Another good performance by dharmendra
18 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Whole movie relies on Dharmendra's performance. The direction is also OK. However the central characters played by dharmendra is not the usual dharmendra playing action hero in other films.

This is what to like about this film . that you will see dharmendra playing an well-educated man who reaches success in short time . But it only lasts for short time and his rainy days start over. His character is quite dynamic and compelling. he plays comic, tragical, sad, happy man in different phases of life in the movie. IF you think dharmendra can't act well. You should watch this movie. Then I believe you would have to change your opinion on him . He is not less than other talented actor in those days. However this movie's been low profile of his. I would recommend to this movie to every dharmendra fan and who likes Indian cinema of 70s. I ensure you will have nice time going through this movie. Rakhee playing the supporting role is also quite good but can't be compared to dharmendra. Performances are fine, songs are alrite, dharmendra's performance is to watch out. SO if you thinking of spending some free time at home? rent this DVD and watch it. You will have some nice time. so enjoy a good piece of work by satyen bose in 70s . have a nice time. And also this movie has 2 issues to talk about like is money more important or honour?
