For starters, this film proves what a fine story-teller Amol Palekar is. He drops his garb of a easy lovable person next door and dons the role of a selfish lover (as Large B in Silsila) and attempts to hack his fate. What follows next is the turmoil of human mind. How far should a person go living with a guilt? And is life about cutting losses and opting for a lesser sin?Vinod Mehra has a minuscule role, but drives home very valid points home.Shreeram Lagoo is at his usual best.Deepti Naval steals the show, though the role has shades of Smita Patil of Arth.Devika Mukherjee barely leaves a mark.Amol Palekar, as an actor and director - hats off!!Songs of Bhimsen Joshi are noteworthy.If you have to watch this movie, then watch it for a storyline teller who is at his budding stage.Bottomline:: We are all blessed with freewill.
hi, Despite being a regular IMDb visitor this is now my first post.I have watched so many really nice films over the last 2 years that commenting on this one is a tiny intriguing.but more than that i was so taken aback that i had to do something to vent my amusement and elation so i rushed to the website and actually i m writing a review.More than a review it is just an experience oozing out to the web page. Although i have grown up watching all type of Hindi cinema i am not such a large fanatic of it(now that i have watched cinema from all round the world)as far as storyline driven films are concerned.More than stories generally our films are all about stars and actually a days a several typecast characters.Instances of films purely driven by a powerful storyline are not umpteen to tell the least. Well after watching ankahee today i can safely add it to the list of nice storyline backed cinema. such a lovely script,with a quite an out of the league music,which is so unconventional but complements the movie superbly are what create this film a radical experience.Watch it to trust it and expect no fireworks because there are not any.The film just flows without much ado but but leaves you spellbound. And i had never heard of the name is such a pity and there are only 10 votes for the movie vindicates the fact that this jewel is still lying somewhere undiscovered by movie-buffs.So go-out today and bag a copy.
This film attempts to create a very commendable point, but fails miserably. The entire storyline seems forced, and the direction is really poor. Like most Bollywood films, its predictable, but the end is downright stupid. There really are better methods to create your point. The storyline is utterly senseless. I like Amol Palekar a lot, but this is really not even a watchable film. Skip it if you dislike unnecessary melodrama and a storyline so committed to making its point, it fails to create any semblance of sense.Deepti Naval steals the show. Amol Palekar is just tiresome to look at. Devika Mukherjee could have had more of a role, she shines in whatever tiny role she has. The cast is nice overall, except for the actor who plays Indu's (Deepti Naval) father. The melody is great, and purely classical. This film should have been a LOT better if they had worked a bit more on the story. And a lighter premise than death would have made method more sense to prove the point. This morbid premise just makes the film melodramatic and implausible and also makes a mockery of death.
