A lackluster beginning but a spectacular climax......
18 November 2013 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Reshma Aur Shera" differs from the typical Hindi movies from 70s with a familiar premise of character development. Here the focus is on the cinematography and costumes as a result of which the first half of the film is very slow. Most of the actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Ranjit, Vinod Khanna, and Amrish Puri were doing their earlier roles which get less footage in the film. Waheeda Rehman and Sunil Dutt share much of the screen presence; and I say Waheeda Rehman's performance overshadows Sunil Dutt's role by the climax. The film deserves a big applause in terms of its cinematography and a spectacular climax. Sadly, this huge scale artistic movie though is impressive at times and different fails to fully give its impact due to its poorly developed characters and a dragging pace at the first half. Overall, this Rajput feudal drama starts with a lackluster beginning and heads for a better second half.

Rating: 1.5 stars out of 4
