Nana Patekar rules, I tell u !!!
8 July 2000 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

OK, there is a fairly common plotline here, elevated by some intellegent dialogues and the topic of Hindu-Muslim riots in India (which were in the news then, related to the desecration of Babri mosque in India), and punctuated by the usual Indian song-and-dance numbers. Mamta looks sexy, Agnihotri looks the part of her doe-eyed lover, Paresh Rawal stretches his acting abilities and Danny is... well, the villain. Dimple is great as usual, but the real item here is Nana, who blazes across the screen (he got a Best Actor award for this), mesmerizing the viewer. Take him out, and this is yet another Indian potboiler about politics, crime, romance and bloodshed.

Long after u forget the rest of the film, u will still remember all the scenes related to Nana. In fact, the director could have made the film more focused and gripping by taking out all the silly songs and sub-plots (even though i'm a bit partial to sexy rain songs featuring starlets like Mamta, they do seem to be out of place here). Like Pacino and De Niro, Nana Patekar's acting leaves u breathless and begging for more. If u r a fan of his, this is not to be missed. If u haven't seen any of his flicks yet, this is a FINE place to get started.

Rating: 8/10
