The wacky and colourful costumes with larger than life sets and over th board drama. These were the main masaledaar elements to make a blockbuster movie in the 70's. And Nasir Hussain's hit flick Yaadon Ki Baaraat was no different.
The story revolves around the 'teen bichade hue bhaayi' (three separated brothers) Shankar (Dharmendra), Vijay (Vinay Arora) and Ratan (Tariq) who fall prey to the unfortunate attack on their parents. After the massacre they lose contact with each other. They grow up in entirely different circumstances wherein Shankar still hunts for the peopel who killed his parents, Vijay is adopted by a wealthy man and Ratan becomes a pop star. What follows is an emotional, romantic and action packed scenes that grip the audience to the screens.
Yaadon Ki Baarat is a head-to-toe Bollywood package that entertains the audience to the core. The powerpacked actions, the flowery costumes and the hard hitting dialogues directly impact the viewers.
Dharmendra as the vengeful elder brother delivers one of his best performances in the movie. He aptly fits into the character of the street guy, which reminds you of Veeru of Sholay. Vinay as the simple and the romantic hero to Zeenat Aman steals the heart of a million. His flirtatious eyes and naughty dialogues are delivered convincingly. Tariq as the pop star gets the least screen timing, but he delivers it beautifully. Neethu Singh is the glamour element in the movie.
The aspect of the movie that cannot be failed to mention or even forget is the melodious music by R D Burman. Songs like Chura Liya Hain Tumne and Lekar Hum Deewana Dil are still hot favourites of people. The voices of Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Rafi and Asha Bhosle perfectky fit into the songs of the movie.
For any person who loves the melodramatic and power packed action sequences with melodious music, Yaadon Ki Baaraat is not to be missed.
