Powerful and Brilliant
18 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Tezaab, with the tag line a Violent Love Story. Tells the story of Anil Kapoor and his life. He goes through a series of serious incidents which causes him Tezaab. As the title suggests, Tezaab means Acid, as in the burning acid in Anils heart. Anil Kapoor in a award winning role gives a Brilliant performance. Madhuri Dixit looks sexier then ever in a great performance. Chunkey Pandey provides plenty of humour with sidekicks like Johnny Lever in a younger role. Chunkey gives his best performance I've seen till the 2005 release D. Mandakini is there for 10 minutes and looks sexy as usual. The supporting Cast give good performances including Anupom Kher and Kiran Kumar. Tezaab has the famous dance song Ek Do Teen, that made Madhuri more popular in her sexy dance. Madhuri looks stunning in the song, but looks more sexier in Khal Nayak - Choli ke peeche. Tezaab is a great movie that is worth the watch.
