Storyline

A zamindar and his family called "The Sooryavansh family" of Bharathpur village has a God like image among the villagers. This generation is headed by Thakur Bhanupratap Singh. He has 3 sons, the youngest, Heera he considers to be the black sheep, and most illiterate of the family, and he will not have anything to do with him. Deshraj Thakur, a village badman goes to jail as a result of the judgement given by the Panchayat headed by Bhanu Pratap and ignoring his own misdeeds develops vengeance against Bhanu Pratap. Bhanupratap is enraged when Heera proposes to marry his ward, Gauri; and even more angered when Heera flip-flops, albeit at the request of Gauri, and refuses to marry her. Heera is shunned by one and all in the family, including Gauri. And then Radha enters his life; she marries him; encourages him to live independently; and helps his business flourish. Soon they are blessed with birth of a son. In a strange situation Bhanu Pratap meets his grandson and friendship blossoms ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Very paternalistic
7 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most glaring drawback is failure to acknowledge the real heroes.

In the speech he did not mention Radha even once. Nor did he mention Kadar Khan's character who loaned him money to buy his first bus. He also failed to Anupam Kher's character who had been his best friend and even introduced him to Radha.

There are serious lapses in story. 1. Radha is shown very rude in the first encounter but then becomes

crazy about him. 2. It is unbelievable that she would give up to even appear for IAS since that was her only ambition. 3. It is never disclosed that his father had become sick due eating food

but still whole crowd knew it already.
