Storyline

Chided by his family for being the absolute miser, wealthy industrialist Dhaniram (Kader Khan) loves his money as a mother loves a child. This does not auger well with his two sons, Ajay and Vijay (Shashi Kiran and Raj Kiran respectively). The two sons despise their father and find various ways to entrap him, but in vain. Dhaniram gets in the bad books of Income Tax Officer, D.O. Gogi (Shakti Kapoor), and as a result Gogi is arrested and imprisoned. His sister, Dolly (Roshini) and brother, Gulu (Gulshan Grover) both scheme a devious plot that will ensure the death of Dhaniram, and the control of his wealth will rest with them and Gogi.

One of the Best Bollywood Family Films
11 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

There have been many Family Movies in Bollywood. Family values work in Hindi Movies more then it does in Hollywood. There have been 1000s of Hindi Movies about family life with Jeetendra, Mithun and Rajesh Khanna being the regulars. Dariya Dil is one of the Best Family Drama's around. Its a simple story of a father who has a special bond for giving charity to the poor gets miss treated two of his sons. Govinda plays the Good son who respects his father. The other 2 sons are lazy and ill mannered. They treat their parents in a bizarre way and eventually kick them out of the house. Govinda does a good job in the role. Kimi Katkar is one of Bollywood's most annoying actresses, you'll know why if you see her films. It is Kader Khan who delivers a powerhouse performance as the struggling father. We can see a similar role in the Hit Amitabh movie Baghban. Baghban had a better finish where the father doesn't forgive the sons. Dariya Dil is a good family movie.
