Storyline

American-returned Shankar Narayan is baffled to witness his former businessman and jailbird dad posing as a soothsayer by the name of Mahaprabhu Janak Sagar Jagat Narayan in a small town called Dharampur. He comes to know that his dad has learned a few magician's tricks from a fellow-inmate, and is able to fool the entire township with his "divine" powers. Shankar enlists the assistance of noted magician Goga, and brings him to Dharampur. Goga challenges the Mahaprabhu; is able to dethrone him; oust him from his temple, and takes over. His task over, Shankar asks Goga to leave, but power-hungry Goga, who now calls himself Gogeshwar, refuses to let go of his new-found position. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

When the film was complete and ready for release, Prakash Mehra and Amitabh Bachchan had a fallout. Prakash Mehra felt cheated that Amitabh should have informed him about the magician's role he was doing in Toofan (1989). He requested Amitabh for two weeks of shooting, so that he could change Jadugar a bit before its release,but Amitabh Bachchan refused. See more »

A classic stink!
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic example of the terrible movies Amitabh acted in late 80's. Really childish, overacted and long movie. About the only thing notable about this movie is the title song sung by Kumar Sanu marks his entry in Hindi movie industry in a big way (he had a couple of stints before it.)

If you liked "Shahenshah" there is a chance you might like this movie. Songs are so-so, acting is mediocre. There is too much silly/bad Amitabh in this movie even for an Amitabh fan like me. I watched this movie in theater when it came out and had to force myself to stay in there only because I had paid 7 bucks to watch it.
