Story of two mothers claiming the same child, one who gave birth and the other who raised him
13 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aulad is a story of conflict between the biological mother of child and the person who brought him up giving all the love of a mother but he was not his child. I have seen another movie with Rajendra Kumar and Meena Kumari made in the late fifties with the title "Chirag Kahan Roshni Kahan" with the same story line. In fact I heard one line of the song "Mere Ghore Tik Tik Tik" in Aulad also. Under special circumstances where his wife died suddenly or presumed dead, the father Anand ( Jeetendra ) gives up his child to Yashoda ( Jayaprada ) because his own wife Devki ( Sridevi ) is presumed dead in a train accident and Yashoda's child did not survive the complications during child birth. Both Sridevi and Jayapada give commendable performances as the two mothers claiming the only surviving child who was brought up by Yashoda and was claimed by Devki as her own. Saeed Jaffrey as the uncle of Anand acted well. I have seen him before in Gandhi as Sardar Patel. He definitely looked a lot slimmer than he was in Gandhi, probably because Gandhi told him in the movie to slim down. Jeetendra was fine in the role of the father and also did well with his antics in the first part of the movie which was more of a comedy. The movie turned into serious melodrama after the train accident but moved very well with a very good script. The music was average and so was the cinematography. Sridevi's street dance sequence was very enjoyable and she just excelled in it. If you are a Jeetendra Sridevi pair fan – watch this movie. You will like it. I gave it a seven out of ten.
