Storyline

Renowned Indian astrologer Jyotibhaskar Pandit Satyanarayan Chaturvedi, wishes a doctor, who is about to perform surgery on a woman, good luck, but also tells him that his patient is going to die. The doctor scoffs at this, and proceeds to the operation theatre. The patient dies, and the doctor is humbled before the astrologer. The astrologer lives with his wife, Devki, and an only son, Nandu. Nandu is of marriageable age, and he would like to see him get married to a woman named Indu Agnihotri. But Nandu loves another woman by the name of Sushma Chatopadhya and is determined to marry her. And then his father tells him that he is fated to have two wives in this lifetime - the first will die within eleven months of the marriage - and that's when he will re-marry. Modern-day educated Nandu must now decide to believe his father and let go of Sushma, or defy his astrological beliefs and marry her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Cheat your fate
30 March 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

For starters, this movie proves what a fine story-teller Amol Palekar is. He drops his garb of a simple lovable person next door and dons the role of a selfish lover (as Big B in Silsila) and attempts to cheat his fate. What follows next is the turmoil of human mind. How far could a person go living with a guilt? And is life about cutting losses and opting for a lesser sin?

Vinod Mehra has a minuscule role, but drives home very valid points home.

Shreeram Lagoo is at his usual best.

Deepti Naval steals the show, though the role has shades of Smita Patil of Arth.

Devika Mukherjee barely leaves a mark.

Amol Palekar, as an actor and director - hats off!!

Songs of Bhimsen Joshi are noteworthy.

If you have to watch this movie, then watch it for a story teller who is at his budding stage.

Bottomline:: We are all blessed with freewill.
