A Star Studded '80s Blockbuster with the Regular Formula.....
Dramas blended with crimes, smuggling, revenge, lost children, and reuniting have been an instant recipe of most of the Hindi Movies from '60s. By the time this film came, the story has been seen so many times that there remains nothing new to be explored. The story is familiar, the villains are well known, the characters are buyest, music and songs if not mediocre are still not very memorable. A sequence if I'm not mistaken is taken straight from the Oscar Winning "The Sting" in which Rishi Kapoor steals cash. If something is good in this movie, it's an impressive performance from Thespian Dilip Kumar and a cameo by Saira Banoo. Dilip Kumar made yet an another remarkable performance in "Mashal" in the same year. Today the film if remains watchable is only for the due respect to him. Lastly, with this review, I would like to pay a homage to Late Sulabha Despande, who appears in a brief role in the film. Sadly I got the news of her demise while I was watching the movie. She should be remembered for her modest roles in social dramas like Pet Pyar Aur Paap, Bahu Ki Awaaz, Kamla, and many more.
