social issues disguised in a romance
Yash Chapra's DHARAMPUTRA is surprisingly good, particularly in it's first half. The atmosphere of an upper-class Muslim home is captured very well, and the performances of Mala Sinha and Nirupa as young mothers of different faiths are good. While Shashi Kapoor as the illegitimate Muslim son adopted into the Hindu family is okay, it's also fascinating to see Rajindra Kumar in a minor role as and even more fanatic Hindu. There's little suspense in the story (the only question really is if Shashi will live or die after he finds out he was born a Muslim) but the first half and the message of communal harmony are handled quite well. It's certainly a Yash Chopra film --social issues disguised in a romance, and still effective today.
