Raaj Kumar, Sunil Dutt & Danny at their best
1 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

If this movie is not rated 10/10 then no other movie deserves 10/10 it is as simple as that. 36 Ghante is a flawless movie based on real life situation of a happy family. 3 convicts keep the family as their captive by forcibly entering the house, Sunil Dutt, Danny & Ranjit play their roles superbly. Raaj Kumar's performance is simply outstanding in the movie as a family head. Danny's restless monkey like antics were the very best in the movie, I think he equals Amjad Khan in Sholay, he really looked an eerie monkey like dangerous criminal. 36 Ghante is a must watch for any cinema lover, a masterpiece. Raaj Tilak who has some ordinary movies to his credit stroked gold with this superb movie, all the cast of the movie played perfectly to the simple story line.
