Amitabh's bad days
17 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In the late 80's Amitabh started loosing his power only to regain it back later though

But he did some hedious mistakes like TOOFAN, JAADUGAR(1989) For some reason Amitabh started signing supernatural films like TOOFAN, JAADUGAR The movie is typical MDK type film with long lost brothers, lot of nonsense and also actors like Goga Kapoor, Raza Murad.etc

The film is a crap beyond imagination the comedy scenes are too bad while the ones involving Toofan are boring Even the climax is crap

Direction by Ketan Desai is awful Music is okay

Amitabh overdoes as the Jaadugar and is okay as TOOFAN but he looked too old and wrinkles shown and he looked out of shape Amrita Singh is okay Meenaxi is adequate, Sushma Seth is okay Amongst rest Goga Kapoor, Raza Murad and others are as usual
