Listen to your conscience
17 June 2012 | by (La Rochelle, France) – See all my reviews

I've just finished seeing this movie. Making a review is not an easy task, but I will try doing it, for those who enjoy watching old Hindi movies, and of course for those who are fans of Dharmendra and Hema Malini.

The movie, show us, how a person can transform from an honest one into a great mobster who is not listening his conscience any more.

Sunny (Dharmendra) is very much in love with Mona (Hema Malini). One day, Sunny saves a man's life, without knowing that this person is the chief of a maritime company ( company that in fact makes illicit deeds). He does not accept the offer of working with him, nor his money, saying he is honest and he can never make an illegal thing.

On the other hand, Mona's father is indebted with another thief (the one who wanted to kill the chief of the maritime company). Mona is forced to marry this guy, if she want's that her father's life continue in no danger.

And here, interferes the old choice between listening your conscience or listening to your heart. Once again the heart wins. Sunny agrees eventually to work for the mobster, and like that he is able to pay the credit of Mona's father. He eventually marries Mona, and becomes himself the brain of all the illegal operation of the company. Mona in fact has now idea that her husband, Sunny, from a good and honest fellow has transformed in a wholesale liar.

One day, after seeing the doctor and finding that they will be parents, Sunny and Mona, have an accident. Mona, who is full of faith, manages to make Sunny understand that he has to give up his life of illicit deeds in order to keep his wife. In this accident he meets Ram (Jeetendra).

Decided to give up his life as a smuggler, Sunny undertakes a last operation, before giving up with all.

And of course he is almost caught. He manages to escape, but after giving up his disguise, he is sen, by no other then Ram (Jeetendra).

Eventually Sunny is arrested, together with Mona in whose umbrella are found some missing diamonds. For saving Mona from going to jail, Sunny explains to Ram in which circumstances he became a smuggler and swear that he will give up that life and that the diamond's business was the last one in which he would have been participating.

Ram, does not believe him, and decides to declare against him at the trial. And from this decision things degenerate, in a continuing pursuit of Sunny getting rid of Ram.

I am letting you discover the final. For those who know and love the pair Dharmendra Hema Malini, it will be a delight to see their love story put on screen (because on the time when the movie was made they were already married). Their interpretation is great, like the one of Jeetendra and Reka of course.

My note is 8/10. I did not quite enjoy the final though it's a good one.
