A uniquely excellent Dharmendra movie, this is Bollywood at it's best!
31 December 2002 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for a good night in, a boast, or maybe just a good larf, this is THE movie for you! All age groups will love it and you'd want to watch it over and over. Dharmendra and Hema do an excellant performance (whilst maintaining their passion) and a little appearance from Shammi Kapoor livins up the film abit. The film starts off with a little 'Mask Of Zorro' style genre, Dharmendra is dressed in a cape and sets off to save a young girl. Dharmendra is a mischevious lad in this film who is living with his bhabee. His name is Ashok (Azaad) and goes around villages helping others and giving little 'freddom speeches' while creating havok. He then comes across a princess (Hema Malini) who has set a farm on fire, Dharmendra beats up the princesses guards which leads to his bhabee leaving. Instead Dharmendra leaves and reaches his bhabee's brother's house where he lives with his sister. He soon realises he's in the region of the princess (Hema) and a little hilarious intro starts his stay off. He finds a job at a beer factory which is owned by Hema, but this is just a plan for her to get her own back, and so she does by making Dharmendra ride a drunken horse (without him knowing), but Dharmendra returns and captures the princess and makes her live like a tramp but being clever Hema chucks him into a well. To get a taste of her own medicine she is pounced upon by a tiger but Dharmendra saves her, they fall in love. The film goes on to show other plots but that would be destroying the fun for you, you have to see it to have loads of laughs! My fav parts are the beginning (Dharmendra dressed like Zorro), Dharmendra swinging through the tress while singing to 'Mein Azaad' and Dharmendra rading the princesses camp before kidnapping her (alot of laughs in this part). Trust me you'll enjoy this one, excellent and enjoyable for all the family!
