Yaadon Ki Baarat is that grand drama every Bollywood director wants to make.
Time cannot dull the appeal of this Bollywood classic. More than three decades after its release, Yaadon Ki Baaarat is that rare Bollywood film that still resonates very well with viewers.
A fast-paced movie with a tight script, great songs and fine acting by the lead players, Yaadon Ki Baaraat was a big hit with the audience.
More than anything else, what adds to the extraordinary appeal of Yaadon Ki Baraat is the excellent music by R.D.Burman. Virtually, every song in the film is a treat for the ears. Chura Liya Hai, Lekhar Hum Deewana Dil, O Mera Soni and the title song Yaadon Ki Baraat are all sheer magic. Neetu Singh looks chubby and sweet in Lekhar Hum Deewana Dil while Zeenat Aman is a feast for the eyes in Chura Liya Hai and O Mera Soni.
Three brothers Shankar (Dharmendra), Ratan (Tariq) and Vijay (Vijay Arora) are separated in their childhood after their parents are murdered because their father witnessed a crime committed by Shakal (Ajit).
Shankar grows up as a petty criminal, Ratan becomes a singer at a hotel while Vijay, who is taken in by a kind hearted manager of a large household, becomes a ladies man.
How the brothers are finally united and avenge the death of their parents accounts for the rest of the film.
The final fight scene on the make-shift runway was downright ridiculous with the three brothers taking on virtually an army of bad guys and still coming out on top.
While Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman and Neetu Singh went on to become big Bollywood stars, Vijay Arora and Tariq never hit the big time. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
