This film is about a young working couple, who strive to build a home for themselves in the city of Bombay, so that they can get married. Both come from lower-middle class families and both aspire to a better future. Unfortunately, they develop different views on how to proceed, after a major setback shakes their confidence, especially in the case of the young man. Deeply involving drama does not take the easy way out. Written by ajmal hussain <ajji@nightmail.com>

Convoluted and Cliched
18 April 2020 | by Jini-BSee all my reviews

Amol Palekar has not disappointed me so far and so I thought this was going to be entertaining and fun. However, this was not as enjoyable as I was expecting it to be. The story is immensely complicated even when it did not need to be. Moreover, most of the characters were unlikable by the end of the tale. I enjoyed Amol Palekar's acting, as usual, but Zarina Wahab's character was very selfish and confused, and I really thought the writing needed to be improved. The premise itself was interesting but it was not used as effectively. Could have been quite impactful, talking about the impossible housing situation in big cities, but this left much to be desired. There was a lot of melodrama near the end, and Shriram Lagoo's character was extremely unlikable. I did not enjoy this at all.
