Kader Khan the legend acted in this and wrote the most incredible dialogue full of comedy and wisdom.Jackie Shroff was also good in his lead role as were the always amazing Padmini and late Nirupa Roy.The film is always relevant but way better than today's nonsensical films this is a family drama with a message that should always hit the spot!! Prem Chopra plays an Asshat and was also funny Kader Khan you are an absolute Legend. Give this a watch and I promise you will not be disappointed.
