Very nice 70s movie
1 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I won't repeat the story as other reviewers have described it well. Samadhi signifies the monument constructed by Dharmendra Sr. in memory of his beloved wife.

Dharmendra has acted well as a dacoit turned into a hard working yet unlucky man. The young, modern, dashing Dharmendra is also equally convincing. A very touching story focused on the senior Dharmendra.

Songs are beautiful. Kaata laga, jab tak rahen, jaan-e-jaanaa are all very melodious songs composed by RD. Overall, definitely worth watching once. Asha Parekh, Jaya Bhaduri have done a good job. Villain Madan Puri is passable.

Overall, it's a typical 70s movie. With action, songs, some comedy.
