Pramod Chakravorty's Deedar was supposed to be Akshay Kumar's first release but Saugandh released first and turned out to be a flop. This film was expected to do great business because the promos rocked and the songs were hits but surprisingly, Deedar(1992) failed to make a mark at the box office. Akshay's hope was shattered and he was labelled as a flop actor. Moreover, he couldn't follow up the super success of Khiladi(1992) which released right before Deedar(1992). Furthermore, Akshay Kumar didn't get a hit till Waqt Hamara Hai(1993). In between, there were some okay films like Kayda Kanoon(1993) but they flopped sadly.
Deedar is a typical romantic comedy with action thrown in randomly at places. The film follows on the footsteps of Maine Pyaar Kiya(1989) but it succumbs to mediocrity in parts. The film starts of well and for once Akshay Kumar plays a rich guy who isn't facing too many hardships due to poverty. The love vs. hate relationship between Akshay and Karishma is good at first but it becomes repetitive and boring eventually. Karishma finally falls for Akshay and then the film is boring till the twist in the plot which shocks the audience. The following action scenes and the reason why Karishma couldn't marry Akshay and Akshay's fathers humiliation is all solved at the end. The end is typical but good. However, the film falls flat in front of MPK which was far better.
Direction by Pramod is good in parts and he does give Akshay a big break but I think that Akshay deserves better. He should've deserved a better film instead of this. Saugandh was equally bad but it had good action scenes and Akshay's introduction is very good in that film so it is better than this.
Akshay Kumar is the life of this otherwise boring film. He takes every average scene and lifts it due to his energy. The action scenes are very good. Despite being too raw, Akshay impresses. Karishma Kapoor is good but her shrieking is annoying. The supporting cast do a good job and the acting overall saves a film which would've fallen flat if the acting was bad.
Music is good and the title song was a big hit. It was literally Akshay's first hit song. The rest of the song like Tera Mera Mera Tera Sapna Hai are good too. Action is brilliant because it's realistic and raw like most movies from the 1990s when action wasn't as cheesy as the 80s and the South Remakes of Today.
