Mahesh Bhatt can feel the pulse of the masses. In the late 70s he made a film "Lahoo Ke Do Rang", in which he took Vinod Khanna( as James Bond image), Danny ( as Bruce Lee image), Bappi Lahiri who was then enjoying his "salad days", to compose music and took Suraj-Sanim to create the lost -and-found plot. Helen was removed from her beaten-track to prove herself an actress par excellence. The melody "chahiye thora pyaar"surged far and wide. The film proved a big commercial success.
If questioned, which is the best film by Mahesh Bhatt ? I would relentlessly name "Sarangsh".The story pivots round the ill-fated old couple, who having lost their only son, catch at the young paying guests to tide over their fathomless compunction. The film is free from arresting star-casting. Anupam was at his debut and Rohini was almost fresher on the screen. But, their outstanding performances never let us feel the want of charming young faces. The old couple live in a body to die in a body.
