A Raaj Kumar show all the way!!!
23 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Police Public is an excellent suspense thriller with excellent star casts to its credit. But I must say, Raaj Kumar stole this show. Every scene with him in it was worth watching. Amazing dialogue delivery coupled with extraordinary body language and expressive eyes makes Raaj Kumar one of the loved stars in Bollywood. The movie made me miss him and his hey days. Wish he was still alive. The rest of the casts are also equally supportive. Prem Chopra and Ajit Vachani are their usual self. Naseeruddin Shah and Kabir Bedi are competitive enough. Poonam Dhillon is good too. The plot moves in a fast pace but too many songs and unwanted comedy scenes slow the proceedings towards the post-interval portions. The movie keeps the viewer guessing till the end. Esmayeel Shroff does an excellent job of keeping the viewer engrossed with a murder mystery. Police Public is a change from the usual masala movies of 1990 and is definitely worth a watch. Don't miss it or you will regret!!!! I give it 9/10.
