Commendable remake!
15 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was watching 'Suraksha' (again) and then something prompted me to check earlier filmography of Mithunda. This is when I came across 'Dhuaan' and the one liner wiki plot info saying that it's a thriller made me curious to give it a try. And now I think, how could I possibly miss this movie?!

Plot: Okay, I have read in other reviews that it is a remake of a British movie. But I must say that this indeed is a commendable Indianised remake. From beginning till the very last scene plot keeps you on your toes with out giving away even a hint for the climax.

Music: It was okay. Intro and two songs with Ashok and Sheela are very well placed with the narration. Bhajan was alright. One song seemed to be chopped off in the YT version. CORRECTION: I tried hard to find this missing song. Unfortunately, as this movie is B-grade as per 80's standard, there is hardly any information available. However, still with great difficulty I could verify that there was no missing song. In fact, movie contains just 4 songs, which are already shown in the YT version.

Characters: Introduction of characters as well as suspense was good. In fact, reactions of all characters to every new twists are quite realistic. Most appreciable of all was the intelligent presentation of Sheela. I liked it when she first recognized Hasimbhai and later the doctor. In both the scenes her confusion and reaction to new realizations were quite evident.

NEW ADDITION-Stunts: While discussing with a friend, I realized that I did not mention any thing about the quality of stunts/action. Definitely, stunts are sloppy. In fact, racing-demo defies basic Physics principles which even a non-science major understands. However, this does not mars the performances of the actors. Sloppiness in the stunt- quality is accredited to the production house. Given that it was not a big banner film, they seem to be limited on financial front, costing the stunt quality.

Over all, as mentioned in one of the above reviews, definitely this movie was made ahead of time. When compared to present time, it is definitely something interesting like 'Kahaani'. So overall I would say, indeed a must watch!!
