Trivia

In a 1996 interview with Rajiv Shukla, Shahrukh said that he asked for the director's phone number from Anupam Kher, called her and said he would be interested in the role of Immi. After discussing the script, both wanted to make the film together. However, Shahrukh requested that the film begins shooting in September of the following year (this meeting was in December of previous year). According to Shahrukh, she called around February and said she would not like to wait longer and will go ahead and make the movie with another actor. See more »

Arif Zakaria steals the show not just with his act as eunuch but also driving into the compelling psyche of how one goes while being in their shoes...

Arif Zakaria steals the show not just with his act as eunuch but also driving into the compelling psyche of how one goes while being in their shoes...

Very rare it happens that such films talks about their issue in a correct way without going melodramatic or cheesy and this one actually promises you on the former while making you thinking about the lives of eunuch and how it miserable it becomes over the years when they step in society and among the people who consider them as inconsiderable.

Talking about the film and other performances, where we have Kiron Kher, Tabu, Sayaji Shinde, Rita Gangul essaying important roles while also playing their roles with full powerhouse acting, we have a good film that looks better but gets bogged down with story not making up to the level the actors did their acting. Writing also looks better at points and at times, but like story never goes above the normal.Same with music and songs.

At last, it will be hard for you to get this film so on YT, there is this film so go and have the watch right now because it is one of the best made films in Indian cinema with Tamanna and Sadak being in same field.
