Yet another good performance from the indefatigable Amitabh Bachchan - the man has had such high standards over the decades and has generally kept up to them. This very moral tale was apparently inspired by Caspar but seems to me to owe slightly more (in spirit) to The Ghost And Mrs. Muir (Hollywood, 1947).
A family move into a house haunted by friendly old ghost Amitabh, who strikes up a warm and honest relationship with their son Aman. There's plenty of genuine family entertainment with a few nice songs and it starts out very well but the film eventually gets bogged down in vapid sentimentality, albeit always with a high moral tone. Avuncular Amitabh is the only reason to stay to the end, to see him go through every conceivable emotion, although one of my favourite pieces was Samay Ka Pahiya sung at the climax. I felt it when he fell all the way down the stairs even if he didn't! SRK had a minor part, but as with the main players was not well-used - only chubby Aman shone in his special relationship with the ghost. And some nice photography with faultless production.
So, fairly good but not particularly memorable - a pleasant way to fill a couple of hours.
