Himmatwala:A Idiotic piece of work by Sajid Khan in the name of Entertainment!
1 April 2013 | by GaneshKSalianSee all my reviews

Himmatwala directed by Sajid Khan is one of the worst remakes I have ever seen.

The 1983's Jeetendra-Sridevi's Himmatwala was entertaining while 2013's Ajay Devgn-Tammanah's Himmatwala is horror offered to the audience in the name of entertainment.

While the movie has a running time of 150 minutes,I could not endure this nonsense for more than an hour and I had to leave the theater!

The action sequences,too,are boring,because they are the same repetitive action scenes which we have seen in many movies before.

The direction by Sajid Khan is done to death.

The screenplay is badly written.

The music is sonorous.

The dialogs written by Sajid-Farhad are awful.

Performances: Ajay Devgn is strictly okay.Tamannah overacts.Mahesh Manjrekar is fine.Asrani hams and is wasted in a small role.

Special mention of Paresh Rawal,who steals the show with his fabulous performance!

All in all,Himmatwala directed by Sajid Khan is an Idiotic piece of work presented to the audience in the name of Entertainment!I am giving it a generous one on ten(Solely for Paresh Rawal). A Disappointment!
