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.

Kamal Hassan regretted doing the film in Hindi. He felt the north audience wanted to see Kamal in a nice love story after Ek Dujhe Ke Liye and Sanam Tere Kasam. Instead he made a different film that was accepted by the Tamil audience because they had already saw Kamal in a 100 Tamil films. See more
