Trivia

Amitabh Bachchan was offered to play the role of Mr India but he declined as he was into politics and was not doing many movies. Shekar Kapur wanted Anupam Kher to play the role of Mogambo but then switched to Amrish Puri as he wanted someone who looked scary. See more »

Goofs

There is a continuity error while is talking with Anil Kapoor on the sea beach (time approx 1h38m02s). You will see that Sridevi is wearing a rectangular yellow-white earring. In the next shoot the earring is replaced by a circular yellow earring. See more »

Excellent
11 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Mugambo Kush Hua (Mugambo is pleased," is the famous line that was repeated several times by the late Amrish Puri in this 1980's classic movie. The movie stars Anil Kapoor as "Mr India," who can turn invisible when he needs to fight against the villain, Mugambo, but has to be very careful of "red light" at all times, Sri Devi as journalist who believes that Mr India exists and tries to find him, Satish Kaushik, as Anil Kapoor's friend "Calendar," who helps him to look after a bunch of orphaned children, one of which is none other than Aftab Shivdasani, now a Bollywood heartthrob. The movie itself is a science fiction, which was first for its type from Bollywood and what has made it even more memorable was the special effects used by the director, Boney Kapoor. The songs and the music are also very memorable and especially: "Hum Karte Hai Pyar Mr. India Se (I Love Mr India), "Hawa Hawaii," and not to mention the seductive song by the late Kishore Kumar, "I Love You," which enabled him to receive a film fare award for the best song.

Conclusion: Excellent movie which can be enjoyed with your family. Watchout for the re - make of this movie.
