Shashi Kapoor and Devan Verma all giving excellent performances and the amazing music

I remember this movie as a kid but on revisiting it as an adult I came to appreciate it even more. A stunning cast of actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Badhuri, Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Shashi Kapoor and Devan Verma all giving excellent performances and the amazing music, dialogue and stunning cinematography, this is an epic drama of scale, very moving, and romantic, with a feel-good ending. If you're a fan of Indian cinema, this is a must see movie.

Bad performances, bad story. Standard "sahara" needing, helpless woman male saviour Bollywood fare. Unwatchable.

The portrayal of a true love story, or was it, Between Amitabh, Jaya and Rekha.

A gripping romantic and emotional film that was ahead of its time, like Kabhi Kabhie was in 1975. This was the last pairing of Amitabh and Rekha, for reasons not truthfully known but it was sad to see such a great rapport come to an end. Supporting cast like Shashi Kapoor and Sanjeev Kumar were a bonus but full credit goes to Jaya Bachchan for agreeing to come back into films and that to such a film that was a reflection of reality. Another enjoyable Bollywood Flick from Yash Chopra. The songs were beautifully written, composed and sung. Overall a personal favourite of mine and also to mention, This was when Amitabh was at the top, Smart and extremely handsome.

All time classic
With the undertones of the real-life affairs of the actors brimming away under the surface and some wonderful characters, this film rates as one of Bollywood's all-time bests.
Amitabh turns in a great performance on top, and often despite his legendary charisma. He and Rekha are the obvious stars, but every character in this film is utterly believable. Marriage on the rocks, obligation, true love - good old Indian melodrama. But brilliantly done.
Thank you Mrs. Bachchan for your bravery in making this film. It's only work from the heart that can be as good as this.

Great Movie
I believe that this movie is one of its kind when it comes to Romantic Genre in Hindi Cinema. A kind of taboo including a bit of loving someone else and marrying someone else. This movie was a groundbreaking and a topic never touched before in Bollywood. Amitabh and Rekha perform at their very best. If you are really after a good movie than watch this...
