Underworld, Romance, Music- all packed in the same train
7 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Thakshak is basically over 2 and a half hours of Drama + Romance + Music + Some action as topping .

The film is watchable but perhaps only once.

Story is about a local goon who works for an underworld don and owes allegiance to his wayward son as his father and the don would be friends. thus taking part in all the latter's illegal activities. Things take a turn when his loved ones and innocent people get affected and soon he has to battle his conscience and work.

The good - The acting , the storyline, the action sequences, the music

The bad- the film drags at many laces. They have tried to fit in as may song sequences as possible withing the time frame, so songs keep coming up between scenes when there is no "Indication" for them. And also the editing is not continuous and smooth. But this is an issue with MOST Bollywood films of the 90's.

Moral of this film : 1.Never join hands with criminals and outlaws. 2.Never try to advice or argue with alcoholics and drug addicts
