Mukul S. Anand - A Visionary!
22 April 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Late Filmmaker Mukul S. Anand was A Visionary. Just take a look at his handling over any film he's made. Be it 'Agneepath', 'Main Balwaan' & 'Hum', he has his own vision, which in every manner, is stylish. 'Hum' is one of his best works.

'Hum' is well-written, well-acted & marvelously directed by the late genius. Anand has his stamp all-over the film & emerges a big winner. I loved the film, more so, for the execution Anand has given to this story. Sure, The Screenplay is entertaining, but Anand's work in here stands out! A Special Mention for the fantastic Music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Performance-Wise: Amitabh Bachchan is in his element. Rajinikanth is pretty decent. Govinda is terrific, as always. Kimi Katkar is proficient. Deepa Sahi is fair. Shilpa Shirodkar is passable. Danny is simply spell-binding, while Anupam Kher shows a menacing side of his. Kader Khan is dependable.

On the whole, 'Hum' demands a viewing, thanks to the high-class execution given by Anand.
