Recommended only for Devanand's fans
28 September 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Devanand seems to have taken inspiration from his 1954 landmark film "Taxidriver" for making this film. Unfortunately, this film does not deliver. Devanand, now growing old, plays his role with style and panache(though it's difficult to see him romancing a younger Hema Malini). The plot is nothing much to talk about and the action scenes are poorly choreographed(Again, Devanand was a chocolate hero in his heydays. The action scenes were less suited to him). Songs are dime a dozen and none apart from the title songs is worth listenable.

Devanand's film output decreased in quality as he headed toward the 70s and 80s and this is one example of that. Still, for Devanand fans, he still has that mannerisms which endeared him to people's hearts.

Worth watching only for Devanand.
