This was the last movie the popular comedian Mehmood directed. Lucky Ali, his son refused to play the "Lucky" role in the film, which his brother Manzoor Ali played instead, but Lucky Ali started playback singing with "Nasha Nasha" in this film - a bizarre song & dance number of drug addicts.
This epic, if we can call it so, as it covers the full (short) lifetime of its protagonist "Lucky", from when his parents first met, to when he is finally buried...
This movie has its good share of sometimes very silly comedy; romance at times also very well done but most of all it's a grabbing, emotional description of drug addiction and what tragically things it can do to people, demonstrated on the suppression of a once happy family. The earnestness of the message is driven home by the first closing title which reads: "Hopefully THE END to drugs"
About Mehmood, he himself played goat-Baba, the scurrilous drug dealer - clad in green, with goat horns and a goat voice, he pushes his ware to young people, while repeatedly warning them... a wacky person. He was the Gem!
If you want to see strong drama which can make your tears flow, I can strongly recommend this. But it also had the biggest laugh I ever got from a Bollywood movie.
