Sooryavansham (English: Lineage of the Sun god) is a 1999 Indian Hindi musical drama film starring Amitabh Bachchan in a dual role, Soundarya and Jayasudha. The film's audio cassettes and CDs were released by Venus Records & Tapes Ltd. in April 1999. Sooryavansham is the third installment of the series of multilingual films portraying an Indian father's undying love for his son, which is sometimes overshadowed by anger and wrath. Among Amitabh Bachchan's four average grossers of 1999, Sooryavansham was the second to be released. The film's initial collections were tremendous and theatrical run was also wonderful. It retained a strong position at the Box Office over the time it was screened. Besides its emotive story, Sooryavansham is remembered for its melodious songs, background music and comedic sequences. Before Sooryavansham, the trio of Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher and Kader Khan had worked together in the 1998 film Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with Bachchan in dual roles. Sooryavansham marked the Bollywood debut of Telugu director E. V. V. Satyanarayana and remained his first and only directorial in Hindi.[citation needed ] It is also the only Hindi film that the late actress Soundarya acted in.[better source needed ] It is the official Hindi remake of the Tamil film Suryavamsam (1997), starring Sarath Kumar and Devayani, directed by Vikraman.
The film did average business at the box office and Amitabh Bachchan's performance in dual roles was praised by critics. In July 1999, about two months after the release of Sooryavansham, Amitabh Bachchan was accorded "The Greatest Star of Stage or Screen" distinction by BBC News online users. Since its release it has been telecast many times on the television channel - Set Max.[citation needed ]
In an interview during Sooryavansham's inaugural shooting on 17 August 1998, actress Soundarya said that she was excited when a role in the film was offered to her and to have got an opportunity to co-star with Amitabh Bachchan. Having studied Sanskrit, the actress added, she was quite comfortable with Hindi, and could read and write it. She also asked the viewers to be optimistic about the film, although the actress was a bit dubious about her role. Sooryavansham's mahurat ceremony was attended by a number of celebrities from the Telugu cinema, including Akkineni Nagarjuna and Venkatesh Daggubati. Although revolving around father-son relationship, Sooryavansham is in the nature of Amitabh Bachchan's 70s' and 80s' drama films, in quite a few of which he shared the screen with Rekha, notably Silsila (1981 film). Mr Bachchan said that if the story was good and he liked it, he would not mind acting with Rekha again.
The film shows a true to life story of a typical Indian family, where the esteem of the family matters the most. The story is a portrayal of the job of a responsible father, obligations of a dutiful son, role of a virtuous wife and harmony in the family unified by psychological bonds.
