I remember seeing this movie when I was 19. It isn't a fascinating story but there's something about it which has remained in my mind all these years. It is a very nice and emotional story about an artist's struggle to succeed and his reactions to the culture shock of the big city.

A highlight of the story is the relationship that develops between Ajay and Jyoti. The on screen chemistry between the leading artist Aayush Kumar and Suchitra is particularly good and they seem very comfortable with each other. These scenes have been acted very well.

Mamta Kulkarni on the other hand is quite forgettable. But she was never an actress anyways and the direction is nothing to be spoken about.

There are some movies that you find difficult to remember soon after you've seen them, however this one has remained in memory for more than a decade. I find it very nostalgic.
