Storyline

He then meets with Nurse Shanti, who lives an impoverished lifestyle with her ailing mother, and decides to perform surgery, but she passes away, and a guilt-ridden Ravi marries Shanti much to the chagrin of his mentor, Kaka, who had hoped that he would marry his daughter, Rajni. The couple then travel to Kashmir for their honey-moon, and then settle down to a harmonious relationship.

An Ignored Classic
27 October 2003 | by hypergurlgowri89See all my reviews

Saathi is such a wonderful movie it's unbelievable. The story is very unique...and I don't wanna explain it because it would only take out the suspence. Wonderful songs, and an enthrallingly excellent performance once again by Vyjayantimala. No dances, but they aren't needed in such a classic. Rajnder acted great, and so did Simi. You just have to see this movie that should have been renowned as a classic!
