Decent pic.....
1 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

You would be shocked to know that this film was a total flop when it was released back in 1990...Dont know why but the film was decent...Anil Kapoor and Hema Malini...both talented actors do their best...Even story line is a good one...might sound bit similar to Beta....but then too its a good film....You surely wont hate this film...Hema jee does her best as villain...Anil kapoor plays a smart guy here...Madhuri doesn't match the standards of Hema and Anil here....Anupam kher and Satish Kaushik try to be comic relief...but they indeed irritate you rather than making you laugh...Shakti kapoor plays a good guy here...might sound strange seeing that out of 300 films he has done...250 films had him as villain...Music is good.......Over all a good film but surely not a masterpiece...A family movie.........
