Jigar is awesome film from the 90's!
6 March 2009 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

1992 flick 'Jigar' is an awesome film. One of the best entertainers from the 90's. The film's script is mediocre, but the way the director handles it is truly commendable. The film was blockbuster when it released and even today the film enjoys a great following. I love this film!

Songs: Pyar Ke Kagaz Pe is one the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I love this song!

Performances: Ajay Devgan has done a great job. Lets not forget this is one of those flick when Devgan was new in films. Karishma Kapoor looks lost. Paresh Rawal is excellent as the villain. Arjun is also damn good. Aroona Irani is functional. Ajit is superb. Gulshan Grover excels. Others also do their part well.

'Jigar' is a solid entertainer. Two Thumbs Up!
