decent
10 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rajiv Rai gave us several good commercial big hits like TRIDEV(89), MOHRA(1994) and a good thriller like GUPT(1997) after which he gave disasters

YUDH(1985) is one of his decent films too

Though not original yet it keeps you engrossed

The film starts with a robbery of cash and we are shown glimpses of Anil Kapoor who is called Junior by Danny and does all bad acts while the other Anil is the good guy Avinash a lawyer Pran is the commissioner who appoints honest cop Jackie Shroff to catch the robber and he arrests Shatrughan Sinha who is innocent and then slowly the mystery is solved

The plot is waferthin but handled well The bad Anil isn't shown fully till later in the film and we are kept in mystery as to whether it's really a dual role or just 1 guy The film does have romance, some bad disco song.etc also lot of disguises by Jackie Shroff There are plot holes like nothing much shown of Shatrughan Sinha in between,also Hema suddenly breaking into a song at Dannys den is amateurish also the film has several formulaic scenes as predicted and it also follows the mundane formula The film is also stretched for too long, But for a film in 1985 it is forgiven

The film keeps you engrossed always throughout and the twists are well handled but towards the end it gets too predictable and filmy

Directorally Rajiv Rai is good Music is a rage but too many songs do stretch the film

Performances Anil Kapoor plays a dual role perfectly this was his first dual role after which he played it in KISHEN KANHAIYAA(1990) As Junior he gets his most famous phrase- JHAKAAS which was born from this role and he enacts the role perfectly he underplays it as Avinash which is a straightforward role comparitvely yet he does it well Jackie plays the honest cop act again after ANDAR BAHAR(1984) and he kept playing such roles again n again yet he does it well Pran is okay Shatrughan Sinha has 3-4 scenes and is releagated to the backseat surprising though Hema is credited as special appearance she has more screenspace then him, he is as usual though looks overweight Hema is decent in her part Tina Munim is okay Danny does his villainy again and does a good job Nutan is as usual Satyen Kappu has a small role Madan Puri too is wasted
