This film is an absolute delight for Rajesh Khanna films. In the first half of the film, he plays an arrogant rich man who thinks money can buy anything in this world. Then he loses his eye sight & on regaining it, comes to know that the donor, Rakesh Roshan is no more. He then tries to make amends to Rakesh's wife Reena Roy & her son & wins their faith in the end.

Reena Roy & Rakesh Roshan have given fine performances. The music by Hridhaynath Mangeshkar is pretty good. The film is ably directed by Surendra Mohan who keeps the films going with good twists & turns.

But the movie belongs to the Superstar Rajesh Khanna. He looks handsome & his costumes are excellent. The Hindu in its review said " Rajesh Khanna breaks fresh ground providing the wanted depth".

When I watched it in the theatre, there were whistles & claps in the the scene where he purchases all the tickets for the Reena Roy show & tears it in front of her to show his superiority.

There are many other scenes where Kaka excels - the scene where Kaka makes Shakti Kapoor to confess, his helplessness when he is blind, his expressions in the Holi song etc.,

Rajesh Khanna has proved many a time that he can hold his own even in heroine oriented films & "Dhanwan" is no exception.
