This movie is a remake of an old Hindi Hit and Rajesh Khanna is playing the lead role.The movie is a tear jerker and is a good social drama.The movie has average music of Bappi Lahiri- but the supportive cast fails in delivering to the standards of Super Star Rajesh Khanna.Chunky Pande, Neelam and Dipika do not come close to the performance of Rajesh Khanna and seem a miscast.The direction and editing of the movie is okay, story is good and Rajesh Khanna’s performance is excellent.However, it fails to get the support from the other cast members who do not look convincing at all. It is a must see for Rajesh Khanna fans and for people who like to see good family drama.It is a must for Rajesh Khanna fans as he is superb in his role.
