This is an excellent movie - Story of love and circumstances!
5 January 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There are no villains and no heroes. Circumstances have dictated their lives as is in any real life. This may be one of Rekha's best movies. She just looked like a million bucks and acted like an Oscar winner. Not only Rekha but the entire cast lived in the film (I wish they could have selected different kid). I especially enjoyed not having "specialty comic relief nonsense" that Indian movies can't do without. Delicate story line told in a no nonsense manner. Screen play is Gulzarish, with heart poured out in every dialogue -- nonfilmi dialogue. Gulzar's lyrics enhance the mediocre music. The title song (not the tune) is just great. But then this movie is not about the songs, it is all about feelings and how each character expressed them in their own special way. A must see.
