Storyline

Widower Ram Kapoor lives a very wealthy lifestyle in Bombay, but is very lonely, as his only child, a son named Rajesh, lives abroad, and his aged dad, Diwan Bahadur, lives in the village. Ram frequently throws lavish parties to overcome this loneliness. This changes when Rajesh returns home, and he is able to convince Diwan also to return so that the three could live together. Shortly thereafter differences crop up between Rajesh and Diwan - initially on love and marriage; then on Caste issues; then the marriage of Rajesh, which is arranged with Diwan's friend, Thakur Janak Singh's daughter, Rukmani, while Rajesh wants to marry Monica. Things come to such a pass that Ram decides to leave, takes to women and alcohol in a big way, and becomes the subject of a big scandal. Ram returns home after Diwan and Rajesh apologize and agree to live together in harmony. This harmony does not last long as soon Ram finds out that his very own father and son had conspired against him in a charade to... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Saga of three generations!
8 September 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Randhir Kapoor's directorial debut film! The movie is based on how three generations live under one roof but with different opinions. The movie is a time-pass. The grandfather and grandson always had difference in thoughts while the father always tries to makeup between them. In the end, the grandfather dies giving the message that it is KAL AAJ AUR KAL. Performances are good especially Raj Kapoor's performance is very fine. He played a nice father and an obedient son. Shankar-Jaikishan's music is fine. I liked the song "Aap Yahaan Aye Kisliye Aap Ne Bulaaya Isliye". I would rate it as 7.5/10. One would not get bored while watching it.
