Watch it for the touching performances of Rekha and children......
9 June 2016 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Jhutha Sach" means a fake truth; and the film depicts one such personality, a temporary look alike of a deceased father, a step-mom hires for her children to hide the truth of their father's death in an accident. The film offers a lot of sweetness through the innocent performances of the children. The innocent questions the two kids put to their father forms the best part of the film. Rekha also portrays a nice motherhood of a stepmom that's also pretty touching. Dharmendra in the role of a widowed father is impressive.

Despite the goodness in the story, the film hasn't been able to free itself from the formulaic movies of '80s. The criminal role of Dharmendra as a look alike father and unnecessary cabaret and fights highly takes the leverage from the film and keeps it an ordinary affair. Had the film been just family oriented and devoid of regular bad guys like Amrish Puri, the film could have been lot better. Still I liked the film for the childhood innocence and the motherhood it depicts.
