Absoulute entertainer
10 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Geraftaar is a non stop entertaining movie. Another classic from the legend himself Amitabh Bachchan. It has the regular 80s storyline about boy separated from family, father gets killed etc. Geraftaar entertains thankfully because of Big B and Rajnikhant. Rajnikhant is a south Indian actor with good fast skills. Watching him with Amitabh is great fun. The other lead is Kamal Hassan. Kamal is practically the main actor in this movie. Amitabh doesn't appear till half way, that still doesn't stop the movie to disappoint. geraftaar has a few villains, the one that shines is Kader Khan and his dumb son Shakti kapoor. It has one nice song Dhoop mein. If you haven't seen this film, i suggest you watch it.
