    How did they got these three to act together in this movie.

    Nice movie, good acting.

    Did anyone else think the ending seem kind of tacked on? I mean I get the idea that he felt obligated to go back to his wife, but did they have to romp around in flowers and then have "LOVE IS FAITH" emblazoned across the screen? I felt like it might have been catering to the audience a little bit, reflecting what they would like to think Amitabh’s motivations were for staying married to Jaya (who knows what they really were–could be, of course). Plus faithlessness in Indian culture isn’t one to really be rewarded. I just thought it was a little jarring to suddenly tout this one kind of love way over the other, more passionate kind, when the whole movie was about how powerful the latter was. I guess the printed message across the screen isn’t really unusual for Yash Chopra films though.

    Also, what happened to poor Rekha? I guess it’s implied that her marriage works out much the same way, but I felt kind of sad that they just ditched her at the end.

    I couldn’t tell from the ending of the film if Sobha’s collapse at the site of the air crash was her losing the baby or just fainting. It would have been good if they’d made this clearer, whether he was going back to her because she was having his baby or DESPITE the fact that she now wasn’t. Anyone know for sure?

    Does anyone know if Amitabh and Rekha were still having an affair when they filmed this movie? I have the foggy idea that they had already broken up, but I’m not sure. If so I can imagine that filming the movie must have been painful and kind of masochistic, but also maybe cathartic in a brutal sort of way, or perhaps a resigned one.

    I thought the scene where Jaya tells Rekha she’ll never leave Amit was kind of chilling in the sense that that conversation apparently took place in real life as well…crazy.

    KANK is similar to this in many ways.

    it didnt flop but it isnt considered as a classic

    maybe it will be in 20 years time
