Sensitive movie with super music score by R.D. Burman
7 April 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Just one of those of many '70's movies from the Hindi film industry that makes one wonder, "Why don't they make movies like this anymore?" Sensitively directed by Gulzar and a superlative performance by Hema Malini makes this touching movie a must-see. Incidentally, "Kinara" exploits Hema's classical dancing talent to the hilt. Jeetendra is just lucky he got such movies to act in (also "Khushboo" and "Parichay").

The ultimate scene stealer though, is music composer Rahul Dev Burman. Each song is a gem. Every song touches you deep within, leaving you wanting more. With soulful nuggets such as "Meri awaaz hi", "Ab ke na saawan barse", "Jaane kya sochkar", "Koi nahi hai kahin", you wonder why the musical genius (as usual) didn't win an award for his superb work.
