Kashiram lives a poor lifestyle in a small village along with his wife, Chanda; two school-going children, Suraj and Meera; and makes a living selling toys. When his father-in-law falls ill, Chanda and the children travel by boat to see him, but the trio perish when the boat meets with an accident. Devastated, Kashiram turns to alcohol but still continues to sell toys for a living. Four children, Ram, Rahim, Tom and Rani, decide that the only way Kashiram can be happy is by becoming a father, so they select the village's naive flower-selling belle, Lajwanti, to bear him a child. When Kashiram finds out he is quite amused, but undecided whether to marry or not. Then when Kundan attempts to molest Lajwanti, Kashiram comes to her rescue and warms Kundan not to molest anyone or else he will be killed.

A watchable kids movie
19 January 2014 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

A very nice family drama basically meant for kids. The very well made & said story is about kids' quest for their parents' love but Nakiram's angle is included just to make it a 150 minutes long feature film. However, it still watchable. Sanjeev Kumar delivers yet another powerful performance. Three kids, Sachin, Jr.Mehmood and Shahid are excellent. Tanuja fill in the blanks very well. Keshto, Mukri and Anwar Hussain have done well. Very good Laxmi-Pyare music with songs; 1) Ari Muniya Ri Muniya, 2) O Mother Mary, 3) Balma Chhoti Si, 4) Pagli Mera Naam, 5) Parda Uthnewala Hai and immortal Rafi song 6) Aaya Re Khilonewala. You should watch it.
