Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, Girish Karnad, Ranjeeta Kaur, as well as Nirupa Roy feature in Teri Kasam, a 1982 Indian Bollywood film directed by A. C. Tirulokchandar.
The movie was indeed a remake of the 1972 Tamil movie Puguntha Veedu, which had previously been adapted in Telugu as Puttinillu Mettinillu (1973) as well Kannada as Devara Gudi (1975).
Dolly (Poonam Dhillon) was raised in even the most opulent manner by her wealthy brother. Tony (Kumar Gaurav) comes from such an impoverished household and attends Dolly’s college. He is head over heels in love with Dolly, but he is afraid to confess it. Dolly, on the other hand, is smitten by a voice she has never heard before. After she realises it’s Tony’s voice, she makes the decision to marry him.
Tony, on the other hand, will not marry until his sister Shanti has married. As a result, Dolly’s brother weds Shanti. Everyone’s lives are tense as a result of Dolly’s attitude. She treats Tony’s mother with contempt and admits her to a hospital’s general ward. When Tony hears of this, he becomes enraged and decides to quit his wife and work. He decides to make a career out of singing and becomes a well-known performer. What follows is a storey of Dolly and Tony coming to terms with their feelings. As in previous movies, it was all about the rich-poor divide. Then there’s the humiliation, that leads to the ascent of a hero as a renowned singer.
Amit Kumar sang all or most of the film’s tracks (such as a duet alongside Lata Mangeshkar) and they became quite successful.
Amit Kumar was nominated for a Filmfare Award for The Best Male Playback Singer again for the track “Yeh Zameen Gaa Rahi Hai.”
