Storyline

Shyam an ambitious young man is in Mauritius to fulfill his dreams. He meets Rukmini, a millionaire's daughter. They fall in love and get married despite strong opposition from Rukmani's stepmother and brother. Shyam would love to be a father, but Rukmani undergoes an operation to stop any pregnancy, as she is least interested in becoming a mother. This widens the gap between the couple. Rukmini even suspects Shyam of having an illicit relationship with Radha, a librarian. Rukmini's stepmother and uncle, who have an eye on Rukmini's wealth, further fuel the misunderstanding to the point of breaking their marriage. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

A tear jerker of a movie
24 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Souten was released in 1983 after Avtaar & went on to become a super hit, paving the way for Rajesh Khanna's comeback. The film is a tear jerker & a bit long for 3 hours but keeps you interested.

Tina Munium has done well but Padmini Kolhapure walks away with the honors though why she sheds so much of tears is a mystery.

Feminists will not agree with her depiction & also the climax but the audience lapped it up.

Rajesh Khanna, though aging keeps pace with Tina in the romantic sequences & acquits himself creditably in the emotional sequences, particularly in the second half. Prem Chopra is villainous though comical. Shriram Lagoo could have been utilized better.

The songs are melodious & the song "Zindagi Pyaar Ka Geet Hai" was the most popular song of 1983.

The film was released when the Rajesh-Tina romance was just beginning & added to the curiosity factor about the film.

Saawan Kumar Tak is not a very good director but he comes up trumps this time around.
