When suspicion eats up the marital bliss
8 October 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Suspicion is the worst thing to happen in a happily married life. However prior to the movie under review, this issue had not been honestly and properly dealt with in bollywood movies. Aap Ki Kasam (1974) was the first movie which (perhaps by default) dealt with this issue boldly and refuted male chaunivism with conviction. It was the first bollywood which was free from male bias and declared the worth of a woman's self-respect and dignity.

Director J. Omprakash (who happened to be the father-in-law of Rakesh Roshan and maternal grandfather of Hritik Roshan) always made movie whose names started from the letter - 'A' and which were of the social drama genre. Since he always aimed to make entertaining musicals (or rom-coms in today's lingo), this movie seems to have become a path-breaking one just by default. However end result is the most important thing and that is a thought-provoking, sensitive and interesting movie.

Kamal (Rajesh Khanna) is a financially weak student who falls in love with his college-mate, Sunita who comes from a well-off family. They get married, Kamal gets a decent job and they start their happy wedded live in a new house with Kamal's friend, Mohan (Sanjeev Kumar) being the neighbour. Mohan's marital life is in doldrums because of his wife's promiscuous nature and activities. The decent nature of Mohan and the common factor of music brings Sunita and Mohan closer and they become good friends. However Sunita's friendly gesture towards Mohan is sisterly only and Mohan too has nothing clandestine in this regard. However this pious human relationship becomes the basis of suspicion in Kamal's heart. This suspicion leads to pregnant Sunita's leaving Kamal and going back to her father's home. Misunderstandings prop up, cracks and distances in their relationship get widened and finally, a depressed Sunita gets divorced from Kamal and gets married to the doctor who has been treating her. When Kamal comes to know the truth and his mistake, he repents a lot but now the wheel of time cannot be rolled back. Years later, Kamal meets his tragic death while saving his own daughter from a fire broken out in her marriage.

The story plot is just very good and the director has done full justice to it after the initial dragging. The second half of the movie is engrossing and does not allow the viewer to skip it even for a minute. However the first half is marred by the overdoz of romance and comedy. I feel, the director was carried away by the norms prevailing in those times of making at least two and a half hour long movie. Else he would have trimmed it by at least 20 minutes. There are many songs (though they are quite good), romantic scenes and comedy too before the real story takes off. However once the take off is done, the flight is swift and gripping.

The efforts of the writer and the director have been ably supported by the talented performers. I consider this movie among the three best performances of Mumtaz (the other two being Tere Mere Sapne and Aaina). Whether in the form of the young sweetheart or the newly wedded and highly romantic wife or the clean-hearted and kind woman, sympathizing with the lonely and aggrieved neighbour who happens to be her husband's friend or the woman of self-respect, not ready to furnish any dignified clarification to her unduly suspicious husband or the torn lady in her father's home or the mature mother, marrying her daughter and still longing to see the father of her daughter; Mumtaz is simply outstanding. Saying anything about Sanjeev Kumar is always trying to show lamps to the sun. He was one of those rare actors who could never act bad. And now about Rajesh Khanna, despite the criticisms, I always considered him a good actor. At least in this movie, he has acted brilliantly in the role of first a loving and later a suspicious husband and further later a repenting person, striving for atonement and making amends. The supporting cast including the comedians has done well. Even the leading pair has done hilarious comedy in the song - Jai Jai Shiv Shankar.

The music is highly admirable. Apart from Jai Jai Shiv Shankar, songs like Zindagi Ke Safar Mein Guzar Jaate Hain Jo Mukaam, Karvaten Badalte Rahe Saari Raat Hum, Suno - Kaho etc. are melodious, meaningful and memorable songs. Lata and Kishore have given voices for the lyrics of Anand Bakshi composed by none other than Pancham Da, i.e., R.D. Burman.

Technically and production value wise, the movie is decent as expected from J. Om Prakash. It's a nice entertainment with a message no doubt.

Finally, while recommending the movie to all, I reiterate my stand which I had mentioned in some earlier review - Communication gap is the biggest enemy of all relationships. It's better to communicate and clear the things propping up in your relationships, especially close and important relationships, instead of fostering suspicions and misunderstandings in your heart. Just take a lesson from the character of Kamal in this movie and never allow suspicion to creep in your significant relationships.
