Perfect display of pure serious acting by Utpal Dutt - One of The Masters of Comedy
29 July 2011 | by jai-2061See all my reviews

I have never seen a movie which has such a simple plot, yet its so interesting to watch. This is only because of the pure acting display by Utpal Dutt and Anil Kapoor and for a change, Rakhee.

Unlike other movies, Saaheb has a happy beginning and a serious end. The story is not gripping, but its the acting, emotions, and the innocence displayed by characters which makes this a great movie. The father and son relationship was brought to a different level, especially in the pen-ultimate scene.

There are very little flaws in the screenplay and direction, considering this released in 1985.

All in all, a good movie to watch especially if you want to see the best of Utpal Dutt.
