Goofs

When Amitabh Bachchan goes to Police Inspector Anwar's house for a party, the calendar in his house shows the date January 12. Later when Munshiji is in hospital on his death bed, the calendar shows December 1983. It is impossible that it has been almost a year since the two scenes are supposed be just days apart.

Sharaabi
26 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie in 1985 when I was a kid. Since then, I have seen this movie again and again at least 100 times! (I'm serious) I like it so much...that I could never get bored of it!! The dialogues in this movie are very powerful! "Sharaabi ko sharaabi nahin tho kya pujari kahoge, geohon kogeon nahin tho kya juari kahoge? :)" Those of you who grew up watching movies of Amitabh Bachchan like myself and those of who are his die-hard fans like myself will certainly agree that Sharaabi is one of his finest movies! What I liked about this movie the most is the character played by Amitabh Bachchan of a millionaire's son who has all the money in the world but who never received any love or affection from his millionaire father who was too busy accumulating oodles of money. Despite Amitabh Bachchan's superb role of a drunken character has been shown throughout the movie, he has also shown that a person intoxicated with alcohol can be funny, classy, romantic, and knows how to treat a lady right! Sharaabi is a classic in my books and I highly recommend you see it if you love Hindi movies and if you are a fan of Amitabh Bachchan!!
