Storyline

The protagonist, Rahul, is an aspiring film maker but he does not have a good script nor the money needed to invest in making a movie. That's when his childhood friend steps in and mortgages his restaurant to come up with the money and claims that he is doing it for himself, for he believes in the capability of Rahul, and wants his own name to become immortal. Rahul is the son of a 1950's film director and his keep; his father also has a "legal" family which knows about the existence of Rahul and his mother and detest them to no end. Every time Rahul goes to their house to get some money, he is ridiculed by everyone in that household, including his father's mother and his lawfully wedded wife. His father, though, cares more for Rahul's mother than his own wife. Rahul also has a girlfriend who is very supportive of him and who eventually marries him. While Rahul is struggling to make his film and is short on money, every small gesture to fulfill his needs - like smoking - by his ... Written by ApneRam

I Love it
20 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie a long time ago. I loved it. I loved the drama. I loved the music. I loved the acting. It is really a story that takes place in India, but for many reasons it is an everyday story in our lives too. I have seen people going thru the same problems and facing the same challenges. I have cried the whole time the movie went on. I would have, perhaps, reacted different in many situations. But that is just me. I have known people to react and face the same life, some by choice, some forced by religion, or family. My whole family loved this movie. We didn't have any kids in the audience at the time, but if it was possible, I would sit with my daughter and see it together and discuss about it. I haven't seen it in awhile though. If I had a chance to buy it on DVD or cassette I would not hesitate to do so. I loved the movie.
