| A charming love story
Betaab is a very entertaining film. It is a love story involving a young poor, simple, humorous and romantic guy called Sunny and a spoilt, rich girl called Roma. They quite coincidentally were childhood friends, and their parents were close friends until Sunny's dad went bankrupt and everything changed. It is portrayed beautifully and simply. Sunny is a hard-working guy who owns a farm-house in a small rural town with his mother. Roma lives in a big mansion, and when her father buys an estate which is near Sunny's farm, she enthusiastically goes to visit it. That's how they meet, and that's how begins their "hate-to-love" romance. The story later takes more shape as Roma's father disapproves of their relationship. Betaab is benefited from breathtaking locations and extraordinary, timeless songs composed by R.D Burman. Songs like "Jab Hum Jawan Hoge", "Apne Dil Se Badi" and "Badal Yun" are unforgettable. Where acting goes, Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh perform brilliantly in their debut roles, and Shammi Kapoor and Nirupa Roy provide great support. The film has comedy, drama and action, and many sequences in it were enjoyable and quite fun to watch while there were also several touching and exciting moments. I did not like everything about this film, but I mainly loved it for its simplicity, for the well-written characters and for portraying the beauty of the light and rural India, which was authentically done thanks to the sets and efficiently aided by all the different animals, including Sunny's livestock and particularly his cute pet dog. This is a heartwarming film and according to me one of the better Hindi love stories of the 1980s.
