Orphaned at a very young age, not aware of his religion nor his background, a young man is taken-in by a gangster and trained to accept crime as his career. This young man grows up to be a dreaded gangster himself by the name of Master. He works for another rich and powerful gangster by the name of Paul, who assigns him work for hefty fees. One day Master comes across an abandoned child, and decides to adopt the child. This changes his life, and he decides to go straight and give up on all criminal activities. That's when he finds out that getting honest employment is a lot more difficult that living a life of crime. Just when he is about to give up, he witnesses some men attempting to molest a woman, and he comes to her rescue. This woman is a well-known artiste by the name of Roopadevi, who decides to help Master out, and gives him a loan to open his own garage.

A Bollywood Masala!
8 September 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Directed by J. Om Prakash who always made movies that had starting letter "A". For instance, his other work include Aasha, Arpan, Aap Ki Kasam, Aas Ka Panchi, Aap Ke Saath and many more.

Well the movie is based on Rekha (Roopadevi) who loses her child on truck where she stopped at a well to quench her thirst with water. The child's father died so as Rekha's so she was travelling on her foot and during such travelling this incident takes place. She then comes to city and becomes a singer and a performer. The child lives with Jeetendra (Master) who was the truck driver and later they unite when Rekha founds back her son and Jeetendra as her Love.

Technically the movie is good. No major flaws. One could enjoy watching it. What i liked the most of it was its soundtrack! Laxmikant-Pyarelal's music and good lyrics penned by Anand Bakshi. Lataji's two songs are marvelous one is a duet with Kishore Kumar and other is solo. The best song is Asha Bhonsle's "Apne Apne Miya Pe Sab Ko Bada Naz Hai". Kalpna Iyer's 80s item number "Jalne ki raat hai ya jaalane ki raat hai" was fine to watch. "Dil Kehta Hai Main Sunti Hoon" by Lata and Kishore is a fine romantic song.

I would rate this movie as 8.5/10 because of its soundtrack.
