Storyline

Samir Sahni is a farmer living with his mom, dad, wife, Rama, a young daughter, and his younger brother, Veer. Samir gets an offer to work in the U.K., and departs accordingly. He would like to settle there, and after doing so, would like his family to also join him. The years go by, and Samir keeps in touch with his family regularly. Then the Sahni family stop receiving any letters from him, and are anxious to know what has happened to him. Veer is asked to travel to U.K. to find out, and he does so. What he finds are tens of thousands of East Indians on fake passports, working for less than minimum wages, poor unhealthy conditions, fear of being deported, and paying half of their earnings to fellow East Indians who had got them here through the underground. Veer finds no sign of his brother, and sets out to investigate, only to find deceit, murder, and his very own life in danger. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

I was Sound Recordist for the film.
9 January 2004 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Des Pardes was one of the better films by Mr. Dev Anand, as a director. I worked with him for from 1973-85 and did 9 films, as a Sound Recordist. This film had good content and the script was executed well. It was leading lady, Tina Munim's first film. She was fun to work with and later turned out to be a very popular star in Hindi movies. Amjad Khan adopted a different mannerism and was excellent in the film, so were senior actors like Prem Chopra and Pran. The film had the set of a pub called 'Sam & Nam', which was used for shooting for nearly 45 days. It used to be filled with smoke for the ambience and due to this some workers complained of getting bad throat. So, a doctor was called on the set and entire unit was given a medical checkup regularly. This was first major film as cinematographer by Mr. D. K. Prabhakar, who was assistant to a very senior cinematographer, Mr. Fali Mistry. Music played an important part in the popularity of the film. The songs were very good to listen to, and were picturised well too. The film did fairly well on the box office.
