Storyline

Widowed Madan Chopra lives a very wealthy lifestyle with two daughters, Seema and Priya. His passion is racing, and realizing that he is not young anymore, has his last race and wins - only to find out that another competitor, Vicky Malhotra, let him win. Madan befriends Vicky, introduces him to Priya and invites him to work for him in Bombay. Vicky and Priya are attracted to each other, much to Madan's delight and he announces their marriage. Before that could happen, Seema kills herself by throwing herself down from the roof of a multi-storied building. While Madan wants to close this case due to embarrassment, Seema meets with her college friend, Police Inspector Karan, and together they begin to unravel a plot that may well end Madan and the lives of others as well.

One of my most favourite films
22 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Films like Mother India, Sholay and Lagaan may be the greatest Bollywood movies of all time and I agree that they are but Baazigar is also included in my list. It was the first Shah Rukh Khan film I've seen and that is how I liked him and I still do although he played a villain in the film. Baazigar is the most intelligent revenge thriller I have ever seen even comparing to any Hollywood movie because it is directed by Abbas-Mustan and no one makes better thrillers than them. They are simply one of my most favourite directors and I have always liked their films they are completely unforgettable like Daraar, Ajnabee, Humraaz, Aitraaz, 36 China Town and Naqaab.

The story is beyond fantastic about Ajay (Shah Rukh Khan) who steals the hearts of Seema (Shilpa Shetty) and Priya (Kajol) the daughters of his greatest enemy Madan Chopra (Dilip Tahil). Years ago Madan Chopra snatched away Ajay's family business and property. Now Ajay is grown up and has come back to avenge the death of his father and baby sister. But Ajay didn't plan on falling in love with one of chopra's daughters. Will he forsake all for his love? Or will he forsake his love for the sake of his family? This blockbuster hit will definitely keep you riveted to your seat. It is simply SRH's and Abbas-Mustan's best film ever. Shilpa Shetty was introduced but also SRK and Kajol have appeared for the first time together and they are a landmark couple of Bollywood. The movie also has excellent comedy mainly by Johnny Lever that is still funny. I have seen it more times than any other film and is about 15 years old and I still love it. Music is also good and the best songs are Baazigar oh Baazigar & Yeh Kali Kali Aankhen.
