In my opinion, there are darker undertones in the film, all is not so innocent. Screen play is Gulzarish, with heart poured out in every dialogue -- nonfilmi dialogue. She was only thinking about herself!

I especially enjoyed not having "specialty comic relief nonsense" that Indian movies can't do without. Be the first to contribute! Subsequently, Poornima also marries a wealthy young man. | It is an outstanding movie in which there is no villain. Yes the scenario is improbable to say the least but the cast really make the movie work.

Why do you think she was crying on Neema's wedding day after her husband was complaining how he was missing Neema? This explains why the husband or Neema did not encourage the son to visit his mother even when he was old enough to marry!!! I also guess her sister sensed that, but being noble and truly loving, pushed it at the back of her mind.

Poornima (Rekha) claims that she only married her brother-in-law because she wanted to raise her sister's child. He had an image of himself as a noble hero with such an unjust fate, romantic and caring,this was fully supported by Neema, who played a caring sister. This story is about two loving sisters, Sharda and Poornima, played by Raakhee and Rekha. Metacritic Reviews.

Sharda loses her mental balance and goes into coma upon seeing her sister get widowed on her wedding night. Parents Guide.

Neema was much older than 4! As details come flooding into her she experiences wild paranoia, is unable to trust anyone, as no one is what they claim to be, and she feels alone, lost, helpless, and distrustful. It looks like we don't have a Synopsis for this title yet. The film tells the story of a happy family suddenly faced with tragedy and how they try to cope with an altered situation.

Circumstances have dictated their lives as is in any real life. This may be one of Rekha's best movies.

Thus the husband playing piano and crying over his first wife scene is so misleading. Her treating psychiatrist is ready to discharge her to the care of her husband and her family. Subsequently, Poornima …

Long ago, the PPCC had gone for a pedicure, and, oh, the fun we had, discussing Shashi this and Shammi that. Not only Rekha but the entire cast lived in the film (I wish they could have selected different kid).

Mental illness is a subject that generally serves as a sideplot in Bollywood, for example the typical Bollywood movie would have the mother losing her mental balance after the death of her husband (Meri Jung).

The movie is by no means outdated or something giving an air of imposing self-sacrifice upon some member of the family for the sake of false family pride etc. After approximately 14 years, an inmate strikes Sharda on her head, she loses consciousness for several days. Baseraa is an excellent movie released in 1981, underscoring the importance of sacrifice. When Sharda sees her sister in a widow's garb, she loses her mental balance and is institutionalized in Pune Mental Hospital. |

But then this movie is not about the songs, it is all about feelings and how each character expressed them in their own special way.

She then finds out that Balraj had re-married and also has a son from his second marriage named Babbu. External Reviews Baseraa (1981) First, a funny meta story: For many weeks, a Friend of the PPCC had been badgering the PPCC to go get a pedicure, since the local pedicurist kept telling the friend that the pedicurist had a Shashi movie for the PPCC. And then starts a dramatic chain of lies.

After she is taken to a mental hospital, Poornima takes it upon her shoulders to look after her sister's family and her little son, and she ultimately marries her sister's husband. This husband was a good match of her, he placated himself by supporting his ex-wife in mental hospital and imagining that this way he did his duty towards her. All in all Baseera is a highly enjoyable drama and far better than the usual masala flicks. In my view, Neema was a horrible woman who intentionally entrapped a weak sister's husband.

The great Indian tradition embedding family values, has always kept love and family bonds on a high pedestal. I can easily sum up this film ''Baseraa'' in one line. Delicate story line told in a no nonsense manner. Synopsis I guess Neema was always jealous of her sister and whatever her sister had. | Just click the "Edit page" button at the bottom of the page or learn more in the Synopsis submission guide. |

Neema jumps into sister's bed on her wedding night, for example. Other reviews have stated that the ending is bad but the way I see it is that the scenario is so tricky that there was no possible good way to resolve the situation. When her sister came back, Neema was crying over her son,whom she was missing,but she was also crying the same day seeing her sister to go to marital bedroom with her lawful husband. it was too much for her to take. She just looked like a million bucks and acted like an Oscar winner. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

But alas, after over ten years, Sharda recovers and comes back. This is a Hindi language film starring Shashi Kapoor, Rekha and Rakhee.

However, when Rakhee's character Sharda awakens from her coma, you can't help but hate both Shashi Kapoor and Rekha's characters.
