Based On The Novel "The Bourne Identity"
31 December 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Avinash Directed By Umesh Mehra is An Action Thriller Drama. Direction is Brilliant. Movie is Based On Novel The Bourne Identity By Robert Ludlum. Script & Screenplay Are Well Written. Plot is Similar To The Bourne Identity With Few Changes. Action & Dialogues Are Good. Editing Could Have Been Better.

Pratap(Prem Chopra) Does Anti National Activities With The Help Of Sam(Tom Alter). He is Again Ready With A Plan To Damage The Nation. While He Explains The Plan, It Gets Recorded & Clip is With Babu, His Chopper Pilot. Pratap Gets To Know About The Clip. After Being Injured By The Goons Of Pratap,Babu Dies in Front Of Avinash (Mithun Chakraborty). Pratap Feels That Avinash Has The Clip.

Avinash is A Musician As Well As Petty Thief.He Lives With His Mother(Sulabha Arya) & Younger Brother Sumit(Ravi Behl). Sapna (Poonam Dhillon) is Fiancé Of Avinash. Pratap in Search Of Clip Reaches Avinash House. His Mother Gets Killed, While Sapna & Sumit Get Injured. Avinash is Beaten To Death But He Has No Idea Of The Clip. They Threw Him In The Open Sea.

He is Picked Up By Fishermen, Dr Anand(Sudhir Dalvi) Operates Him. He Also Finds He is Suffering From Amnesia, Apparently As A Result Of A Traumatic Head Injury. Avinash is Now In Search Of His Own Identity. While Others Are in Search Of Avinash When They Realize He Is Still Alive.

Acting By Mithun is Brilliant. Poonam Dhillon Does Well In Few Scenes. Parveen Babi Has Only Few Scenes Which Were Retained When She Left The Movie To Move USA. Bindiya Goswami & Sujit Kumar Are Well Written Characters. Prem Chopra is As Usual.

Music is Average. "Jaaga Soya Pyar Mera" By Kishore & Anupama Deshpande is Beautiful Romantic Track Which Has Two Version is Best Of The Lot.

Even Though The Movie Was Delayed By Years . It Did Well. Must Watch For Mithun & Thriller Movie Fans.
