Sarat Chandra's very poignant story very well made by Gulzar
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A child marriage broken off before adolescence because of land disputes between two families has Kusum (Hema Malini) feeling lonesome for she is adhering to the vows made when she was but a child, even though in a fit of despair she has tried to burn off all memories of her betrothal, including the tattoo on her arm.

Brindaban (Jeetendra), her betrothed and now a doctor, returns with his young son Charan (Master Rajoo) and the meeting of the two is triggered by a sickness in Kusum's village. Poignancy flows with tenderness from Sarat Chandra's pen as the story unfolds, and Kusum's antagonism fades towards Brindaban as his perceived infidelity from his marriage to now-deceased Lakhi/Kamla (Sharmila Tagore) turns out to be yet another case of unjust separation ....

A natural bond of mother and son develops between Kusum and Charan, and watching them together is a delight.

Will Kusum and Brindaban reconcile their differences?

Masterfully woven into 2+ Hours of very touching screenplay, Sampooran Singh Gulzar gives us the viewers many moist-eyes moments, with some very lilting music from Rahul Dev Burman. Kishore Kumar's rendition of 'O Maajhi re' is superb.
