Storyline

Shanti Swarup is a businessman and lives a wealthy lifestyle with his three sons, Ram, Shyam, and Sunder; his wife, Parvati; widowed sister, Devki; an unmarried daughter, Geeta; and a devoted servant named Kanhaiya. Parvati would like Sunder to get married to a former rich man's daughter, Laxmi, but Sunder chooses to marry a maid-servant, Rachna, and as a result Laxmi gets married to Kanhaiya. Shanti has arranged for Geeta to marry his friend, Lala Karamchand's son, Ramesh. Financial losses occur, Shanti loses all his wealth, his sons, Ram and Shyam, refuse to assist him in any way, & Karamchand cancels the wedding. Disheartened, depressed and unable to face the world, he passes away. Now their palatial home is to be auctioned by a greedy Karamchand, a devastated Parvati is on her deathbed as she cannot think of living elsewhere, and it is only a miracle that can save this wretched family.

An excellent movie
5 June 2005 | by yalgharSee all my reviews

This is an excellent movie showing the harsh realities of life.The movie on the whole belongs to Ashok Kumar,who gives an excellent performance in the role of a father whose children leave him when hard time comes.Sunil Dutt gives a bravo performance in the role of an adopted son who stands by his father when his real children leave him.This really shows his versatility.Nutan also gives a good performance in the role of Sunil Dutt's wife.However the reason why it cannot be given 10 is its music,which is not appealing at all.As far as storyline and direction is concerned,one cannot find any flaw in the movie.
