Great Entertaining movie
18 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Karma is a great entertaining movie from Subash Ghai. Subash has given us some great films like Khal Nayak, Karz and Hero. Karma tells the story of Dilip Kumar, a Prison Jailer who unfortunately has the responsibility of holding Terrorist Anupom Kher. Anupom Kher escapes and is responsible for the massacre of Dilips family. Dilip then decides to lead a secret mission, with the help of three death row convicts. The storyline is similar to many Bollywood Films like the Classic Sholay. Karma is still a good version packed with comedy and action. Dilip Kumar gives a great performance and is Bollywoods Best Actor before Amitabh took over in the early 70s. Jackie Shroff is OK, but not as good as his performance in Hero and Allah Rakha. Anil Kapoor provides most of the comedy in a superb performance. Naseerudin Shah is the silent Hero in a average performance. Sridevi is my old time favourite actress in a good performance. Poonam has a small role. Anupom Kher delivers his greatest Villain role as the bollywood baddie icon Deng.
