A must watch !
One of finest Anil Kapoor movie after his debut movie Woh Saat Din. A simpleton romantic and social drama which defines a meaningful cinema. Starring Anil Kapoor, Amrita Singh along with Rakhi, Saaheb falls into Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of movie genre. Highlighting family and social values over personal goals and achievements, Saheb is pretty good lesson to todays GenX.
Cast: Rakhee Gulzar, Anil Kapoor, Amrita Singh
