Last Nasir Hussian movie
22 January 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Nasir Hussain is known for making family films with long lost brothers, lost families due to circumstances created by the villain and his henchmen. They are known for the illogical action sequences but have a good story. Nasir Hussian is a veteran director known for his super hit films like Yadoon Ki Baarat but Mr.Hussina, your power won't last through the 80's, 90's if you make such melodramatic action films which will work latest in the 70's. This was Hussian's and Deol's second film together after Manzil Manzil which flopped. Sadly, this movie is also declared a flop. The story is nothing new, it is a typical Hussian movie where problems arise because of the bad people, but Deol takes revenge and clears his dad's name from murder. Pretty typical and this is getting old now. Honestly, Manzil Manzil was a flop but I liked it, this movie was a bit of a letdown, yet the suspenses effect is good. Still, Nasir Hussian's journey ends here and he will be no longer making any films.
