Storyline

Suraj has been a slacker all his adult life. He hates any kind of work - rather it's paying or volunteer. One day he gate-crashes a wedding ceremony and finds out that the groom is to live with his In-laws. To his delight, he finds out that the bride has an unmarried sister. And so Suraj starts to woo the unmarried sister, Geeta. Slowly Geeta falls in love with Suraj, and with the approval of her wealthy dad, Rai Bahadur Chunilal Sanghvi, both get married. Suraj now looks forward to an easy life at his In-laws, but that is not to be so, for Geeta wants to move out. Suraj goes along with Geeta, but then starts showing his true colors, and openly demands a share in his wealthy father-in-law's estate, even if it means taking the family to court.

a nice 80s family drama representing a social problem..... well directed and performed.....
13 October 2015 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

The specialty of 80s movies remain the stories based on social problems , which are severely lacking these days. "Kaamchor" is also based on a social problem with a well mounted story with right touches of wit and emotions which will grip you till the end. The film is an inspiration for the lazy youths, yearning to success without any effort, to work hard to reach their destiny. The treatment may look a bit plain, few loopholes appear in the story, and goes for a bit of glibness in the end. Despite this, the film has succeeded to bring an important social issue into the light and even shown a right alternative. Rakesh Roshan in the title role suites well, and other characters played by Tanuja, Shree Ram Lagoo, Suresh Oberoi also look appropriate. Songs and photography are nice, but its the way of storytelling which brings a clarity to the plot and theme it tries to develop with some wittiness.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
