A sweet but lengthy movie
6 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A sweet but lengthy movie of a happily married couple whose over caring love for each other combined with their over smartness to make haywire conclusions about other's conversation on phone, leads to a set of comic but serious situations and finally a soft and happy ending.

Bhagawant Kumar(Amol Palekar),41 yrs suffers from a mania of cardiac disorder. He over hears a conversation of his family doctor and concludes that he is suffering from Angina Pectoris.Worrying about his short span of life,he starts feeling insecured about his caring wife Priya(Ranjeeta) after his death and decides to get her married to a wealthy person.Priya being unaware of her husband's state of mind starts thinking his activities dubious.Situation gets even more comic(or tragic) with coming of Achint(Dilip Kulkarni),Priya's college friend.Finally things blows out when Venkat(Ashok Saraf),Bhagwant's advocate friend get involved in a brawl with Achint in front of Bhagwant.It is interesting to watch how embarrassed Bhagwant,shocked Priya and humiliated Achint, take next steps and the well tailored plot gets unfolded.
