Trivia

The movie was announced in 1987, but Amitabh Bachchan did not commit any dates for its shooting. During that period Amitabh attended a party in which Prakash Mehra was also present. Prakash Mehra got drunk and blasted Amitabh in front of entire film industry for not giving preference to Jadugar. Prakash Mehra said Amitabh has forgotten how he was the one that gave Amitabh Bachchan a break in Zanjeer (1973) etc. Everybody thought that after this incident Mr Mehra can forget about Jadugar. But after the party Amitabh went home and picked up his phone.He dialed Praksh Mehra no and said, "who said I'm not doing your Jadugar? Just count me in on it." See more »

No Jaadu! (Magician without Magic)
17 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Bad script! Bad Direction! Things gone haywire!

Prakash Mehra and Amitabh Bachchan made a very good pair in past. Great entertainment in history. The movie could have been a good one, considering it had a novel theme. A Fake Godman (Amrish Puri) exposed and in turn defeated by a magician (Amitabh Bachchan) in his own game! The icing was the magician is brought to game by none other than the son of the Godman (Aditya Pancholi).

But the script was lost, at times songs and dialogue become vulgure. Acting is average and the movie, it appears was made only for the front benchers, and was perhaps even rejected by them.

There are some shades of past brillience, on screen its not worth, but on vedio / DVD - thanks to technology - we can fast forward what we don't like. This movie perhaps can be watched in double quick time.
