Did You Know?


Sridevi and Jaya Prada didn't exchange a word during the shooting of the eight or nine films they co-starred in. While shooting "Maqsad", their co-stars Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra apparently locked the two women up in the same room. An hour later when they peeped in, they saw them sitting quietly in two corners of the room. See more »

Typical pot boiler
16 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the typical potboilers that was being churned out in the 80s. Most of them were remakes of Telugu hits. Jeetendra was the leading man in most of them. Rajesh Khanna too did quite a few - Naya Kadam, Masterji, Maqsad, Asha Jyoti, Aaj Ka MLA etc., This movie was the 2nd highest grosser in 1984. It was one of the last hits in Kaka's magnificent career. This film however suits only Jeetendra. There is nothing for an actor of Kaka's caliber here. It was quite shocking to see Kaka teasing Sridevi with crude lyrics in a song, something which was not expected in his films. His costumes were also garish. He even wore yellow pants in a scene. Kaka was fat & his hairline was receding & so paired opposite a young Sridevi, it was a mismatch.

Jeetendra is his usual wooden self. Sridevi & Japyparadha looked gorgeous & there is a climax dance sequence featuring them which is a highlight. It was reported that they did not even speak to each other on the sets. So, Kaka & Jeetu decided to do something about it. They locked them up in the same room. But when they opened it after some time, they found both of then still sitting in the same place not speaking a word to each other.

There are host of villains - Prem Chopra, Kader Khan etc., It was sad to see Amjad Khan make a fool of himself. Songs were typical Bappi Lahiri style.

The film was a big hit with the masses & so it became a big hit.

It was just another addition to Kaka's list of films, nothing mote than that.
