This film has managed to capture the very essence of first loves, past loves, marriage and children.
It delves into the pain and anguish of forgotten pasts and how they are dealt with in the present. The storyline is gripping from the very first scene right to the last.
Shashi Kapoor provides an excellent portrayal of the understanding and forgiving husband while Rakhi becomes her character of a dutiful wife with a past. Amitabh Bacchan is as usual in top form playing a slightly different role to his well known character of an "angry young man".
Kabhi Kabhi delivers tears, laughter, anger, romance, frustration and most of all, satisfaction to any viewer. It is still a hit today just as it was yesterday...
