The Overlooked Masterpiece
2 September 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Every now and then a film comes along which fails to make its place in the hearts of the audience regardless of its quality, substance, or style. One of Amitabh Bachchan's most underrated films, "Indrajeet", is such a film. "Indrajeet" tells the story of a police officer who struggles to build a house and home for his daughter (played by Neelam) all the while dealing with his own losses in life. When demons from his past come back to tear his dreams to shreds, Indrajeet turns to the very law which he once served for support and equity. When he is thrown aside and belabored by the corrupt officials of the system, he decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. Unlike many films which deal with political injustices, "Indrajeet" does not tread into the realms of the unbelievable or unpalatable. Amitabh proves once again why he is still today regarded as the all-time "Shahenshah" (king) of Indian cinema. A 9.5 to this unjustly overlooked classic!
