The film slalomed #kumargaurav
aka Bunty to stardom. #lovestory
was his biggest milestone and millstone. Milestone because every debutant would compare in the future to Gaurav. Millstone because nothing Gaurav did would match upto the spectacular success of his debut film. Gaurav a good actor did scores of indifferent films with great music. He was wonderful in films like #Naam #Janam
. Gaurav was heralded as the next big thing but nothing came much of it.
directed Love story but the very obsessive and domineering #Rajendrakumar
had differences of opinion with Rawail and didn’t credit him for the love story. Love story also was not a happy story for debutant #VijetaPandit
who sank into oblivion. She let her heart rule her head. It made big news when gaurav broke up his engagement with raj kapoor’s younger daughter and took up with pandit.
Love story was notable for its mellifluous music by #Rdburman
and some lovely Lata Mangeshkar and Amit kumar songs. One notable @bhosle.asha
song made all the right noise for its jazzy moves and sensuous. The previous year Gaurav’s yet to be brother in law #sanjaydutt
had made his debut in rocky. The film sank but the music like love story is hummed to date. A couple of years later jackie shroff, Anil kapoor and sunny deol too made their big screen splashes. The only downside: everytime a newcomer who’s done superbly, fails he’s then unfavourably compared to #kumargaurav
