Good film
18 March 2010 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Yash Chopra made several good films in 70's, 80's till early 90's IMO

After the riveting DEEWAAR(1975) he returned with Bachchan and Shashi which was their perhaps 3rd film together after blockbusters like ROTI KAPDA AUR MAKAAN(1974) and DEEWAAR

The film starts off well and slowly transforms into a mature love story with lot of complications

The story slowly moves ahead 20 yrs and the story gets more complicated but it's brilliantly handled

Yash Chopra handles the film very well, he excels in handling relationships Music is good

Amiabh handles his part like a pro, in a role that sheds his angry young man image he does a great job Raakhee is good too Shashi too does a good job Waheeda excels Rishi Kapoor is delightful, Neetu too does a good job Balraj Sahni, Simi Garewal lend adeqaute support
