Trivia

After the success of Naam, the same team, Rajendra Kumar, Mahesh Bhatt and Salim Khan were to make a film titled Naaraz staring Rakhee Gulzar, Kumar Gaurav, Madhuri Dixit,Naseerudin Shah and Amrish Puri, but this film was not made. Mahesh Bhatt, and Amrish Puri never got the chance to work together after both being in the same industry for decades. Naraaz was shelved. Years later Mahesh Bhatt made another film titled Naaraaz with a different star cast and story. See more »

Angry? Of course!
9 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are wondering if you have ever come across this flop movie before, let me remind you, it was during the 'hey days' of Mahesh Bhatt and he made several and I mean several films in one year. Not saying that every flop film of Bhatt's is bad, but this one maybe deserved it. Bhatt made some real neat films in the these days, and I salute the director for his dedication to the industry. Maybe for money or for passion? He use to work five or may six films at one time (most of the time his assitants would cover for him) Who knows why he made so many. Back to the film, Naaraaz happens to be Mahesh's weakest during the 90's. Why did I watch the film? The film happens to include one of my favourite songs of all time, so I felt I will give it a try for the song.

Why does the film fail? The film is rehash or remake of his earlier hit Naam, where two brothers/friends are separated in different countries due to circumstances and one begins to make is life from crime as he feels low in his own eyes. Only difference here is that one is rich and the other poor while in Naam it was two brothers from the same household.

The title itself shows the character of Deva who is angry with the world altogether, angry because he never got an education or even angry at his poverty, hence he wants to make his own life. The script could have been much a better considering the cast and the visuals, because they both are fantastic. The film has been made very well and directed well too, some of the scenes you can tell the producers have spent well money on. Some scenes really work wonder too, like:

Mithun and Atul's clash abroad. Mithun expresses his feelings to Pooja. Mithun's last fight at the haveli.

Mithun does well, he makes the film worth the watch for sure, as you can see, all the scenes belong to him too. Atul Agnihorti gives decent support. Pooja Bhatt is good. Sonali Bendre is okay. The songs are excellent, just two songs like 'Tumhe Hum Kya Samjh' and 'Sambala Hai Maine' just make the whole film.

Overall, a pointless remake of Naam. Bhatt could have picked a better script and made another film with the same cast and maybe even the same title, while the producers seem to have invested quite a bit in the movie too. Bad is the word. The film works for two reasons, Mithun and one of my favourite songs 'Tumhe Hum Kya Samjh'.

2 out 5

Wish he could have done better!
