Typical Amitabh Junk from the bottom of the bin
14 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is an example of how to mint money from poor customers and lure them into watching a film as badly acted and directed as this. Well, there are three Amitabhs, two of them stick to his typical angry man )1 young, 1 old) routine while the third one is an over the top character that Amitabh fails miserably to play. He overacts in a lot of scenes and fights scenes are so cheesy that you can feel them slipping away. Amitabh had put on weight by this film. He is stuffed and you can see his belly hanging out in so many scenes. As bad as Amitabh is, producers roped in Zeenat Aman and Perveen Bobby to lead roles. Their input is insignificant and hardly help the story. Villains include Shakti Kapoor, Amjad Khan and Kader Khan among others. However again none of them is allowed to develop to accommodate maximum footage for Amitabh. Thankfully the film was rejected outrightly by the public back in 1983 and was a major flop in Amitabh's career. Its unbelievable how far connections to politicians can get you in Bollywood when your acting skills are are so worthless.
