Two directions. What does a man do when he is torn in two directions. Two women and social values.
27 January 2014 | by (New Zealand / India) – See all my reviews

Aroo is brought up by Ajit in comfortable circumstances, as a single parent. One day, little Aroo sets out to buy a mother. He does manage to buy a mother. But what about his real mother?

When the blood mother, and the foster mother come face to face, it creates a dilemma for Ajit and his aunt. The loyal family retainer, through his comic simplicity is rather pivotal in the plot development.

During Ajoo's wedding reception, a thief is caught. But she did not come to steal? Why did she come to the reception?

In a series of flashbacks, the story-line progresses, till the viewer is convinced that all the main players acted in good faith. Obligatory villains do their bit to thwart good intentions.

Can Aroo ever acknowledge his real mother as his own?

There are a few location sequences such as the Century Bazar in Worli, a couple of Versova shots and repetitive Kulu and Kashmir outdoors. Mostly shot in studios, the editing is good, camera work is a bit spotty, direction and acting is better than average. Dharmendra runs pretty much true to type. Hema Malini displays her versatility in playing the mother and the foster mother. In the view of this reviewer, she excels in the role of the biological mother.

Worth watching - Bollywood in 2014 would not get away with some of the dialogues. But then this movie was released in 1982. Recommended.
