Another highly watchable suspense thriller by B.R. Chopra
22 August 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Having seen several of B.R. Chopra's movies, I can see he was very interested in making movies of this sort. Dhund is another murder mystery cum courtroom drama made by him, and he does it well. There's nothing particularly surprising about the way it is made, and while watching I actually waited for some unexpected twists which would turn the film upside down. Having said that, this is definitely not a bad thing because overall Dhund is interesting and very well scripted. At times I was very impressed by how taut it was, and even though it is well contrived, it does not look like that at all and is thoroughly intriguing. The movie is by no means flawless, but why should one care about that as long as it provides entertainment and is interesting to watch? During the courtroom scenes, which were presented with a great share of humour, I tried to figure if they were intended to be comic or dramatic, but they still were effective. The film stars several famous actors, and all of them do well. Those who impressed me the most are Madan Puri, Sanjay Khan, and Navin Nischol, who turned in greatly restrained performances. Zeenat Aman is a good choice for this part, and although it's not demanding, she is amazingly beautiful and attractive. Danny Denzongpa was a bit annoying and over-the-top but then he was supposed to be a hot-tempered type and it's okay, although I felt it could have been a bit reduced. Ashok Kumar is wonderful in a special appearance as the sharp lawyer, and Deven Varma also gives a noteworthy comic performance as the servant of the house. The film's music was not very necessary for the film, although the songs came in appropriate portions. I wish Chopra had stuck to what he did in Kanoon, which is known to be the first songless Hindi film. Anyway, I enjoyed watching Dhund, and I definitely recommend it for lovers of Hindi films.
