Remake of Balachander's Tamil hit Varumayin Niram Sivappu, Kamal Haasan reprises his role as Raja, a graduate looking for work in capital, sharing a small home with two other unemployed youth. He falls in love with a struggling actress, whose life is likewise wretched. Fairly unrelenting grim view of urban unemployment, with the usual dose of Balachander moralizing. The Tamil version with Bharati poems was somewhat more interesting. An interesting study of the perception of government.

Raj Babbar was shocked the Hindi version flopped. He had seen the Telegu version and agreed to do the Hindi version. But the producer told him he was planning to sign Dasari Narayana Rao. This did not sit well with Babbar . He wanted the original director K.Balachander to direct the film. Babbar left the film. But when Kamal Hassan was approached he stated he would only do the remake if K.Balachander was retained. See more
