Abhimaan

Abhimaan

A weeper of a movie, this Hindi language film is loosely adapted from A Star is Born. There's a certain innocence about this film, as shown in the scenes when Subir pulls Uma towards him on the bed and the camera shifts to the wall above them. The episode in which Uma makes her debut on All-India radio, while her husband who's been undercut by growing fame and agent listen in separate locations, is poignant. Featuring Amitabh Bachchan as Subir, Jaya Bhaduri as Uma, and Asrani in a great turn as their agent Chandru.
