Truly miserable
2 January 2001 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Drohkaal is perhaps the worst non-American movie I've ever seen. It would be bad at two hours but at three it was miserable. Long, boring scenes of the protagonist's happy family life juxtaposed with violent episodes as predictable as they are bloody. Don't be fooled by the somewhat intriguing subject matter (terrorist movement in Northern India), Drohkaal isn't even good as an action movie.
