Morality of the Song:-

Hoga masiha ... Hoga masiha saamne tere,
Phir bhi na tu bach paayega
Tera apnaâ Tera apna khoon hi aakhir tujhko aag lagaayega
Aasmaan mein ... Aasmaan me udne waale mitti mein mil jaayega
Sukh mein tere ... Sukh mein tere saath chalenge,
Dukh mein sab mukh modenge
Duniya waale ... Duniya waale tere bankar tera hi dil todenge
Dete hain ... Dete hain bhagwaan ko dhokha,Insaan ko kya chhodenge


Upkaar is sheer entertainment wrapped in patriotism. Still the movie is highly admirable and despite the change in times, relevant even today in several ways. The family bonds, the importance of the ancestral property, the love for the motherland, the sentiment of sacrifice etc. have not got outdated with time. It still appeals and should not be missed by the people interested in watching golden oldies. It has a great repeat value and the first time watcher will definitely like to watch it again.
