User ReviewsReview this title
The director Rajiv Rai went on to make other great movie including the superb follow up Vishwatamma, Mohra and the suspense thriller Gupt. Unfortunately he has hit a rough patch with this recent releases Pyar Ishq and Mohabbat and Asambhav flopping. Rajiv Rai has a reputation for repeating his cast, Sunny Deol came in Tridev and its follow up whilst Naseer Uddin Shah starred in Tridev, Vishwatamma and Mohra.Character actors like Tej Sapru have appeared in almost all of his movies. Tremendous fun.
I liked the work of Ravi Rai(Director). He had control over film and no overacting. That is what we call a disciplined movie which has "only" everything to please viewers. Hats off to this Masterpiece. I think Bollywood should take lessons from earlier movies rather than redoing the Hollywood flicks which only worsen the charm and viewers abuse them when they leave theaters in running movies...
Story is about 3 frustrated young men fed up of the inefficient law system in the country and set out to bring justice on their own.
The good - Dialogues, catchy songs,action sequences, plot of the movie The bad - Weak background score (quite silly at times), jobless ladies.
It you are a fan of Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff or Naseeruddin Shah, then watch this.
The two movies bear a lot of similarities with the cast, the same trio with a hatred for the villain (Amrish Puri being the villain in both the films), lavish locations and at least 1 chart buster song
The film is done-to-death
The film starts off quite nicely and has some over-the-top scenes but this was 80s masala The film gets more interesting when Sunny Deol is posted to Madhavpur and where he meets the savior Naseeruddin Shah Eventually Sunny Deol discovers his hatred for the terrorists and discovers that Jackie Shroff is part of them Or is he?
Sunny Deol makes an angry cop and this type of roles suit him Naseeruddin Shah is a pleasure to watch and does make a good innocent villager Jackie Shroff has a small role Amrish Puri is menacing and makes a balancing villain Anupam Kher is good Sharat Saxsena is usual
The story is done to death but handled well
The film starts off well and keeps your interest alive, there are several overdone scenes perhaps which 80s boasted of and several masala ingredients The film started the speciality of all RR films, long list of henchmen and goons Direction by Rajiv Rai was good, Music was a superhit by Kalyanji Ananji, with OYE OYE topping the charts sung well by Amit Kumar Other songs were good too especially GALI GALI Action scenes were as usual
Sunny Deol was going through a roughphase those days before GHAYAL though this film and CHAALBAAZ did well in 89 yet he was labelled a non actor and didn't shout how he did today In his role he is average but in one scene when he is tied to a bed he is expressionless Naseeruddin Shah excels and the role brought him fame showing his versatility Jackie Shroff in a smaller role did well Amrish Puri excels as Bhujang, though a done to death role for him Anupam Kher though looking young to play Jackie's dad still did a good job The heroines which include Madhuri, Sangeeta Bhijlani didn't get much scope Amongst rest Sharat Saxena is as usual, Shekhar Suman is okay
