Why do parents become redundant in their children’s lives after marriage?
The gloriously beautiful pair Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini played a couple torn apart by the eruption of selfishness in their children. The film questioned joint-family values and made ungrateful disrespectful progenies re-think their attitude towards their aged parents. Earlier director Ravi Tandon had attempted the same theme in Zindagi featuring Sanjeev Kumar and Mala Sinha. But the impact of Ravi Chopra’s film was resonant and timeless.
Even if he had directed no other film Ravi Chopra was immortalized by Baghbaan.
