| Perfect case of Ovarcasting and dishonest filmmaking
While the film is tolerable and not that bad, it could have been a good film, but is pulled down by lack of honesty in storytelling. while the main plot revolves around one female lead, they have surrounded the film by plethora of actors, who play little, if any role in the proceedings. the film boast of as many as 6 main actors namely- rishi kapoor, mandakini, padmini kolhapure, mithun chakravorty, shatrughn sinha and anita raj, barring padmini, and maybe perhaps mithun, none of the character are useful for the story, and it would have made absolutely no difference t the film, if these actors were not in the film. on the contrary the movie would have been crisper, with a definite screenplay and avoid of useless song and dance sequences, which are anyways poor and thus serves as a distraction.

acting wise, the film belongs to padmini kolhapure, not only because the story revolves around her character, but because she excels in dramatic sequences. she manages to shine throughout the film and is easily the best thing in the film. mithun chakravorty acts well in the only other important role. rishi kapoor is so-so, mandakini, shatrughn sinha and anita raj are wasted in inconsequential roles.

watch it for padmini and a somewhat promising plot marred by uneven screenplay and execution and unnecessary characters.
