Best Film of Summer 1999
15 October 1999 | by (Bradford, England) – See all my reviews

Ever since I saw the trailers heralding the release of Shah Rukh Khan's new film, Baadshah, I was captivated. Great music from the title song, combined with a glimpse of the beautiful stranger, Twinkle Khanna.

When the film finally released, it lived up to every expectation. Feet tapping music, with hilarious scenes, and suspenseful drama, that can be compared to the mood of Bazigar. Although the film is clichéd with the appearance of a young child, the stunning Twinkle makes up for it.

Shah Rukh, as always, is on top form; his previous work has perfectly moulded him for the role Baadshah, playing both the hero and joker.

Twinkle Khanna, some have criticised her as being OK for her role, yet I disagree, she's fantastic, giving an aura of mystery and glamour in every scene.

The rest of the cast blend perfectly with the story, with the villains having evil and humorous characteristics.

It is a family film, however, towards the end as the plot thickens the children might be confused as to what is happening.

I think this film deserves 8/10, go and watch it!
