Did You Know?


Mithun was grateful that Zeenat Aman agreed to work opposite him. Many big heroines like Tina Munium refused to work with Mithun during his struggling days. It was Zeenat Aman who stated she liked Mithun and believed he was talented and had no issues working with him. Zeenat was Mithun's first heroine was was a bonafied super star and from the A grade bracket. Taqdeer was signed before the film Ashaanti. In Ashaanti Mithun worked opposite Praveen Babi. Zeenat Aman had worked opposite top stars such as Amitabh,Dharmendra . Something Ranjeeta Kaur,Sarika,Rameshwari,Bindiya Goswami,Shoma Anand,Kajal Kiran etc had not. Wife Yogita Bali had worked with Amitabh in his early days and with Dharmendra in a supporting role. ( Poonam Dhillon and Rati Agnihorhri had already worked with Mithun prior to 1983, but they were still rising in their career's and yet to attain super stardom). See more »

The hidden treasure
30 October 2010 | by Peter_YoungSee all my reviews

Taqdeer is a rather enjoyable masala film. The film is partly a lost-and-found melodrama, partly a romance, partly an action flick, partly a social, and it is a hidden family treasure that carries the narrative forward. The story is very complicated and interesting, and the sequences involving the characters of Mithun Chakraborty and Zeenat Aman were particularly entertaining. The movie stars Shatrughan Sinha as Shiva, a young lonely man who lost his father and sister when he was a kid and no seeks revenge. Sinha is quite good in this role. Hema Malini plays his love interest. She is very graceful as the kind-hearted courtesan who was lost during a car accident in which her mother died and later found and adopted by a woman who is a brothel owner. Mithun Chakraborty is excellent as the silly and stylish rich guy who cares for nothing but enjoying life, drinking, chasing women and spending money. The one who steals the show is actually Zeenat Aman who delivers a wonderful comic performance as the sexy, sophisticated, carefree, yet kindhearted woman-thief. Some of her scenes are of the film's best and funniest and her chemistry with Chakraborty is great. Towards the end, Taqdeer starts losing its great spirit of joy and becomes very sentimental. I still liked the ending and the way the story was concluded. Taqdeer is not a great film, but it has its moments and it flows well with the nice songs and the unexpected proceedings. As a masala film of its sort, it is successful and enjoyable and deserves to be seen with the family.
