"Mogambo Khush Hua" is the signature line of the villain Mogambo played by Amrish Puri in the classic "Mr. India". I must say, Mogambo is a kind of villain which will remain immortal in every hearts. Amrish Puri displays the act of villainy with perfection. He shows the required amount of menace and that helps to make his character a classic. Apparently, this movie is not about Mogambo. It's about "Mr. India" played by Anil Kapoor who has inherited a magical watch from his father with which he can become invisible. But here, the hero is overshadowed by the villain. Anil Kapoor does his job pretty well and I guess no actor would've been able to pull off that role with aplomb like him. Sridevi is truly the devi of India. Her "Hawa Hawaii" dance number is also the highlight of "Mr. India" and she was also likable as a reporter. Like most of her movies, Sridevi gets her comic timings and the scene where she disguises as Charlie Chaplin is hilarious! "Mr. India" is one of the best movies of Bollywood as it created an immortal villain by the name of Mogambo. Every kid in India is scared of the name "Mogambo" and every mothers use this name to lure their children to sleep in India. What an impression! The only thing I didn't like about this movie is the scene where the little girl dies in a bomb explosion. This scene was unnecessary and made the film quite heavy. Barring this scene, almost all the scenes are memorable and are worth repeat-viewing. I rate it 9/10.
