Sari Clad Sridevi in Jaag Utha Insaan (1984)

Released on July 6, 1984, the remake of Telugu film Saptapadi (1981), also directed by K Vishwanath, was remade for the Bollywood belt with Sridevi, Mithun Chakraborthy and Rakesh Roshan.

Sridevi acts and dances brilliantly in the intricate drama that sadly, despite its mere 2 crore budget, failed to set the box-office on fire. The film  released in the summer where mindless pot-boilers were all the rage (which Sri later went on to corner). Upon re-viewing on television, many have liked the intense drama. Watch out for the underrated taandav Sridevi does in the film...
