Another Dharti Ka Lal (Son of Soil) Adventure of Jeetendra
18 March 2004 | by ArvindVyasSee all my reviews


As usual Jeetendra is a village boy studying in city. In nights sometimes drive taxi of his roommate. During one such nights he meets Leena Chandavarkar who is daughter of millionaire Madan Puri. Who falls is love with him and marries him.

However, this is also story of a mother Durga Khote who has two sons (Jeetendra is one of them), but still is mistreated. After marriage Jeetendra brings Leena to village but she can't just live in village. So, mother asks son Jeetendra to live with the in-laws.

Will the mother ever have her sons back to her? Will the rich girl Leena understand value of family ties? That's the story. Asrani plays a foreign returned suitor for Leena Chandravakar.

DIRECTION The director has chosen to portray this serious story with a lot of comic touch and makes this a humorous movie. The cast just delivers what the movie demands.

MUSIC The songs in the movie are good and they also maintain the touch of humor the director wanted. The songs "Kabhi Khole Na Tizori Ka Taala Haan mera sasura bara paise wala..." and "Yeh hai mera premi mujhko kare salaam, main hoon iski begum yeh hai mera ghulam..." are samples.

My rating is 8/10 to this movie.
