Late actor Sunil Dutt was an actor par excellence and a man of such staunch principles and quiet dignity that even today he is remembered and revered for his honesty. Born as Balraj Dutt, Sunil remains one of the most revered actors of Bollywood. He was married to Nargis Dutt, another great actor of her times with whom he had three children – actor Sanjay Dutt and daughters Priya and Namrata Dutt.
The film’s narrative progresses through dialogues, reminiscences and background music. Vasant Desai gave the background score including two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The film’s plot revolves around a man who comes home to find his wife and son is not at home; thinking that they have left him, he starts to reminisce his life with them and without them and starts to have misgivings and regrets about his past indiscretions. The film is a soliloquy and only Dutt’s character speaks in the film. In the 113 minutes film, Sunil is the only actor that appears on the screen.
In the upcoming biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life, the role of Dutt senior will be essayed by Paresh Rawal. Rawal said that bringing Dutt’s honesty, dignity and pain on screen was the most challenging part of the role.
