Storyline

This is a story of Ajooba, the masked legend, who was treated as the only protector of the people of Baharistan. Ajooba is none other than Ali, the real heir to the kingdom of Baharistan. Unfortunately for Ali, when he was just born, his father and mother were overthrown by the evil designs of the Vazir. Ali survived as destined and was brought up by a blacksmith who was unaware of Ali's real identity. In the guise of Ajooba, Ali takes up the very difficult task of finding his lost parents and then to re-instate them to the throne with great honour. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Truly a Great Classic
10 April 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Ajooba is actually one of the only good Indian movies ever. My brother and I had watched this movie when we were very little and still enjoy its classic and very adventurous themes. The acting in Ajooba is like that of most 1990's Indian movie (maybe better). An up-side to this classic is that it stars many well known and good Indian actors such as Amitab Bachan. The one thing that attracted me to the movie was an outstanding setting in a desert; making it relate to the old "Arabian" tales such as Aladdin which are recognized world-wide for their adventure, love, and humor. The theme of a betrayed pure good fighting ruthless bad catches my eyes as one of the many beauties of Ajooba. Although it maybe lagging in FX (c'mon, 1991), it is a story, that if understood, catches the hearts and ears of its viewers.
