When Durga, his wife gives birth to twins, he not only repudiates the children but discards his wife in a public way. One of the twins is stolen by Vikram's arch rival and is brought up by a petty purveyor of bootleg liquor. Kishan, the other twin is raised by Durga to become a responsible law enforcer. A clash of the twins is inevitable since Amit lives a life of petty crime. The plot thickens when the twins fall in love with sisters. One of the sisters is a tawaif - a danseuse who entertains men. Suhag, is a fast paced action story where the underworld, the law enforcers, justice and society come together in a compelling story of intrigue, deceit, loyalty and integrity. Social values of the time - love and sacrifice for a sibling, parent, friend is thematically blended into the story. Will the separated twins meet? How will Vikram Singh react when he finds himself on opposite sides of the law ... Written by MG Gopalan

Excellent, Fantastic and Superb
30 September 2008 | by liakot_aSee all my reviews

Suhaag is a fantastic film from Manmohan Desai that entertains big time. He has made great films like Amar Akhbar Anthony, Naseeb, Mard, Coolie and other classics. Suhaag has an amazing beginning where the 2 baby's get separated in a unfortunate way. One gets raised by his mum in poverty while the other gets raised the hard way in the slums. Amitabh delivers a super performance yet again and again. Shashi Kapoor is lovable as Amitabhs co star in all his movies. Nirupa Roy is probably the best on screen mother I've ever seen. Amjad Khan and Kader Khan are perfect fine actors of the past and play their parts great. This is a movie that has it all action, comedy, romance, adventure a true Indian masala.
