins the army and leaves home. His decision to join the army was not to serve his country, but to prove to his dad, but he, too, could be a worthy son. But will this decision make an impact on his sorrowing dad?

Trivia

The song " Kal Maine Ek Sapna Dekha" was recorded in the early 90's. To make the song feel fresh in 1997, the song was rerecorded with some of the older actresses name replaced with more newer names. The original version of the song was in the audio cassette released in 1992. See more »

Another delayed washout
4 October 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

The film started at 1988 and released in 1997, this is one of those films that was 40-50% complete but got stuck due to Dutt arrested, most of his films that released during his jail period didn't do so well. Although, after his release, delayed films like Mahaanta and Sanam released and crashed at the box office. In fact, another film of Sanju's, Safari started at around 1992 and didn't release until 1999. Like I said, most of his films got delayed and were complete washouts, didn't even make a decent opening. Sanam is an age old formula which doesn't work at all. The film is one of the worst melodramatic craps I have ever seen. The film has Dutt playing the son of a rich industrialist who gets killed in an accident. Though the movie tries to demonstrate a good twist by showing how Dutt was actually murdered but the villains fail and he returns and kills all the villains in typical Bollywood style, it fails to execute each scene properly. The movie would be fairly decent it would be only another boring romantic film but it tries hard to become an action thriller by forcing in action and also hideous comedy by some of the worst supporting actors,it falls flat. Sanju playes a role he has playen a million times, he sleepwalks through his role, he needs good roles now, not typical ones. Half of the film he is again dubbed by Chetan Shashital and in these portions, he suddenly looks like the 1990s Sanju and the first parts, he looks like the 80s Sanju, this gives you an idea of how delayed the film got. I won't bother stating more as this is an absolute crass film. Aziz Sajewal who gave Sanju Adharm(Hit) and Andolan(Flop but good) and a few other average to good films gives Sanju his worst film ever. On the whole this film fails from every aspect.
