Family entertainer
20 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Anchal is one of those village based themes which makes for pleasant viewing. It is basically about the happenings in a happy family which undergoes some problems because of the antics of the villain.

Amol palekhar plays rajesh's elder brother who suspects the relationship between his wife raakhee & rajesh. This should have been given greater emphasis by the director but thrust has been given only towards the last few minutes of the film.

The pivot of the film is Raakhee & she has given a memorable performance. Rekha plays rajesh's love interest & this is a routine role for her. Prem chopra is his typical self as the villain.

Now, coming to the hero Rajesh khanna. He plays the innocent villager with aplomb & his romantic skirmishes with rekha are delightful. His emotional scenes with raakhee could have been shown with more punch.

R.D.Murman is the music director. He has given good songs but except for the opening song "Bhor Bhaye Panchi", the rest are average. Maybe it is also because we have come to expect superlative songs from the RD-Kaka combine.

Thge production values are good, the village locales are pleasing to the eyes & it is a clean entertainer without a trace of double meaning dialogue/vulgarity.

A film for the family.
