Storyline

Veeru Singh and Rajeshwar Singh are sworn enemies, their clans and villagers have taken sides in a blood feud. Guns, and goons galore in both their fiefdoms. Military grade training for their cadres. How did all this come to pass when they were inseparable as friends while they were children. Their blood feud extends to their children. When one of their sons, Kunal gets a girl from the opposite camp pregnant, and she is raped and killed by someone from the other side, tensions escalate. Will the grandchildren carry the torch of hatred. Vasu and Radha are the grandchildren, whose association kindles another fire from yesteryear. Who manipulated the estrangement of dear friends and why? Is there a possibility of reconciliation between Veeru and Rajeshwar? Who wins, who loses is the theme of the film. Glueing the plot together is a childhood song that the duo would sing, and now the grandchildren have learned to sing. Written by MG Gopalan

Saudagar(1991)
11 February 2008 | by iftikharkhokherSee all my reviews

Riding on their past reputations the two Kumar giants nullified what could have been an excellent film.The story is well contrived like most rip-offs of Romeo and Juilet.The script and photography is above average.The casting is the weak link.The director would have been better advised to cast younger actors for the roles of the young Veeru and Raju instead of two old men who do more justice as grandfathers later in the film.Manisha and Vivek resemble each other too much to be plausible as lovers!Raaj Kumar's appalling physical state berefts him of his usual commanding performance though his speech is great as ever.Dilip Kumar excels but the the thunder is stolen by one Amrish Puri!A very average film most suitable for hard core Kumar fans but overall nothing new.I always felt that after Gunga Jumna Dilip Kumar didn't do justice to his talents due to his youth fixation Saudagar is another case in point.
