Amitabh Bachchan Steals the Show
2 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A GREAT film with a good STORY LINE, HAS a GREAT CAST but ONE STAR STANDS OUT OF THEM ALL, Mr.Amitabh Bachchan,

What can we say,Which hasn't already been said about Amitabh Bachchan, He turns an hit film into a blockbuster with the performance's he delivers, Thn with Vinod Khanna and Shammi Kapoor providing good performances as well, but as always Amitabh Bachchan stands out.

The film runs very smoothly and with negative role by Amjad Khan and Kader Khan Parvarish had something for everyone.

Parvarish is a must watch if your Amitabh Bachchan or a Vinod Khanna fan, its great in script, Some great songs which change the mood of the film and that ain't just placed in the film they fit in with the story. If you liked Suhaag, Amar Akbar Anthony and Khoon Pasina this is a much watch film, a film you can watch over and over again.
