List of Saadiyaan Movie Reviews

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:BollywoodHungama

SADIYAAN is set in the 1970s, but travels to the partition days. Raj Kanwar tackles a unique theme this time – of two mothers. The first is the biological mother, who gets separated from her child during the partition. The second raises the child like her own, when she crosses to India after partition. The basic premise is wonderful and you can draw parallels with Hindu mythology. SADIYAAN is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on the love story, which falls on the predictable, mundane stuff, with the Hindu-Muslim angle thrown in. But Raj Kanwar reserves the best for the second part, when the two women meet and the story takes rapid turns. But, let’s face it, SADIYAAN is not everyone’s idea of entertainment, since the ‘multiplex junta’ doesn’t patronise desi cinema anymore, unlike the single screen audience that adores this kind of cinema. So what’s the final verdict? Watch it if you like desi melodrama of yore, which comes alive with SADIYAAN.

This one’s not only dealing with history, it dabbles with a kind of cinema that seems to have become history too. Oh come on! Who’s got the patience for such euphemisms and moth-balled romances! Some of our film makers surely need to take a reality check and see what’s happening in Indian cinema, of late. Keep pace or keep counting the viewers in the audi, literally on your finger tips. And what’s the long line of veterans doing in this weepy affair. Rekha, Rishi and Hema are totally wasted, even as the debut pair leave much to be desired.

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Sukanya Verma Site:Rediff

Sadiyaan, a rushed exercise in putting together a preposterous script and patchy screenplay featuring reliable veterans and incompetent newcomers. what director Raj Kanwar does is make a rather feeble attempt to palm off an unaesthetic period film and its dated sensibilities to an audience that has clearly moved on.That’s the thing with Sadiyaan. It actually feels as long as its title for Kanwar not only rakes an old-fashioned subject, his treatment is outmoded too. And there’s nothing vintage about that.
