Just watch once
21 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A harsh movie. That's how I'd describe Droh Kaal.

I watched this only recently simply out of curiosity. I remember watching Kamal Hassan's Drohi some 15 years ago, and I feel the original Droh Kaal is definitely better.

It is an unconventional film revolving around cops who fight terrorism and terrorists who take advantage of the corrupt system into manipulating the law.

Acting is good on part of the actors. The best actor is perhaps none other than Om puri.Film is draggy at times. THERE ARE NO SONGS AT ALL. This film is not suited for kids for the violence and some explicit scenes. And no one can watch it more than once.
