Amitabh really hates God
22 June 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film is OK for the first half where Amitabh meets Hema and Pran and all of them start robbing people but the second half where Amitabh's mother comes it just gets stupid

Amitabh plays the son of a priest whose father is killed by Amjad Khan Amitabh takes revenge by blinding him and then takes to crime Amitabh's hatred towards God

Pramod Chakravoty gave good direction but didn't handle a few scenes right such as Nalini Jaywant slapping Amitabh right in the face even though she cannot see and still had accuracy

Above all the cast Amitabh shows potential Hema Malini is funny Pran gives a decent performances Deven Varma is funny Amjad Khan is menacing as the villain Madan Puri is funny Nalini Jaywant is stupid
