Storyline

Raj Malhotra and wife Pooja have four sons. The sons have settled down professionally and are quite independent. However, when Raj Malhotra retires, none of his children want to be burdened with the responsibility of taking care of their parents. Strangely, it is the adopted son who proves to be the most kind hearted of them all. Salman's girlfriend eventually marries him. The question is, will Raj and Pooja's sons learn the folly of their ways and turn over a new leaf? Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Previous versions of this story
22 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There have been several movies with the exact same theme, some of which I enumerate below

School Master (1958) - a masterpiece in Kannada by B.R.Panthulu School Master (1959) - remade by Panthulu himself in Hindi Zindagi (1976) - Starring Sanjeev Kumar and Mala Sinha

I believe there is at least one version each in Telugu (late 50s or 60s), Tamil (60s) and Malayalam (70s?).

It would be a worthwhile exercise to see the changing social context depending on when this story has been filmed. IMO, the 1958 version is a must-see.
