Nishan - super-hit time pass movie, rare multi-star movie with Rajesh Khanna
11 March 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Nishan is one of the few multi-star movies which Rajesh Khanna did. Rajesh Khanna told in an interview that he always did movies of different genres - adventure, political satire, comedy,melodrama, social, action, family movies, character with negative shade etc.. so he accepted movies of formula films in between just to unwind himself from the serious films. Nishan is a film with plot of long lost brothers uniting at the end of the film. Kishore Kumar sings all the 3 songs picturized on Khanna and the film was Superhit at the box office. Rajesh Khanna has rarely done movies which are having low class Hindi dialog like in most of Amitabh's trademark multi star movies like Nastik, Insaniyat, Coolie,Mard or Mithun Govinda Anil Kapoor type (mouthing cheap street Hindi vocabulary & plot being miserable life) and this film and Dharam Kanta are the multi-star formula movies where we get to see Rajesh Khanna doing such films(both with childhood friend Jeetendra).
