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.

Typical stuff
15 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In 80's social dramas were seen a lot Govinda- Vimal Kumar gave several ones like JAISI KARNI WAISI BHARNI

DARIYA DIL was one of Govinda's earlier releases in 1988 when Govinda's films weren't working before HATYA(1988)

The film is a typical family drama where Kader Khan's legitimate sons want to become rich and their wives too hatch plots.etc And their adopted son Govinda comes to their rescue

The film also has Kader Khan escaping death and returning with a new name which happens only in Hindi films Just a moustache and beard and you can't identify the person The film also has a song which has Govinda and the heroine dress as superman and women which has got lot of youtube likes recently till March 2013 which is really stupid.

The film also shows the turn of events wherein the sons become poor and how they learn a lesson and finally kill the villains

This film has a good message but the handling is too melodramatic which is what Hindi cinema was known for so no complains but the film is nothing great Music is okay Direction is adequate

Amongst actors Govinda looks young and does a decent job in his role which he kept doing again n again in SWARG, KARZ CHUKANA HAI, BHABHI.etc Kimi Katkar is okay, Roshni as Dolly is below average Shoma Anand is as usual, Raj Kiran is decent Asrani is good in the comedy Gulshan and Shakti are the villains, Kader Khan does his usual act
