Bollywood Bs for the week

So we stopped over at Taj Stores to return the DVD of Warrant that we had rented last week. Of course, I still have to work out a review of the film {and it's a repeat viewing for me, although the last one was VHS}. I chose two for the following week: Dev Anand's latest squib, Censor {review on} and Trimurti, a prime example of the never-heard-of-it genre, this is a Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani starrer with music by R. D. Burman (there, now you know why I picked this one off the shelf). Here's the synopsis of the film verbatim (which means all outrageous typos intact) followed by the scene index (which merits an award in itself).

DVD Details: Eros Entertainment/B4U DVD-E 119 Running Time: 140 Minutes/Color

Kiron Productions TRIMURTI

Produced and Directed by Rajendra Bhatia

Music R. D. Burman

Starring Sanjay, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, I. S. Johar

Happines is relative. Money certainly can't buy it. So what is happiness? "TRIMURTI" presents a solution to this mystery in the traditional Indian way.

It is the story of a mother, who without money tries to give happiness to her sons, just as Mother INdia manages to keep her sons happy even though she herself is stepped in poverty. This then is the theme of "TRIMURTI".

Vijay, Nandu and Bhola, the three brothers who are the "TRIMURTI" of the picture, try to find contentment in life by being footless and free. The soaring unemployment has compelled them to ask society whether it owes them a living, and add to their problems, they fall in love with the daughters of rich men.

But wealth has its own wicked ways of becoming a barrier to happiness, and this is what happens. One of the three brothers happens to be the long lost son of the rich man whose daughter is in love with the eldest daughter.

Events take interesting twist again! The father of the other two girls is a rich man with a secret, and he wants the long lost boy to marry one of his daughters. In the vast jumble the poor mother holds the thread of ethics together and tries her hand at unravelling the problems that face all of them.

Matters soon come to a head as the voice of the poor is raised in anguish against the powerful language of money. But who cares?
