Trivia

In the days before Biwi Ho To Aisi Salim Khan use to be very angry at Salman. Salim thought was a grown man who was good for nothing with out a job. This is when K Shashilal Nair told Salman that he should tell other directors he is working with K . Shashilal Nair. This was done so Salman could get some work. Salman finally signed J.K. Bihari's film. But soon after Bihari went complaining to Nair about Salman's behavior. He found Salman arrogant and very immature with no respect. This is when Shashi Lal Nair went to Salim Khan and explained the situation. Salim was able to talk sense into Salman. See more »

Best of the 80s
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

In what was quite possibly the worst decade for movies in Hindi cinema - this is a hidden gem. Not only does it tackle the issue of mother-in-law vs daughter-in-law it is also the story of forgiveness and female empowerment. The stars of the show are Bindu who is spectacular in one of the best "iron lady" roles ever - and of course Rekha who was spellbinding and equally charming playing the relentless Shalu. The music is a weak point, although the pre-climax song "Saasu ji tune merit radar na jani" has become a cult classic. Kader Khan is at his best as subservient husband. Farukh Sheikh also restrained does well. Salman Khan in his debut is one-dimensional but saved by his good-looks. Surprisingly Rekha was not nominated for her role, although she did win that year for Khoon Bhari Maang. Watch it for the electrifying chemistry of Rekha and Bindu - and the climax which makes the film special.
