The film is a decent watch for those, who for some weird reason may crave for the 70's melodrama. It boasts of an archaic story and a predictable plot, with the actors spouting done to death dialogues throughout.
If you want to revisit that phase of Bollywood, where women were perpetually unhappy and had a 'majboori' for being that way, you can watch this one. Else, avoid.
Sara Loren looks good but is too wooden. Also, barring cinematography and music, other aspects of the film are way too mediocre and cliched for your liking. Sadly it's 2015 and this formulaic drama has nothing new to offer.
