Storyline

Raj Malhotra and wife Pooja have four sons. The sons have settled down professionally and are quite independent. However, when Raj Malhotra retires, none of his children want to be burdened with the responsibility of taking care of their parents. Strangely, it is the adopted son who proves to be the most kind hearted of them all. Salman's girlfriend eventually marries him. The question is, will Raj and Pooja's sons learn the folly of their ways and turn over a new leaf? Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

baghban-makes us to introspect--a must watch movie
18 December 2012 | by venkatb83See all my reviews

SOME 2 YRS BACK I PURCHASED DVD WITH 3MOVIES IN IT. BAGHBAN ONE IN THAT..

LOOKING AT DVD POSTER I FELT ITS MAMOOLI AS USUAL FAMILY DRAMA..! but believe me after watching n while watching i couldn't control tears rolling down cheeks... it made me very emotional n to introspect..although i didn't hurt parents till moment..

story -screenplay-music(AMITAABH JI sung some songs)-acting-camera(near zoom capture of facial expressions of AMITAABH JI n HEMA MAALINI .

AMITAABH JI and HEMA MAALINI well suited for leading characters..

today its perfect time to watch it and correct our mistakes if any- many..

after watching it i couldn't come out of effect it made on me...

this one is remade in KANNADA AS 'EE BANDHANA' with DR'VISHNUVARDHAN N JATYA PRADHA ,its commercial flop in Kannada but makes same effect as Hindi did...

AMITAABH JI N HEMA MAALINI make a perfect on screen couple..

go n watch it... i give whole 10/10 for it.. highly deserves...more...

its time to correct faults...better now than late...
