Poignant tale of guilt and repentance
29 September 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Here is a tender and touching movie about an ill fated Classical dancer ( Hema as Arati)who is in mourning as her fiancé Prof Chandan ( Dharmendra) has died in a car accident. She gives up dancing and wants to publish his history research as a parting gift. Jeetendra (Inder) is a modern young architect who loves fast cars and faster music.He meets up with the dancer in Mandu fort and finds out to his shock that the accident he caused led to her fiancé's death. Ridden with guilt he tries his best to make it up for her (as Prakash) and pay it forward . But he once again causes another accident in her life. The rest of the movie is about the unfortunate well-meaning young man Jeetendra and how he tries to bring about positive changes in Hema, the dancer despite her resistance and obvious dislike for him.. The movie is very sensitive , moves slowly but gracefully like a royal elephant, serene and languid, but never boring. Kudos to its ace film maker Gulzar.

It has gem of a music track scored by R D Burman who comes up with classical numbers like Naam gum Jaayega, Jaane kya sochkar and Meethe Bol Bole etc..Hema dances her 3 kathak and Bharatnatyam numbers with grace and elegance and it is worthwhile dekho just for that.
