Mahant Chaturvedi did not approve of his daughter marrying outside of their caste to Gopi, and as such breaks off all relations with them. Years later, Gopi attempts to make amends by bringing his grown-up daughter, Sandhya, an accomplished dancer, to her grandfather. After witnessing her dance, Mahant approves of her, blesses her, and wants her to marry his ward, Brahmananda Chaturvedi, alias Nandu, who he has adopted years ago. The problem is that Sandhya is in love with a lower-caste youth by the Hari. Nevertheless, she does marry Nandu, only to find out that he prefers to go elsewhere at night, leaving her alone with her thoughts and of her love for Hari. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Brave Attempt...
17 January 2017 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

Jaag Utha Insaan Directed By K. Vishwanath is A Romantic / Social Drama. It is Remake Of Telugu Movie Saptapadhi By The Same Director. Only The Climax is Changed in Hindi Version. Script & Screenplay is Brilliant. Direction is Awesome To Good. Dialogues & Action is Fine. Editing is Bit Rough.

Sandhya(Sri Devi) A Brahmin (Highest Order in Caste System Of India) is A Dancer, Falls in Love With Hari (Mithun Chakraborty), A Harijan (Lowest Order in Caste Sytem Of India). She Visits Her Maternal Grandfather Who is A Staunch Hindu Priest. There, He Decides To Get Sandhya Married To His Adopted Grandson Nandu (Rakesh Roshan), Who is Also A Priest At The Temple. Hari, Citing The Apparent Caste Difference, Urges Sandhya To Marry Nandu.

Sandhya Marries Nandu, Later He Comes To Know About Sandhya & Hari Which Changes Life Of Nandu, Relatives & The Villagers At The End Of The Movie.

Acting Wise, Mithun & Sri Devi Both Did Well in Their Respective Characters. Rakesh Roshan Looks Brilliant With His Dialogues. J.V. Somayajulu, Deven Verma, Sujit Kumar & Master Chhotu Are Good in Supporting Role.

Music By Rajesh Roshan is Average. "Tere Zindagi Ke Rangini" By Kishore & Asha Bhosle is Better Track From The Movie.

Overall Well Made Social Movie With Love Story As A Backdrop. Must Watch For Romantic Movie Fans.
