A very nonsensical kind of movie
5 November 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Saawan Kumar Tak's Saajan Bina Suhagan is a typical sort of melodrama. The plot is hardly convincing and the proceedings rarely ring true. This is a stale tale of a mother's 'sacrifice'. Nutan plays Asha Chopra, a middle-aged mother of three. Three daughters they are, the eldest is a typical action star, the second is a good girl, and the third is a cute kid who has some sort of heart disease. Asha's husband is not in town, and when he unexpectedly dies, she keeps it in secret as such sudden news may kill her youngest daughter, who loves her dad the most. Then we also get the usual drunkard who blackmails Asha and threatens to reveal her secret. Yeh, this movie is a fairytale of sorts, which has little to do with reality, and has little to offer to its audience. Some of its sequences are hilarious, unintentionally of course, as we see the elder daughter fighting with guys in true Hindi film style. Nutan is an accomplished actor and rarely did she do wrong with her acting, but how much can even a great thespian like her ultimately do with such a silly character? She is good within the context of the film, but is overall let down by the script, which never allows her to utilise her true talent, and sadly so. The movie belongs to her though, and the supporting actors, too, struggle with thin characters which do not compliment them in any way. Some of the songs are nice but nothing great. Saajan Bina Suhagan is a most ordinary and boring melodrama which has few, if any, redeeming qualities, though lovers of typical Hindi weepies may enjoy it.
