The kindhearted
15 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

That's Rishi Kapoor's role in this film, which is not a very good film but still entertaining to an extent. The story revolves around what happens when his character Amrit is mistaken for a wealthy man named Mr. Sinha's son in-law. Sinha opposed to his daughter Juhi's marriage to a man named Vijay, and she left home. Years later, when Juhi already had a son, Sinha started missing his daughter and asked her to come back. On her way to visit her father, Juhi's husband is killed in a train accident, and Juhi disappears. The little kid is found alive and Amrit is brought to Sinha's house, mistaken for Vijay. From then on begins a chain of lies, and Amrit cannot reveal his true identity because it could kill Sinha. At that time he falls for Juhi's younger sister Reshmi. But some time later, Juhi is returned home, and she is diagnosed with temporary amnesia. That's the basic story of the movie, and it is an okay 80s fare, which would be enjoyed by lovers of Hindi cinema only. The dialogues, the proceedings and almost everything else in the movie wavers between good and bad. The only thing that is consistent in it is the music. R.D Burman creates another brilliant soundtrack which gives the film a certain charm the script did not manage to give. Songs like "Jeevan Ke Din" and "Kahin Na Jaa" are classics. Rishi Kapoor is quite good in his leading role. Tina Munim is lovely and hot. Pran is good as usual, so is Amjad Khan, and Sarika is wonderful as Juhi. Bade Dilwala is an average movie but it has its moments, and the music is, as said, excellent.
