The angry young man returns
26 June 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Amitabh and Shashi and Shashi and Sanjeev and all three in Trishul made by Yash Chopra who later remade this film into VIJAY(1988), PARAMPARA (1991) and even worser David Dhawan's YEH HAI JALWA(2002)

The film starts with Sanjeev-Waheeda romance and then Amitabh comes in with a stylish swagger that only Amitabh could do After an emotional talk with his mom, Vijay comes to Mumbai to find R.K. Gupta

Shashi always got the flirting scenes and shared good chemistry with Hema. But Rakhee impressed as the genius secretary of Amitabh Her chemistry with Amitabh was awesome

Direction by Yash Chopra is superb, He does a great job handling the drama Music by Khayyam is superb too, Mohabbat Bade Kaam Ki is the best one and all songs are superb, Here too Kishore is a voice for Shashi and not Amitabh just like DEEWAAR Dialogues are power packed

Amitabh excels in his tailormade role, every expression, dialogue leaves such a huge impact. Yash Chopra and Amitabh were a great team and always gave their best together Sanjeev Kumar too is superb in his chameleon kinda character He suits the role and his chemistry with Amitabh is superb though he was hardly in his 30s he suits the 50+ character well Shashi is relegated to the background mostly though he does have some moments, He does a great job Though he doesn't get much importance compared to DEEWAAR and KABHIE KABHIE Amongst rest Rakhee does a great job, in 1978 she paired with Bachchan in other blockbusters too like MQS and KASME VAADE Here too she does a great job Hema Malini is good too and looks nice, Poonam Dhillon is okay Sachin is awkward Prem Chopra does a good job as the bad guy Waheeda leaves a mark in a cameo
