Storyline

Gopal and Seema, childhood friends are separated. Rana, Seema's father and Gopal's foster father made an agreement that would spare Gopal's life and provide great wealth to Rana. This is a love story of Seema and Gopal, and Saloni who loves Gopal in a simple minded way. It is a story of deceit, greed, wealth, manipulation and wealth related arrogance in rural India. Gopal challenges the established powers in his community and suspects Seema of collaborating with the enemy. Will Gopal learn the truth of his birth and ancestry? How will this situation of Gopal being loved by two women resolve? While the usual elements of Bombay filmi formula are present, the story line is quite refreshingly different. Acting is largely restrained with a few moments of high drama. Life on a tea estate in the sixties is quite well represented, the socio economic and political imperatives of a highland village are well developed and social values of the time are well represented. All in all, Sawan ki Ghata... Written by mg-gopalan

Good romance film
29 March 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Gopal (Manoj) a young man, who had a miraculous escape from a fiery car crash, falls in love with Seema (Sharmila Tagore). Problems arise when Seema's rich father, who is unhappy about the match, fixes his daughter's marriage to the villainous Kailash (Pran). Kailash, though he agrees, has his lustful sights set on Saloni (Mumtaz) a fiery village belle.

The film's highlight is definitely O P Nayyar's superb soundtrack, with Asha Bhonsle excelling herself in numbers like 'Aaj Koi Pyaar Se' and 'Haule Haule Saajna' – all the richness and depth of her voice comes through in these playful, deeply romantic songs.
