A Must See For Sunil Shetty Action Fans!!
26 June 2016 | by (Trinidad and Tobago) – See all my reviews

After finally seeing this film almost 20 years later it's release date, I must say it most definitely did not disappoint! The negative reviews written here do not do the film justice.

As a serious Sunil Shetty fan, Rakshak is on par with some of his previous hard hitting action films, the likes of Krishna, Mohra, Takkar & Vinashak.

A great cast with a decent plot & excellent action sequences especially at it's climax.

Although Raveena Tandon only appears in the smash hit song 'Shahar Ki Ladki' & is not cast in the film, enjoyed seeing 3 Bollywood beauties in one film especially Sonali Bendre who plays a doctor (something other than her usual roles of a romantic interest). Karishma Kapoor , Aruna Irani, Alok Nath & Mushtaq Khan are familiar faces which alongside Sunil Shetty's gives the film a good variety in terms of casting.

My first film seeing actor 'Raghuvaran'. Quite refreshing seeing an honest man turned villain being played by an actor other than Gulshan Grover & Amrish Puri.

There are many gruesome criminal acts shown in the film which were difficult to watch. A mature audience is recommended.

Superb soundtrack by Anand-Milind. All hit songs 'Shahar Ki Ladki', 'Kuchi Kuchi' & 'Sundara Sundara' were well shot & choreographed in the film which continues to remain iconically memorable till today.

My first film under the 'Ashok Honda' banner other than the editing done in one of my favorite films of 1994 'Amaanat'. Decent direction that could have been better in some parts, but not too bad as I have seen worst.

My only complaint is the poor quality of the DVD releases of this film which needs to be re-mastered with better video quality & proper English Subtitles.
