Worth watching
23 July 2006 | by humezaaraSee all my reviews

Great Pair of Sridevi and Jeetu. Has everything that a masala movie should have and also its remake of a Tamil film. It's movie about an Ramu who is raised throw hardships by his mother and he returns to village as a engineer. Jeetendra is playing the character of engineer babu, Ravi, and Waheeda is playing the role of his mother. Sridevi playing the Rekha daughter a Sher Singh played by Amjad Khan. This movies great to watch and contains lots of comedy and wonderful music. The Naino Main Sapna , Sapno main sajna, sajna pe dil aagya, is from this film. The music is foot taping and dances are great. One more thing this is the movie of Sridevi's early years in Hindi movies and the voice dobbed on her is not her voice but dances are just super. Her character is small character but as a leading lady opposite Jeetu whom she worked with in many great films, but also as a kid she played his sister in 73. Jeetu at his best dances but his acting good sometime you hear him that he lecturing somebody or in college. Maybe his acting in dialog delivery had same always but i think its seems little weird. Amjad Khan is at his best and Kader Khan is giving the best performance I ever seen. Shoma looks great in village gal. Arun Govl is mute and he is giving great performance. Asarni gives average performance but great direction of the director. Lovely locations, and its worth watching. The locations are similar in other Padmalya films also but lovely locations and great art direction set coordination. It's great film that a family can enjoy. Beautiful costumes, and great cinematography. To find what the movie is about everyone should see it.
