Mr India- Salim- Javed's last classic
24 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie was a firm childhood favourite of mine and it still hasn't lost its magic. This was the movie that sent Anil Kapoor into stardom and the pairing of Anil Kapoor and Sridevi was used in other movies. The scripting was absolutely perfect, the songs were brilliant (my favourite was Hawaa Hawaii) and add to a mammoth budget and you have a bollywood classic.

This is essentially a kids film, which is a market rarely catered to in Bollywood. Amrish Puri gave the performance of a lifetime( who can forget his Mogambo Khush Hus dialogue). There are many other memorable characters, like for instance Sridevi's boss or Mogambo's henchman Goga and Daga. This movie ranks amongst other Salim Javed's best work, for instance Sholay and Shaan. Tremendous fun from start to finish.
