Storyline

A rich and wealthy couple, Shankarlal and Parvati (Sanjeev Kumar & Raakhee) are appalled at the problems of the world, especially in households, so they decide to try and make things right - one household at a time. They first go the household of alcoholic Rajesh (Rakesh Roshan); his domineering mom (Lalita Pawar); and uneducated wife, Veena (Deepti Naval). Their second task takes them to the household of Vishwanath Gupta(A.K. Hangal); his son, Madhu (Amol Palekar) who has taken to drinking; and his attractive, outgoing, and wealthy wife, Aruna (Sarika). The couple go to work on these families to turn them around and improve and better their relations with each other. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Beautiful Movie
31 March 2014 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

Let us take it as a story. What I did not find logical is the way Shankarlal and Parvati Devi enters into couples' lives without any hitch. Otherwise, it's a very good attempt and a beautiful movie. Despite being a south movie, the director managed to keep it simple, without much of melodrama. Sanjeev Kumar is too good with his cool and mild facial expressions and dialogue delivery. The next best thing is Amol Palekar, who has done a remarkable job. Dipti Naval, Sarika, Rakesh Roshan fits in and performs very well. Others have supported aptly. Rajesh Roshan's music needs a mention; 1) O Ri Hawa Dheere Se Chal, 2) Sabke Aage Humko Nachaye, 3) Ek Nasihat Meri Yaro Suno and 4) Main Tera Husband Tu Meri Wife. Good movie, certainly deserves a watch.
