Bollywood Commercial Potboiler from the 1980s
23 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Pasha(Danny Denzongpa)is a criminal who has entrapped the jailer's(Pran)sister in his false love.When jailer comes to know about his sister's love with a criminal,he orders her to leave his home.After some days,she comes back to his brother with her new-born baby and passes away.

Now,Pasha kidnaps the jailer's son Ashok and teaches him each and every trick of theft.Pasha wants to take revenge from the jailer because once he had put him into jail.Pasha renames Ashok as Suraj(Sunny Deol)and makes him a very big thief.

Many years pass by.Now,Suraj is a youngster.One day,Suraj happens to meet Aarti(Neelam),who runs an NGO to help poor and needy people.Suraj falls in love with Aarti.Now comes Inspector Vijay(Chunky Pandey)into picture.He also loves Aarti.But Aarti has already fallen in love with Suraj.Vijay tells Aarti about Suraj's bad practices.But,somehow,Suraj manages to convince her and promises that he will leave all these bad practices.Vijay always confronts Suraj and warns him to be away from Aarti.

The performances of the actors is good.Sunny Deol & Pran excel in their respective roles.Danny Denzongpa has done full justice with his villainous role.Neelam looks good & acts well.But,the show stealer according to me(it's my personal opinion)is Chunky Pandey.His dialogue delivery is good and he gives good competition to Sunny Deol in this film.Although,when this film had released in 1988,Chunky Pandey was relatively a newcomer.But,even then,he excelled in his role of Inspector Vijay.The confrontation scenes between Sunny Deol & Chunky Pandey are good. Other actors like Paintal & Shakti Kapoor have done well in their respective roles.

Dialogs of this film are good. Music is okay.A couple of songs are good.Main tera tota & Chori Chori yun jab are great songs.

Will Pasha allow Suraj to leave him? Will the jailer be able to capture Pasha and his gang? Who will marry Aarti?Suraj or Vijay?

To find out,watch Paap ki Duniya(1988). It's not a great movie,but it's not that bad either.

My Rating 7/10.
