A Well made Movie love it
22 March 2019 | by farazdianaSee all my reviews

Movie ahead of its time probably one of the finest and underrated movies of Shashi Kapoor. It is produced by his Company Filmvalas and directed by Shyam Benegal. All Characters in this movie have done justice to there roles background music is superb it doesn't make the make look tht old movie has a lot of twist it shows how important it is to compete and have competition. Raj Babbar doesn't have much role Anant nag and Rehka stills the show one of there serious roles Kulbhushan karbanda and Reema lagoo are Okay Ak Hangal was his usual Urmila play the young boy. Sushma seth was the same like all her movies. Amrish puri doesnt have much in the movie same for Om puri. Supriya Pathak first movie. over All I rate this movie 8.5 a good watch if you like a ram gopal varma kinda movies this is a must watch movie doesn't have songs only 1 (what's your problem)
