Muqaddar Ka Sikandar




What karma! Say some. The designs of the Almighty are inscrutable, say others. There is one who has well earned his paradise, told my grandmother. We can not look Muqaddar Ka Sikandar without putting it into perspective with the afterlife, as the life of this boy is marked with the seal of fate (Muqaddar). Can we fight destiny? This is the whole history of Muqaddar Ka Sikandar.


The homeless child found a little warmth only by a little girl whose servant he was. "Memsahab" treated him like a human being, worrying about whether he was cold, he was hungry. One day, without warning, the father of the little girl took her away in Mumbai, the unnamed child in turn is party to Mumbai to find her. Fate seemed to be more lenient, he found an adoptive mother who gave him his name, Sikandar, and a sister. He found Memsahab. Alas, the rally was short-lived.

However, adult, Sikandar (Amitabh Bachchan) provides. It's rich-and honestly, he bought the house in front of Memsahab (Rakhee) whose father suffered setbacks, and prepares the betrothal of his sister. Yet even Zhora (Rekha), the beautiful courtesan, can distract him from his torment. Memsahab only has the key to the heart of Sikandar, but this can not articulate two words audible in his presence, as the emotion hugs. Then comes Vishal (Vinod Khanna), a young lawyer without argument; Sikandar the fact hired by the father of Memsahab.


Beyond the theme of destiny, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar is also a beautiful film about the blindness of feelings. Sikandar had a traumatized childhood separation, the absence of love. Memsahab means everything to him and he can not get rid of that childish adoration. But Memsahab in question was not at all the same emotional investment, for her Sikandar never really existed. Some scenes are extremely moving, Sikandar finds adult talking to Memsahab the same phrasing, the same gesture that as a child (Amitabh is definitely a great actor). On the other side of town, Zhora Bhai is dying love for the beautiful Sikandar who do not even see ...


Add to that a speedy villain to fight (Amjad Khan), a reckoning and a good set of dishum , Muqaddar Ka Sikandar is a masala grew large, one of the great hits of the 70s.

Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha are excellent, the few scenes they share scotchent to the screen, as the emotion is palpable. Vinod Khanna is a confusing natural. His head-to-head with Amitabh on his hospital bed is very simple but it's also a great moment of cinema. Only Rakhee is a bit theatrical and detonates in the landscape, it is much better in Kabhi Kabhie .

Music and Kalyanji Anandji is heartbreaking, driven by the voice of Kishore Kumar (O Saathi Re Tere Bina), Mohamed Rafi (Muqaddar Ka Sikandar) and Lata Mangeshkar (Salaam-e-ishq, Meri Jaan). Each song is a gem, and the beautiful Rekha dancing beautifully on the voice of Lata. O Saathi Reeeee long resonate in your ears ...
