Protect yourself from this Hifazat!
15 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Hifazat is a typical 1980s masala movie which has drama, melodrama, action and romance, and pretty much everything in it is senseless, beyond any logic, and based on coincidences. The movie does bring a few laughs here and there, but in most parts it is unintentionally funny rather than witty and humorous. The film stars Anil Kapoor and he does fairly well with what his role allows him to do. Madhuri Dixit is natural and amazingly beautiful. Pran is okay as Thakur. The queen of acting, Nutan, is given a silly role of a typical victimised and suffering woman, which is a true insult to an actress of her calibre, although she herself does well in whatever she is given. The supporting cast has more caricatures than real characters. Bindu, Shakti Kapoor, Gulshan Grover and Kader Khan are all examples of that, although I personally always like Bindu and Kader Khan no matter what they're doing and in this one Khan was quite funny as always. The film's music is the saving grace of the film, well that is to be expected when the music director is R.D Burman. "Mohabbat Kya Hai" is a beautiful song. However, there is one song called "Batata Vada" which I found really pathetic and bizarrely choreographed. It really got on my nerves. The film's ending is contrived and was predictable from the beginning. Hifazat is just another of the many awful movies the Hindi film industry used to make at that time.
