Masterji - A Laugh riot film with Rajesh Khanna in title role
6 October 2011 | by shrikant-narayananSee all my reviews

Masterji is a comedy film starring Rajesh Khanna in the title role and Sridevi's comic timing was explored for the first time in Hindi Cinema in this film. Sridevi had done many films in Tamil before this but she never got to star in a movie where she could display her comic side.This laugh riot is fully based on confrontations and difference in point of view of the lead characters in various matters.This film was released during school reopening time of that year and end of vacations.So many people flocked to theaters to see this family entertainer and resulted the film being a big hit of the year.Khanna had 15 releases in 1985 and 11 of them had him in lead roles, of which 7 were blockbusters and other 3 had him in special appearance. Khanna proved his versatility by attempting this film. 1985 saw Khanna prove again that as an actor he could do films of different genres with ease.Bhagyaraj starred in title role in Tamil opposite Urvasi and had written and directed the same in Tamil. After its success in Tamil, he wanted the Superstar himself to essay this role in Hindi and so wrote the screenplay but asked Kovelamudi Raghavendra Rao to direct the Hindi version.
