Very good
27 January 2006 | by (Rourkela, India) – See all my reviews

"Chitchor" is a beautiful film with excellent music – a typical Rajshri Productions movie. Amol Palekar visits Zareena Wahab's village in connection with the construction of a new bridge. Zarina's family thinks he is Vijayendra Ghatge, the engineer with whom they are planning to marry Zarina off. They are very pleased with the simple Amol. He becomes close to the family and Zarina. But when they come to know about the truth they avoid Amol and wants Zarina to forget Amol and marry Vijayendra. But a happy ending ensues with Vijayendra sacrificing his love in favor of Amol. A family drama which never loses its freshness despite repeated viewings. The script was well written with all the characters beautifully etched. Chitchor contains some of Ravindra Jain's best music compositions. And the songs made Yesudas famous.
