Red Rose - Classic Murder Mystery Thriller Film of Rajesh Khanna
9 September 2011 | by shrikant-narayananSee all my reviews

Rajesh Khanna played a psychopath in this murder mystery and thriller classic film. Due to its unorthodox story-line and since it was made in 1980, it was very ahead of its time for Hindi Film Audiences. The film bombed at the box office but got critical acclaims for the story-line and Khanna's strong attention holding performance.Lot of political parties back in 1980 protested that the film be banned but amid protests the film was released but audience did not flock to theatres. Subsequently look at English film like Joker (2019) which became succcesful despite it having similar storyline.Redrose has been remade in Russian and Japanese languages.

Rajesh Khanna has done films of all genres and people used to go with their families to go to theater to watch his films. But for this film people feared to go out with family and this affected its box office collections.People did not want to see their hero doing wrong things. Its a must match for people who are fan of films from phsycological thriller or adventure or mystery genre. A must watch for both Rajesh Khanna fans and his detractors. Kamal hassan won many awards for the same role in Tamil, but Khanna was not even nominated in any award function for best actor, in-spite of Khanna having given splendid performance.
