Worth watching!!!

8/10

Having watched a few movies, I was a fan of Sanjeev Kumar's(Haribhai) performance. I wanted to give a try to this movie with an anticipation that will be a time-pass murder mystery. The movie wasn't a mystery. It was a story of a man for whom his world was his wife. He even loses his eyesight on the pretext of saving her life. But what does he get in return? Taking advantage of his blindness, his wife stages an illicit affair with his own friend. A friend who claims to be his best friend. Love-grieved by her unfaithfulness, back-stabbed by his friend and with physical disability, it could have been easy for him to continue what has been going on. But he decides to teach both of them a lesson. How he does that forms rest of the plot. Till this point the movie is good. From here on the movie turns out excellent. This movie is underrated and did not get the applause it deserved. A superb performance by late Haribhai, as a blind man plotting a task which would seem impossible for a blind person. He was a gem of an actor and had he been alive for few more years, we could have seen more of his good performances. Alas. The story is well written and well executed. Rest of the cast(Sarika, Ranjeeta and Marc Zuber) have justified their characters. The movie lacks in technicality. The picturization and presentation were not to the mark where the story was. This could be due to low budget. Overall, this movie is not worth missing for Haribhai's fans. If you are not his fan, after watching the movie you surely will be.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sanjeev Kumar plays Rakesh ,a Stage superstar helps Sarika to become a good and successful actress..He also has a Producer friend in the stage played by Marc Zuber, a lusty playboy who believes in casting couch. During drama performance, Sanjeev saves his wife's certain accidental death and in turn severely injured and loses his eyesight. Being blind man he completely trusts his wife to be faithful and discreet , and even hires a Nurse( Ranjeeta) and slowly learns to do things by himself including walk outside on his own etc..But to his shock he learns that his wife and his friend are two timing him and are having a brazen affair exploiting his blindness... Some of the scenes are very sexy and may be the Movie deserved a 'A' Certificate..Be careful with whom you watch this one... Sanjeev is heartbroken and plans an elaborate vengeance to take his unfaithful wife's life.And the story is taut and screenplay good...All the leading actors creditably perform..Music is so-so..Good for a lazy rainy afternoon...
