Fantastic Thriller!
23 April 2007 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

This was probably Dev Anands last sane movie. He went flat out into loud, vulgar 70s mode after Bullet. A real pity because Dev saab was & is a great actor. Dev had long been the king of the thriller genre & Bullet adds a notable feather to his well decorated cap.

He plays CID officer Dharam Dev hot on the heels of DP ( Kabir Bedi). DP realising Devs on his case frames him on a drunken driving

case.

On Devs release from jail he sets off on DPs chase with even more gusto only for DP to frame him on a Kidnapp/Murder charge.

With all clues leading to Dev, he must convince his junior officer Rakesh Roshan of his innocence & of Dps guilt.

Dev Anand was at his very best, calm & restrained. Bedi is suave & charming as the villain, probably his best bollywood role. Parveen Babi as Devs girlfriend looks gorgeous whilst Rakesh Roshan plays his part well.

This was amongst the best movies of the 70s & a must for bollywood 70s afficionados!
