Multi Starer Horre Movie
4 September 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Jaani Dushman was a Horrer Suspense movie with huge multi star cast, the negativity of the film is poor special effects as usual in 1970's movies, action stunts were not well composed, In the entire film Sunil Dutt dominated & sidelined Shatu, Reena Roy side lined Rekha, Vinod Mehra turns from mad beggar to CBI Officer his role is not heavy, Prem Nath as Pujari always confused to audience, Plus point of this movie is 3 songs 1. by Mohammed Rafi CHALO RE DOLI UTHAI 2. TERE HAATOON MEIN PEHNAKE CHOODIA 3.Kishore Kumar. Jeetendra dance number & his acting was superb natural Neetu Singh acting was too good, Sanjeev Kumar as usual give power packed performance, Bindy Gu Swami & Sarika wasted, Dialogues between Shatrughan Sinha & Sunil Dutt are good still I remember that KYUN SHERA TAYARI KARKE AYE HO- TAYARI ANARI KARTE HAI KHILADI NAHI, After all it can be watchable movie.
