Storyline

Babu is a naive young man who likes to go out of his way to help people. He has fallen in love with Kammo, but in the process of helping another, he lands himself in jail for two years. After his discharge, he finds that a lady who had once helped him, is now a destitute widow with a small child, Pinky. He decides to help them, puts his personal life on hold, drives a hand-drawn rickshaw, saves some money, so that he can buy provisions for them, as well as send Pinky to a decent school. She attends school, but ends up a snob, who is clearly embarrassed by her poor mom, and cannot stand Babu, making them both wonder if it was worthwhile investing so much time and energy over an ungrateful child.

Emotional drama
27 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Babu is the remake of a tamil film by the same name with the legendary Sivaji Ganesan playing the title role. It was directed by A.C.Trilokchander who also directs the Hindi version.

It is a good emotional role & suits Rajesh khanna perfectly. He plays a rickshaw puller who supports a family which has lost its bread winner. The film is well directed & all the supporting actors - Mala Sinha, Rati agnihotri etc have done well. Deepak Parashar however is wooden.

Hema malini plays a guest role.

Music By rajesh roshan is average. The minus point is the sometimes slow pace of the film & dialogue by Amrish Puri is quite preachy at times.

The film took a fantastic initial of over 80% collections in the 1st week, but it fell in the 2nd week & subsequently settled to an average hit category.

This film is a must watch for audiences who like family fare sans violence or vulgarity.
