Directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee
This hit launched a wave of '70s Indian melodramas
in which the hero endures a terminal illness throughout the length of the
film. Rajesh Khanna stars as a man battling terminal intestinal cancer who
inspires others with his actions, as he determines to enjoy his remaining
days as much as possible, despite his physical pain. Also stars Amitabh
Bachchan. Music by Salil Choudhury also contributed to the film's success.
Hindi with English subtitles. 122 minutes.
