Simple, yet Involving
4 February 2006 | by OldisgolDSee all my reviews

J Om Parkash, the director of this movie also has another favourite of mine "Apnapan" to his credit. Both the films do not involve any novel theme or even treatment. It is just his knack of getting the basic things right and treating the plot in a homely manner that makes these movies precious to me.

"Akhir Kyoon" boasts the presence of Sumita Patil, undoubtedly a performer par excellence in Indian cinema. She is in her mettle in this simple tale of a woman's woes. The plot and treatment do go somewhat stereotypical in the portion as to what happens to her after being driven out of home by her adulterous husband, and her resolve to face the world in the song "Shakti ka naam naari hae" yet otherwise the treatment is natural, simple, and truthful.

All in all a movie worth spending 3 hours with.
