Widowed and wealthy Durgadas Prasad is the sole owner of Shriman Mills. He has one son, who falls in love with a woman from a poor family. This disappoints Durgadas and he asks his son to leave. His son leaves, gets married, and soon has a son. Unfortunately, Durgadas's son does not live for long, leaving his wife and son destitute. Durgadas has a change of heart and goes around looking for his son and his family, but in vain. Years later Durgadas is much more older and not expected to live long. He recruits a Secretary, Gayetri, who looks after him. Then when his relatives insist that he adopt his distant nephew, Anokhey, he agrees, only to have Gayetri bring home a young man, Billoo, who operates a simple Dal Roti restaurant. Durgadas is jubilant when he verifies that Billoo is indeed his grandson and throws a grand party. After the party, Durgadas passes away, leaving everything in Billoo's hands. Billoo changes his name to Balraj and starts to look after his grandfather's business... Written by rAjOo (

A Full Time Pass Flick!!!
15 September 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

The story is about a grandfather who is looking for his grandson which has been adopted by a chef of a simple local restaurant. The movie goes on leap then Dharmendra has three little sisters which were daughters of the chef who adopted him. The parents died and Dharmendra looks after them along with this foster father's restaurant. There comes in Saira Banu and they fall in love. Watch to find what happens next! The movie is not at all boring but these days you may not find it that tempting. Cinematography is OK so as the choreography. Dharmendra performed very nicely. Music by Laxmikant Pyarelal is very good. This movie features some best songs such as "Rootha hai to manalein gay", "Dal Roti Khao". Lyrics and dialogues by Rajinder Krishan is good. I would rate it as 7/10 as it drags a bit after the first half. But performances and music can overcome it.
