Drishti (1990) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Love Theme)

Drishti - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

With his "Drishti" (Vision) Govind Nihalani takes you on to a journey into the minds of both man & woman after their so called socially accepted institution of marriage. It’s about how at times a married couple feels like complete strangers and un-attracted towards each other and also there are some moments in which they are intensely in deep love with each other.

The movie is about the strange and questionable tradition of marriage. It is about all those indecisive moments, when our heart & mind are in conflict with each other. The director impressively captures the dilemma between commitments and passion. There surely is a time after some years of marriage, when both husband & wife have to reshape and reinvent their relationship in order to give it a fresh meaning. And that’s the real message the movie has for its viewers.  

All the actors in the movie, are well known for their respective talent and they are just perfect in the scenes together. You will find the now famous Hollywood director, Shekhar Kapoor acting as the husband and also, Irfan Khan playing the third angle more than a decade before he got his own due recognition. That too makes it a worth seeing movie on the most talked about subject of marriage. However I was also told that it is highly inspired from a famous movie of World Cinema. But still I consider it as a masterpiece by Govind Nihalani, so don’t miss it.

Directed By Govind Nihalani
Starring : Dimple Kapadia, Shekhar Kapoor, Irfan Khan & Mita Vashisht

Music By Kishori Amonkar

Searching this movie since music is by Kishori Amonkar. Unfortunately Youtube full length movie is without sound track.

Thanks for writing in Shrirang Limaye.
Please do check as I think the original DVD of the film is probably available too.
However as I feel the soundtrack will be complete only in its original Audio CD which will sure be a tough thing to find in the present scenario.
But thanks to Gaana.com, you can hear the complete soundtrack of the film at the following link:


Enjoy and Keep Visiting.
