While looking for employment, Chandrakant is mistaken for the son of a wealthy landlord by Prabhudas, who wants him to marry his only daughter, Shanti. By the time they find out the truth, it is too late, both Chandrakant and Shanti have fallen in love, and are soon married. With lots of hard work, and dedication, Chandrakant is able to build small empire, and they too enjoy some wealth and wellbeing. Shanti gives birth to a son, Ravi. Years pass, Shanti has passed away, and Chandrakant is filled with regret that he did not spend much time with her, as he was busy accumulating wealth. Ravi is in love with Manorama, and does marry her. But then he too is caught up in making money, like his dad. And unlike Shanti, Manorama will not compromise with this situation, unless Ravi changes his lifestyle, which he may not be willing to do so. Written by rAjOo (

Thirsty Rain!!
23 September 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

How can rain be thirsty?? Well this is an idiomatic expression which has been defined by this film beautifully. Jeetendra plays this role distinctively. Chandrakant (Old Jeetendra) marries a rich girl (played by Moushami Chatterjee) but they have no house to live and jeetu has no job either. However he gets some job and soon establishes a huge business. Later he gets no time for his wife and son Ravikant (Young Jeetendra)and eventually Moushami dies of illness. This is Pyaasa Sawana all about. They had money, riches, son, love but still could not spend splendid moments with each other. Then a leap of 20 years Ravikant marries Reena Roy after falling in love with her and history repeats itself. Watch out what happens with this couple??? Will they have the same destiny as his parents had?

I would rate this movie as 9.6/10. It is a must see if you believe in love, affection, spending moments of love together and destiny. Soundtrack by Laxmikant Pyarelal is superb. Each song has some entertainment to give. Be it "MEGHA RE MEGHA" an excellent melodious number by Lata and Suresh Wadkar, "O MERE CHAMAK CHHALO" a romantic funny number by Asha and Kishore and "TERE SAATH HAI JO MUJHE KYA KAMI HAI ANDHERON MEIN BHI MIL RAHI ROSHNI HAI" a Lata's solo number which conveys emotions of married life is also worth listening. Santosh Anand's lyrics are too good. Direction is also fine along with cinematography and editing.
