Excellent movie
25 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The great Rishi Kapoor and Hema Malini star in this excellent movie. A must watch, brilliant performances and a great story. The highlights: Great performance by Rishi and Hema Great Story. Great Writer Great Direction. Punjabi Background. The end has a lot of message about women's rights. I watched it as it was written by Bedi and starred a great cast. A must watch. The story starts with the background of elder brother kulbhushan beating up Hema Malini all the time and the younger brother rishi trying to save her bhabhi. One day the elder brother gets killed and hell breaks loose. Rishi has to marry her bhabhi and sacrifice his own love Poonam. He does not accept her as his wife until the love and sacrifice of Hema convinces her one day and he conjugates his marriage.
