Tridev- An explosive saga
27 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have extremely fond memories of this classic. Out of Naseer Udin Shah, Sunny Deol and Jackie Shroff it was Sunny Deol that stood out as the angry cop Karan Saxena. Amrish Puri was superb as Bhujang in one of my favourite roles of his. There was also so many other characters, including Anupum Kher as the devoted Pollice commissioner. The music is so good it deserves a special mention. My personal Favourite is Oye Oye.

The director Rajiv Rai went on to make other great movie including the superb follow up Vishwatamma, Mohra and the suspense thriller Gupt. Unfortunately he has hit a rough patch with this recent releases Pyar Ishq and Mohabbat and Asambhav flopping. Rajiv Rai has a reputation for repeating his cast, Sunny Deol came in Tridev and its follow up whilst Naseer Uddin Shah starred in Tridev, Vishwatamma and Mohra.Character actors like Tej Sapru have appeared in almost all of his movies. Tremendous fun.
