A village story well told
26 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Aanchal is a village story of two brothers. It stars Super Star Rajesh Khanna with Amol Palekar, Raakhee and Rekha. The movie revolves around these four characters and with a bit of Prem Chopra related confusions which are sorted out in the end. It is a typical village story which is memorable because of great performance by Super Star Rajesh Khanna and very good music by R D Burman. The reason one should watch the movie is for its simplicity and the way it has been mounted. Rajesh Khanna is as usual good with a little bit of comedy, romance, action and drama. He pulls this average character as the main character of the movie. A must see family drama and a must for Rajesh Khanna fans.
