Dimple Kapadia shines in an otherwise ordinary film
13 February 2015 | by anthony_fernandes80See all my reviews

Haque was one of those films that generated immense curiosity because of its promo that was released on video cassettes where Dimple Kapadia returns Anupam Kher's slap on her face with the exact same! Pretty impressive for 1991. For that scene alone, I believe many people were intrigued by this film that had the leading lady as the central protagonist. Sadly, Mahesh Bhatt's script is let down by an over dramatic screenplay. A lot of scenes are more filmy than real (but again, this was the 90s). Dimple Kapadia was outstanding and so was Anupam Kher. Sonu Walia had precious little to do except sizzle in the Anuradha Paudwal Number and so did Asif. Still, this is probably his better roles and films. Anand-Milind came up with a couple of hummable tunes, but none of them were popular. Harish Bhosle tried to make this a hard hitting film but lack of entertainment and an inconsistent screenplay according to me ruin it for him. Watch it for Dimple Kapadia.
