Heartwrenching story of maternal separation...

Hathon Ke Lakeeren tells the story of the anguish & despair felt by a woman separated from the child she brought up when the biological parents turn up on her doorstep demanding their child back. The child's real parents having no idea of the bond that has formed between mother & son that cannot easily be broken & forgotten about. Try as they may to convince the child that he is better off with them i.e. buying hundreds of toys & presents can find no substitute for the heartache that the child feels for his mother. The mother being his real mother or not. This is the woman who raised him since he was a baby, the infant crying out for attention clutches onto her fingers when she goes to comfort him with his real mother nowhere in sight. The mother losing her husband & without any family has only the child to live for is left empty without the love & adoration the child gives to her by just being there. This is told by the powerful ending that the film projects.

All in all a thoroughly believable story which is effectively portrayed by the cast. The film was also one the final films that Sanjeev Kumar made before his passing leaves a lasting tribute to the legacy left by an actor who made a substantial contribution to the Indian film industry with films such as Sholay, Anamika, Aandhi, Seeta Aur Geeta etc...
