She decides to travel to Kashmir and take possession of a piece of her land that is being occupied by Suraj Arora. Her Nanny tells her she was brought up by the Arora family until her dad, Karan Singh, became wealthy and broke off all relations with them. Once in Kashmir, all differences are forgotten and both Suraj and Arti fall in love with each other. Arti's life will soon change after she finds out that Anuradha, too, has fallen in love with Suraj, and this discovery will not only create complications and competitiveness between the two women, but also change everyone's lives forever.

Generally good but not great
15 June 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is quite an ordinary Hindi film of the 1980s. Visually beautiful, emotional, tear-jerking, with good songs.

The story revolves around Arti (Raakhee) and Anu (Rati), two good friends, the latter being the former's secretary. Both fall for the same man (Shashi Kapoor), and that's how the story follows this conflict.

The highlights of the film are the two leading ladies who perform convincingly. This gives the film a new charm not warranted by the ordinary, flawed script. Raakhee plays a 30 plus woman who is widely known to be difficult to deal with, and this is realised when she forms her first relationship with the first man in her life. Her character is jealous, manipulative, domineering and even obsessed, and the actress displays all these features quite well. Rati's role is that of a beautiful, gentle, supportive and sacrificing woman, who is both vulnerable and strong. She plays her character effectively. Shashi Kapoor performs well as always, but disappears in a role that is not demanding nor particularly pivotal.

All in all, a nice, warm film with a tragic ending. Watch in your free-time when you feel bored and somewhat nostalgic for an old classic Hindi film.
