Film for Kaka's fans
Sohanlal Kanwar had directed Rajesh in his earlier hit "Paapi Pet Ka Sawaal Hai". So, expectations were high when they got together for Awara Baap. But the film did not live upto the expectations & hence flopped.
The story line is slightly long & confusing to the ordinary viewer. Also, it is close to 3 hours & tends to drag at places. It is to the credit of Rajesh Khanna that even though he is paired with a much younger heroine like Meenakshi Seshadri, he performs his role with elan. He looks stylish & his costumes are very good.
Meenakshi in a double role makes the most of her opportunity. She even has a lip lock with kaka which was very bold at that time. Madhuri Dixit appears in a very small role.
Rajan Sippy has done well. It is not easy to match steps with a giant performer like Kaka but he manages to hang on.
Music by RD is good. If only the editing & direction had been better, this would have been a box office hit.
