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.

An emotional drama
6 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Babu released in 1984 was an emotional tear jerker which was a remake of a Shivaji Ganeshan super hit. Babu revolves around the central character Babu played by Super Star Rajesh Khanna. Babu is a rickshaw puller in Calcutta who starts to care for a family which had fed him once and are now facing financial problem. Bauu sacrifices his youth and his life for the sake of the family. The movie has excellent performance by Rajesh Khanna who has acted in his usual style steals the show in an era when there were violent, multi starer movies which were a major hit. He is ably supported by Hema Malini, Navin Nishchol, Mala Sinha, Rati Agnihotri,Madan Puri and Roopesh Kumar. The music by Rajesh Rohan is melodious and I would recommend this movie to all people who like to see family dramas. It is a must for Rajesh Khanna's fans as he acts in his usual style and steals the show and makes the audience wet their handkerchief.
