Love transforms bad guy
11 June 2004 | by fantansSee all my reviews

Raja was the King of Kirana Bazar and the surrounding areas - His law was pay 'Hafta' and live peacefully. In case of defiance, Raja's muscled arms had enough strength to punish the culprit. On the other hand, there was Laxmi, a Tiffin Carrier girl, who not only defied Raja but condemned him publicly for squeezing the blood of poor and hard working people in the form of 'Hafta'. Raja couldn't do a bit against her - Because Raja was grateful to Laxmi's Dadu(grandpa), a cart-puller, who had sympathy for him before. It so happened - Dadu breathed his last while pulling the cart in scorching sun, and municipality squad demolished the 'Jhoopad Patti', where laxmi was living - making her homeless. In the night, when Laxmi was sleeping on Dadu's cart, Kallu, a local gunda, tried to molest her. Raja reached the spot in time, rescued Laxmi and forced her to live in his house.

Bastiwala branched Laxmi as Raja's keep. And Raja was ashamed of himself so much that he silently vowed to provide happiness to Laxmi by turning into a working man. The process of reciprocation of feeling started. Raja and Laxmi became the darlings of Bastiwalas. They proposed them to get married - And then came in Professor - for whom Laxmi was working as a maid servant once - with the proposal of marrying her. Raja faced the dilemma of giving Laxmi happiness...

Due to its age, the plot is simple, setting rather shoddy, and the makeup outdated, but both the leading actor and actress showed subtle depth with the development of characters. 3/10 for the script, 8/10 for the performance.
