good movie if you have time to spare
11 February 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie has Manoj Kumar in a patriotic role (yes..yet again)Siara Banu has acted pretty well...she must have been pretty daring to smoke and drink in a movie when all the other actresses were struggling to keep a good image. Bharat is a patriotic Indian who's father was an Independence fighter He goes to London and is disappointed to see that the NRI's staying there criticized everything Indian and were wasting their life away. Prithi(Siara Banu) is one such NRI who falls in love with Bharat but refuses to go back to India with him. Bharat also meets Harnam(Prem Chopra) who is Bharat's father's friend's son and he likes Prithi too. In the end, Prithi agrees to go to India with Bharat and stay there temporarily. Conclusion : All's well that end's well and Prithi gives up all her bad habits (smoking, drinking etc)and finally starts loving India.
