Overdone and melodramatic
25 March 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Indra Kumar earlier films were damn melodramatic but some had good stories like BETA(1992)

Those days films were melodramatic with too loud background music thundering, lightning Another aspect of Indra Kumar was that first half would go with light moments, song.etc mostly and the drama would take place in second half

RAJA too is one of those films The story is implausible and the first half has several stupid comic scenes and too many songs The bonding between Sanjay and Paresh is good and also the love story is okay The entire twist in the story is well handled and the conflict is well done but then the entire end is stupid with Dalip Tahil almost killing Madhuri and then suddenly Sanjay from hospital reaching to save her The last scenes are stupidity

Indra Kumar does an average job Music is hit variety, especially Ankhiya and Nazrein which were damn popular

Sanjay Kapoor has big brother Anil's hangover in acting and it shows but he is decent though too his expressions were too much in many scenes This is his only solo big hit Madhuri is as usual Amongst others Mukesh Khanna hams like no tomorrow, Dalip Tahil is as usual Paresh Rawal steals the show with a flawless performance
