Storyline

Two close and devout Muslim youth, Javed and Akhtar, are childhood pals. They both unknowingly fall in love with the same woman, Firdaus. Since Akhtar is wealthy, and comes from a noble family, the girl's dad, Nawab Mirza, decides that she should marry Akhtar. She is reluctant to do so, but finally agrees when she is threatened. Akhtar has not yet seen Firdaus, but finds out that Javed also loves her, and he decides to marry her, and promptly divorce her by saying "Talaq" three times, so that Javed can marry her later. Javed is delighted with this idea and goes along with it, not knowing that Firdaus is Akhtar's dreamgirl, and he may not be able to keep his word and divorce her.

A whiff of fresh air in these times...
21 December 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on TV today out of sheer boredom, I decided to watch it. I must say, a very restrained performance from jumping jack jeetu, and chintu excels in his Urdu dialog delivery. The movie is authentic and dialogs classic. The story might seem cheesy for a few (a love triangle) but the movie should be seen not for the story but for the period, acting and language. Rekha supports well with her tawayuff character. Watch the movie if you are a nostalgic film buff of the late seventies and early eighties. This movie seems to be one of the chosen few...nay...the only one to be made on the grand Urdu culture of Lucknow and Muslim Northern India of the past, replete with its full glory and perhaps, debauchery and filthy wealth of its Nawabs.

Nawabi andaaz all the way!
