Bollywood's take on the Corleone family
26 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, the film failed at the box office but which Godfather remake has been successful? A great story like The Godfather hasn't found its takers in Bollywood but none of the remakes are bad (except for the semi-remake Dharmatma). After Zulm Ki Hukumat was released, it could have been that the director of AHA wanted to make his own version. Zulm Ki Hukumat being the best remake of Godfather ever, didn't find may takers at the box office.

AHA was stuck for years and people had already forgot about the film when it released. The film is not a complete clone of The Godfather, but yes, the first half is very similar adding Bollywood flavour to it. It wont be wrong to call it a 'desi adaption' where several subplots were added for the sake of masala. The direction is little tacky, which needed a little tiding up to do. The songs don't make much of an impact at all.

Aamir Khan does pretty well for himself as he didn't play an anti hero role before until it came to Earth and Fanaa. But the evil Aamir in the second half puts a smile on your face, his performance was wonderful. His wig and moustage do look silly. Rajnikant does okay. Juhi Chawla doesn't get much scope. Ishrat Ali is natural. And okay guest appearance by Om Puri and Kabir Bedi, who have just under 10 minutes of screen time but just add a little action

Overall, an okay adaption of Godfather. Considering the time it was made in and the several problems that occurred during its making.
