Truly a classic
26 May 2014 | by sanjayppcSee all my reviews

Safar will always be remembered as a classic in Hindi cinema. It features superstar Rajesh khanna with sharmila & feroze khan. Rajesh Khanna once again plays a cancer patient with conviction. IS Johar provides the humour & sharmila has an author backed role.

This must be one of the few films where feroze khan gets a chance to act & he does a neat job.

Music was supposed to be composed by RD, an RK favourite but he had some problems with kaka at that time & hence Laxmikant Pyarelal were roped in. Critics who say that music in kaka's films became hits only because of the kaka-pancham combo, should hear the songs in this film.

The screenplay could have been a bit tighter but overall, it touches your heart. Rajesh Khanna looks tremendously handsome & his performance is heart warming.

Truly a film for lovers of good cinema & as for kaka's fans, they will surely rank this film among their hero's top 10.
