A Feroze Khan Film
18 June 2009 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Starting from Apradh(1972)as a director and actor, Feroze Khan who recently passed away was the flamboyant guy of the classic era(70s & 80s)of Indian cinema. He was greatly influenced by the action, glamor and adventure of western movies. Even in Apradh, he would film scenes (glamorous & murder in a bath tub) which were a far cry for those days Indian movies. He was definitely ahead of his time in getting closer to the western style/touch. He always choreographed good/hit songs bred with sensational music score and sometimes showing foreign artists/dancers in his movies. Qurbani (1980) was a block buster primarily due to the super hit songs.

Janbaaz, a later day movie in the career of Feroze Khan was also a box office hit. With young, dashing and robust Aneel Kapoor to act as the prodigal Amar Singh, he got the right guy to portray the like of a spoiled scion of a powerful family. This spoiled young character had to face a suave and honest elder brother/police officer - Rajesh, beautifully played by Feroze Khan. As an affront cowboy like brother who sports hedonistic tendencies inherited from their pleasure seeking and rogue father (Amrish Puri), Amar would emerge as a contender between the sincere love affair of his elder brother -Rajesh and Reshma, played by versatile Dimple Kapadia.

In all, the story is interestingly meshed up with the dons of underworld drug trade, a criminally lenient feudal father and a reckless younger brother....... the glamorous Dimple providing obscene pool and kissing scenes with a cameo appearance by Sri Devi and Rekha.

Good entertainment and good songs. Indeed not boring to watch.
