Babuji Dheere Chalna...
5 April 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Guru Dutt's 'Aar Paar' is a film noire-type entertaining thriller. During his time, Dutt, along with the likes of Raj Khosla and Dev Anand have specialized in this genre and have delivered some of the classiest thrillers in Indian cinema. Yet, 'Aar Paar' isn't without its flaws. Some sequences have been dragged on too much and the pacing, at some points, is very slow. Moreover, the Johnny Walker track could have easily been reduced. Most of the songs are a delight. The only one i didn't like was the 'Suhn Suhn' song which is also repeated in a sadder version. Guru Dutt plays his part of the streetsmart driver with ease. Hotties Shyama and Shakila seem to have done an odd switch of roles that had made them famous. Shyama who played a vamp in 'Bhai Bhai' does a fine job as a bubbly down to earth girl-next-door. Shakila who played a sweet charming girl-next-door is very convincing here as an alluring vamp. Overall, 'Aar Paar' is something that can easily be enjoyed with the whole family. It may not be among Dutt's best works but is nonetheless a fun watch.
