This movie has some good things going for it - a good cast, some good music, and a great message on the value of education and respect for women. Alas, the script is very poor and the characters are very unsympathetic. I found them quite irritating, and did not find myself rooting for any of the lead characters. Even Dharmendra, one of my favourite actors, plays a thoroughly annoying character - a husband who is cruel to him wife. He does eventuallty repent of his emotional abuse, but of course, by then, it's almost too late. The script always finds a way to sabotage the characters' happiness. Mala Sinha's performance is good, but melodramatic and weepy (as she was prone to be sometimes), and again, her character is hard to like. With a better script and better developed characters, this would be a good film. As it is, it's simply not.
