Brilliant Entertaining Movie
11 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Kishan Kanhaiyah is a Bollywood Masala Movie. It contains the usual Romance, Comedy, Action and Family Drama. I think this is Anil Kapoor's Finest Work. Anil Kapoor has made many great films such as Parinda, Hifazat, Ram Lakhan, Khel and Tezaab. The female leads were Madhuri Dixit who is no doubt one of Blooywood Best Actresses of the late 80s and 90s. She delivers a comic performance that entertains. The other female lead was the very sexy Shilpa Shirodkar in a more serious role. She does a good job of it. Kishan Kanhaiyah tells the story of two twin brothers, separated at birth. If one gets hurt, the other feels the pain. The movie does have many exciting scenes. It was directed by Rakesh Roshan. The Man behind Great Movies like Khudgarz, Khel, Karan Arjun, Koyla and Koi Mil gaya. This is Rakesh Roshan's simply Best film he has made. Absolute Delight, Highly recommended.
