Anil Kapoor at his very best!
15 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

One of the many 'career' defining roles from Anil Kapoor and one of the best in hindi cinema in general... The movie was supposed to be directed by Raj Kapoor to start with, but the moment never came as the Raj Kapoorji passed away... But the great K Viswanath(the one who directed the original Swathi Muthayam) took over and recreated the magic and delivered a classic! The character of EEshwar was right out of Raj Kapoor's books and as originally perceived by him.Those who have seen the movie would notice the way K Viswanath pays his tribute to Raj Kapoor at the start of the movie just as the R K Films have it. Anil Kapoor once again reminds of Raj Kapoor in this character portrayal, just as he did it with Woh Saat Din...At the same time, the displayed the part of a mentally challenged person as good as anybody has done it before and something which was associated with Sanjeev Kumar(Khilona). The movie is full of classic moments, the best one being the climax where the "tulsi" is what Anil wants to take with him! Great performance by Vijayashanti and she deserves an applause too. good support by Saeed Jaffrey, Gulshan Grover and others.

10 out of 10.
