Flop
24 December 2011 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

N Chandra who made hits like 1986 blockbuster Ankush also in the early 90's made his biggest crap. Narsimha was a flop and this was Deol and Chandra's only movie together. Anyways, Narsimha has an interesting start, the settle of problems, the tension of poor people is well shown. Even the intro of Narsimha is well shown until a point where there is only overacting and the way Baapji(Om Puri) delivers his dialogues is stupid. But, Sunny Deol in his bad movies also acts well and even heroines do the same. Dimple Kapadia is really good in this movie and shines with Sunny Deol always. But, the script is so weak and the direction is bottom class which makes our actors acting down. But, the action is still good. I don't have anything against violence but honestly this movie was violent. The way they scared the mom with a dead bird was violent. Also the ending where the clock arm stabs Baapji is retarted and truly violent. The biggest mistake is the use of violence. N Chandra is famous for violence as shown in Ankush which was still good. But, this movie crosses the limit making it bad. Acting is top class, action is average(violence is not good always), songs are bad, editing is just again average but not as bad as Shankara which was Sunny's second crap in 1991 after Yodha which was also crap. Overall, another average movie which flops and nowadays public will never watch this movie.
