A Subhash Ghai classic
7 April 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

One of Bollywood's classics from the apt hands of Subhash Ghai, 'Ram Lakhan' tells the tale of two brothers Ram and Lakhan. Typical to its masala-based Bollywood style entertainment this movie has it all - romance, action, revenge, emotional quotient, music (a major plus point for Ghai for roping in seasoned Laxmikant Pyarelal duo) and the very vital entertainment factor that worked so well back then and still does.

Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor give extremely competent performances cast opposite Dimple Kapadia and Madhuri Dixit respectively. Rakhee Gulzar plays the mother who waits eagerly to avenge her husband's unjust death. A complete family entertainer, 'Ram Lakhan' is a Subhash Ghai classic.

A must watch.
