Fantastic...Entertaining but copy of Jhonny mera naam
16 September 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when i was young, it was a true entertainer. Sanjay dutt it one great actor who could do from action to serious drama and comedy. Jeetendra is not too bad, even though he makes similar movies all the time. The two actresses Madhuri look damn sexy as usual. Jayepradha is not too bad. Thanedaar is a typical olden day bollywood film about the child who witnesses his father get killed and wants revenge. He ends up being separated from his elder brother. This film has enough comedy and action to keep you entertained. A movie with a good director that has made good films in the past. Thanedaar has some good music too especially the tamma tamma song.
