Socially relevant theme but 70s treatment.
Sunil Dutt Saahab's last directorial venture tackled the then blazing issue of dowry deaths. It introduced Sheeba in lead role who falls dowry victim to Shakti Kapoor and his family and is burnt alive. Sunil Dutt playing her father, then plays the avenger. Film also starred Rekha and Kabir Bedi who had a parallel track to the main plot. Film was socially relevant for that time and was declared tax free in most states including Maharashtra. Dutt Saahab's direction and treatment was 70s style. The basic theme of the need to strengthen the dowry laws was pertinent for that time and now, we do have strict law in this regard. The film didnt do that well at the box office. Overall, Yeh Aag kab bujhegi is a decent watch though it feels dated in todays time. I caught it on YouTube during the Covid lockdown period.
