Trivia

Mirza brothers had written the script of dhanwan with rajesh khanna in mind and their condition was, that rajesh khanna only would play the tittle role.

A classic characterization of negative character
1 August 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The film contains very good story with classic performance of Rajesh Khanna in a negative role (till interval) and then as a changed person with positive thinking. Rajesh Khanna played both the contradictory shades of the character in this film as a superb performer with brilliant depth touches of inner feelings of human being and it is beyond doubt that no other Indian actor/star would have been able to do real justice with this character in his comparison. The proudy look, which he reflects through his facial expression is an outstanding example for Indian film world. At the same time his facial expression in the Hospital, where he was admitted during his blind-ness, occurred due to an accident, is simply brilliant, wherein he shows his helplessness due to non-availability of pair of eyes to be transplanted in him. This scene can not be expressed with words, it is only a depth feeling of any human being.
