Arpan is a story of love, of sacrificing everything to save your lover's hone.Reena Roy's best film also one of the best of Jeetendra and Parveen Babi.one of the Raj Babber's more difficult and complex role,from a negative shade to a pathetic shade.music is superb by Laxmikant Pyarelal.the best being Lata Mangeshkar's "Pardes Ja Ke Pardesiya","Likhne Wale Ne Likh Dale....Asa Hud Turja Laye...." and Anwar's "Mohabbat Ab Tijarat Ban Gayi Hai".
Reena Roy and Jeetendra are engaged.he has to go to Europe for some business deal.meanwhile his sister gets pregnant.Reena Roy decides to marry her off to her boyfriend in absence of Jeetendra.Raj Babber who is her boss and wants to get her at all costs kidnaps the bridegroom.he puts a proposal before Reena Roy marry me and i will let him go .she to save her true love's hone marries her.she tells the sister never to tell her brother about it.Raj Babber mistreats her for he knows she doesn't loves him,and his friends admonish him for the way he treated his wife.
when Jeetendra returns he thinks she betrayed him and married raj babber for his money.his heart breaks and he gets really sick.doctor's advise him to take a holiday on some hill station.
there he meets parveen babi.he again falls in love.in the same hotel raj babber and Reena Roy comes to stay.raj babber's excesses of sex and booze have taken a toll on him ,he was dying of kidney failure.
rest of the story is an emotional journey where Jeetendra comes to know the truth which just overwhelms him.
an excellent film from J. Om Prakash filled with Indianness and Indian values that love is not about receiving but about giving and what true love really is a heart felt effort.video on shemaroo is of good quality.
