Storyline

The saga of Mazhuddin Khan alias Immi, born in 1939 in Bombay, British India, as a eunuch, whose mother, Zeenat, in denial that she has sired him, refers to him as her younger brother. She attains fame, has an affair with Inder Kumar Bhalla, only to lose him years later to a younger actress, Chitra. Embittered, she sets out to seek vengeance, takes to gambling and alcohol, isolates and alienates herself from the film-world, and then must also deal with the news that Immi has become the 'father' of a male child, Murad.

Trivia

Shahrukh Khan was signed for Arif Zakaria's role. But his commercial value as a star had risen very high by 1996. Shahrukh felt the audience would not accept him in a role of a transvestite. He backed out at the last hour causing the director to find a last minute replacement. See more »

Arif Zakaria steals the show not just with his act as eunuch but also driving into the compelling psyche of how one goes while being in their shoes...

Very rare it happens that such films talks about their issue in a correct way without going melodramatic or cheesy and this one actually promises you on the former while making you thinking about the lives of eunuch and how it miserable it becomes over the years when they step in society and among the people who consider them as inconsiderable.

Talking about the film and other performances, where we have Kiron Kher, Tabu, Sayaji Shinde, Rita Gangul essaying important roles while also playing their roles with full powerhouse acting, we have a good film that looks better but gets bogged down with story not making up to the level the actors did their acting. Writing also looks better at points and at times, but like story never goes above the normal.Same with music and songs.

At last, it will be hard for you to get this film so on YT, there is this film so go and have the watch right now because it is one of the best made films in Indian cinema with Tamanna and Sadak being in same field.
