Not only one of Madhuri's best but also Anil's best!
25 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some of the comments I couldn't disagree more. Yes the comedy was dodgy, but in which Hindi movie in that era has the comedy not been dodgy?! 9/10 Hindi movies are far-fetched and this is why we watch them.

Beta could have been better written, but as it is, it isn't written badly. Acting from Anil and Madhuri is A-class, as well as Aruna Irani and Anupam Kher.

Without the class side actors, this movie would have been nothing. One of my best Anil movies of all time..!

Indra Kumar's other movies I really enjoyed was Raja and Ishq, I disliked the others. Mann had potential but still really disappointing from a creative maker like Mr Kumar.
