Bachchan in a negative role.
1 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Bachchan in a negative role. Bachchan loves Yogeeta Bali. But she does not reciprocate his love and instead loves Navin Nischol. Jealousy, envy and lust take over Bachchan, who then slowly poisons Yogeeta's love life.

Bachchan has done a very good job as the jealous lover, who does not tolerate his love loving someone else. This was one of his earliest movies.

Amitabh Bachcan arrived as a star with Zanjeer but the fact that the industry was sitting on a powder keg waiting to be ignited became obvious after seeing his performance in this film. As the silent, unrequited lover of Yogeeta Bali, Amitabh singed the screen with his intensity. In the scene where Om Prakash dismisses his chances of becoming Yogeeta's suitor, you can almost see the blood racing to his eyes and his anger rising like a geyser. The cold-blooded murder that follows seems like a natural extension of his impassioned anger. His fury abated, his cold demeanor thereafter is a treat to watch for all horror-hungry cinema-goers. Hero Navin Nischol, despite cornering all the songs was completely overshadowed by Amitabh's astringent presence.

Co-actor Om Prakash, a hawk-eyed veteran, had declared him as a star-in-the-making the moment Amitabh shot the murder sequence with him.
