Superb!
27 March 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

1993's Biggest Box Office Hit, 'Aankhen' is a Superb film! Though I had seen it ages back, but, even today, the film manages to hold my attention. David Dhawan directs this Out-And-Out Time-Pass fare nicely, while the performances are memorable.

'Aankhen' tells the story of Two wealthy good-for-nothing kids, Munnu and Bunnu, played by Govinda & Chunky Pandey, who, get involved in a conspiracy to replace a Chief Minister with a lookalike by some corrupt government officials.

It's an entertaining film. In fact, the first hour is full of hilarious moments. The second hour becomes intense, but the interest remains alive in it's viewer. David Dhawan knows his job, and he proves it once again. Music by the legendary Bappi Lahiri, is foot-tapping.

Performance-Wise: Govinda is absolutely fantastic. He plays both the roles with unseen ease. Chunky Pandey does a good job. Raj Babbar is excellent. Kader Khan, Bindu & Sadashiv Amrapurkar, stand out. Shakti Kapoor shines. Gulshan Grover leaves a mark. Shilpa Shirodkar, Raageshwari & Ritu Shivpuri are passable.

On the whole, A Must Watch for those who enjoy Entertaining Cinema, where anything can happen. Two Thumbs Up!
