Action Suspense Thriller
19 July 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

It is the first & last movie of Jeetendra & Anitabh together, when the movie was released Jeetendra was a already a established actor & given several hits, while Amitabh was struggling, Gehri Chaal was a master piece suspense thriller that time, script was very superb,while action scenes were very well composed specially Jeetendra Jeep entering into truck through wheeled ramp, gun fights in Prem Chopra's den, Jeetendra looks dynamic in big eye glasses, he has done brilliant as CID officer role, he is a all rounder performer, Hema too acted well & looks glamorous, While Amitabh looks not so good his physique was not too good as Jeetendra & even the dressing sense that of Amitabh was very poor, Acting wise he is good, Prem Chopra gives his good performance as Main Vallian, Bindu as vamp too good, Gehri Chaal must a watch movie for those who like action suspense thriller type movies.
