Interesting multistarrer
2 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Rajput is one of the few multistarrers of Rajesh Khanna. Here his costars are Dharmendra & Vinod Khanna. There was a time when Rajesh & Dharam were close friends but later became enemies, reasons not known so far.

However, they did movies together like Rajput & Dharm Aur Qanoon. Here, Rajesh makes his appearance nearly 50 minutes after the movie has started. He & Dharam share screen space while Vinod does not have much to do.

Rajesh Khanna proves once again that he can hold his own against other big stars. The reactions he gives when his wife tells him that she loves someone else & is pregnant, are excellent. The climax has a slight twist when he tells his "son" to light the funeral pyre of Dharmendra who is the actual father, is touching.

The director Vijay "Goldie" Anand has made a fairly entertaining movie, but it could have done with better editing & music. LP disappoint with their music & the length of the movie at 3 hours, is tiring at times.

Dharmendra also gives a good performance but he is overshadowed by Rajesh.

Amitabh mentioned in an interview that he was approached for this film but things did not work out.

The film had average run at the box office.
