Typical Manmohan Desai movie
19 September 2004 | by pop-16See all my reviews

This is a very hard movie to get your hands on in Britain so I had to order it overseas. Overall, I think it is a very good movie where Amitabh Bachchan plays Toofan who is a robin hood to those who suffer the atrocities of the robbers and Shyam who is a magician. They were separated by the father, played by Pran who only appeared in the first 30 minutes. It's very strange why this movie is not shown on TV. At the second half of this movie, Toofan and Shyam start playing opposite characters. It's a typical Manmohan Desai movie, brothers separated and found. Farooq Sheikh was good in a small role playing Amitabh's (Shyam) best friend. Meenakshi Sheshadri looked great but had a very short role while Amrita Singh had no character name but had not much to offer. Goga Kapoor didn't really do too much to convince he was the main villain as it was his only movie playing the main villain. The best songs of the movie are Jaadugar Ka Jaadu and Don't Worry Be Happy, sung by Amitabh Bachchan himself. I think it's a good movie and recommend it to Amitabh fans.
