I understand that this film was later remade as "Krodh." Well, the two films don't have much in common, except for the wonderful Rambha and a main character referred to as "Hitler" because he's perceived as nasty.
The 1997 Hitler, however, is not such a bad guy...he's strict with his family and doesn't communicate well, but other than that he doesn't really DESERVE to be called "Hitler." Admittedly, I saw this film without subtitles so maybe I missed something...
After a shakey start, this film was a lot of fun. The was fantastic, and Johny Lever may have even been funny. It's hard to tell. The villain was particularly villainous and creepy -- those glasses! -- and the plot had a fair share of complexity and suspense. The best part of this film for me, however, were the songs: fantastic, lilting, full of odd touches (crowing roosters, sampled exclamations, and a brief reference to Mithun's earlier film "Disco Dancer" that will leave you stunned and confused).
All in all, force yourself through the first hour, and you will be rewarded!
