Tabu is a great actress, and with a role that calls for far less bravura than her leading man, she is comfortably understated. Their banter runs deep through the film, and her Nina, whom you never know when to take seriously, is a perfect foil to Buddha's don't-ask-the-obvious derision.
The inimitable Zohra Sehgal plays Bachchan's wrestling-loving mother, a terrible cook who lectures him on gymming and knows him inside out, and is evidently the source of his scornful tongue.
This isn't a groundbreaking film, but it didn't set out to be. It's a maturely written film with great characters, tremendous performances and some fantastic moments.
Watch it. A brilliant sequence involving the chef, a chemist, chhatris and chachas is absolute movie magic, and in itself well worth the price of admission. Bravo. --platform47.com

He holds a double degree in M.A. He married his co-star Jaya Bhaduri of the Guddi fame on 3rd June 1973 and they have two children Shweta and Abhishek.
