The Amitabh classic tragedy. What can I say about Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, except that I grew up on it. I have listened to the LP at home, an innumerable number of times and each word and note of each song is imprinted on the soul.
It was quite the tragedy, and I hated movies in which Amitabh used to die in the end (I used to take it personally and had to be re - assured that he is not really dead and will come back again in another movie). I had a dada who had promised me that he will learn Karate and go and fight Amjad Khan for me. Such was my involvement with the movie.
Even now if the movie is showing on television, I am drawn to sit down to watch it and I invariably find my eyes wet when the - Zindagi to Bewafa Hai.....by Rafi peals out at the end of the movie.
What do I say about the movie, it was an out and out Amitabh flick. In today's day and age, the tacky sets, dated action scenes and costumes will not appeal. But then this is a movie made for a certain era and let it remain at that.
