production of a 'Soldier' Bobby Deol
9 October 2007 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

Abbas-Mustan's first combination with Bobby Deol proved a good result as the movie did quiet well in the box-office in 1998 as a musical thriller. Moreover this was the only movie which competed enough with another romantic blockbuster Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (released one month earlier to Soldier) both in box-office and in musical score. This technically advanced movie changed the views and appetite of watching action movies in the Bollywood industry in many ways. The director duo know very well to use the hidden talent of Bobby Deol for action movies. Before this, his last hit was Gupt-The Hidden Truth that was released almost a year earlier. Soldier is basically a story about a boy taking revenge against the culprits who killed his father when he was small. He prepared himself well and step by step he fulfilled his desire to revenge the murderer of his father. The location and sceneries of Australia and New Zealand in the movie are highly aesthetic and worth watching. Lastly, Soldier showed that India also can produce such highly technically advanced movies with its own systems and processes.
