Perhaps, I should have just stuck to the song and let it be. Another song added fuel to the fire. Tujh mein kya hain deewaney is another love song that convinced me that I should delay my watching this 1983 film. It had Tina Munim (her slim and shapely frame looked so good in those dresses) with a chic hairstyle romancing Rishi Kapoor (he was yet to become podgy and was so smart).
Frankly, am not so impressed with Soni's handiwork. Bade Dil Wala has too many things going on at the
Rishi Kapoor is smart, handsome and tries hard. He is Amrit, a popular singer at a hotel where people flock to hear him. He is in dire need of some money but is not desperate to steal it. He is charming and has Kajal (Kalpana Iyer), his co-performer falling all over him, despite having a boyfriend in Bhagwat Singh

What could have been a gripping drama fails to be so so some silly loopholes. The comic relief is hardly comic. I was so shocked to see Dhumal. He looked frail and emaciated, hardly his old self. Aruna Irani is wasted as a vagabond. Her side of the story is too forced and rushed.
The point is the narrative is not flawless. The scenes do not flow into each other like water. Even though the story is good, it looks like the actors are not giving in their hundred percent. Except of course, Pran, who breathed every part he played. I loved how handsome he looked with that wig. He is fit like a fig and wears awesome clothes. Might I add that he was giving Rishi Kapoor stiff competition in the personality department.
well-etched. He does have some good scenes but I'm so used to seeing him call the shots that picturing him as the absconding one isn't satisfying. I guess, I simply should have been happy with those two wonderful songs that caught my fancy...
