Maqsad - Superhit Blockbuster
11 March 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Maqsad was the second highest grosser of the year 1984. K.Bappiah, after the box office success of film Bandish, kept insisting Rajesh Khanna do be part of at-least one multi star movie of his films and Khanna readily agreed to do this film.The producer D.Rama Naidu always gave the solo hero films requiring strong performance of the male lead to Rajesh Khanna when he remade his Telugu films by himself in Hindi.Maqsad was one among the only 15 multi hero projects which Khanna did(Rajesh has 99 solos and 15 multi of which 80 are superhits). The movie was the best of the three movies which childhood friends Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra did to together. All the songs pictured on Khanna and sung by Kishore were more popular than those which Kishore sang for Jeetendra in the film.The movie was remake of Mundadugu produced and directed by the same team of D Rama Naidu and Bappaiah. Amjad Khan plays as a comedian and the movie saw excellent acting abilities of Sridevi and Jaya Prada. As expected Rajesh Khanna steals the show from Jeetendra in the film.
