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 excellent film with full of emotion and humanity
29 July 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie central characterized by the Super Star Actor and Pride of the Film Industry- Mr. Rajesh Khanna, the king of love and emotion. The character characterized by him in this film as a Riksha Pooler is an unique example of classic performance. No body in the Indian cinema would have been able to do justice with this character, which is full of emotion and human relation based only on humanitarian ground. In my opinion, it is one of the landmark films of Rajesh Khanna, where he performed a character, which is totally non-glamorous character. It is unbelievable that it is the same performer who performed in the glamorous characters in Prem Nagar, Amar Deep, Dhanwaan, Red Rose, etc.
