'Anand' is the story of two friends, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. Rajesh Khanna is terminally ill with cancer. When his doctor friend (Amitabh) comes to know of this he marvels at 'Anand's' zest for life. There is no sign of imminent death in him. He laughs and makes everybody laugh. Somewhere inside, Anand is lonely, he is aware of his fate, but tries to live every moment fully. He brushes off fear and enjoys gifts of nature the sun, moon, breeze, twilight and laughter. It is only in laughter that he breathes his last. The film deals with the inevitable end, death, and yet breathes life in such a morbid subject with lively performances and great songs. Anand is, Rajesh Khanna's best film to date.
