Storyline

Widower Mahendra Prasad lives a very wealthy lifestyle along with his daughter, Kiran, in a palatial house. He is very religious and superstitious and consults his astrologer, Pandit Din Dayal Shastri, on all major issues. When Kiran informs him that she and wealthy Randhir Mehra are in love with each other, he consults Din Dayal, who predicts that the alliance is unsuitable. Mahendra convinces Kiran to get married to wealthy Ravi Kapoor, which she does. On the day of the marriage, Randhir attempts to speak with Kiran, but is prevented, a scuffle ensues, police arrive, and Randhir ends up shooting a police inspector, as a result he is arrested, tried in court, and sentenced to two years in jail. Kiran gives birth to a baby boy, Sunny, who grows up and falls in love with Madhu Sodhi. When they approach her dad, Rajiv, for getting the two married, Rajiv initially refuses, but changes his mind when he sees Mahendra's photograph.

A great movie following Hindi Tradition
27 October 2014 | by nickmilicichSee all my reviews

Great movie and worth the watch. If you don't understand Janam Kundali you can read more about what it is at www.janamkundali.info It should help you understand the theme better.

The acting is typical of a Bollywood film and really sets the tone for the typical predictions of Janam Kundali and its meaning.

A great watch for the family and although it is almost 20 years old, it still manages to captivate and keep your attention throughout. I would highly recommend this to those who have not seen it and anybody interested in Hindi movies/themes and Janam Kundali.

Tariq Shah works wonders again by translating the great writings of Talat Rekhi in a way that Talat sees. The two seem to have a knack of complimenting each others styles in a way that produces films a great as this and their other works.
