Storyline

Dev Kumar Verma comes from a middle-class family and must find employment to support his dad and mom. Dev, however, has set his mind upon becoming a music sensation like Elvis Presley. He loses his job because of this, and refuses to work until and unless he gets a job to his liking, much to the dismay of his parents and his brother, Shiv Kumar. Dev does get employment at Charlie's Disco, where he meets with Maya and falls in love with her. When Charlie's Disco's competitor, Rana, finds out about Dev, he wants to hire Dev, but Dev decides to continue to work with Charlie's Disco, as a result Dev and Charlie get a beating by Rana's men, and Dev is unable to sing. After recuperating, Dev is devastated to find out that Maya and Shiv Kumar are in love with each other. What impact will this have on Dev and his brother on one hand, and what of his career in music?

This film features one of the hottest soundtracks of the eighties. Giving a distictive pop feel to the whole film, and features famous numbers by artists such as Nazia Hussain, with her famous BOOM BOOM number. The story is about a young and budding wannabee star and his strugle to get noticed. Kumar Gaurav's acting is not at its best at times and feels rather flat at times and story though interesting, lacks punch! The saving point is really the fantasic soundtrack and well picturised songs. If you can find the soundtrack buy it. The film, I'm not sure...
