Chiru at his peak...
11 May 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

It's a typical masala movie, of course. But the movie wins solely because of Chiranjeevi, who at that time was the highest paid actor in India. ( He was getting Rs/- 1.25 crores per movie, compared to Rajani Kanth's 1 crore and Amitabh's 75 lakhs.) By 1992, Chiru had a successful run at the top of Tollywood for ten glorious years. Un-opposed, un-challenged he had ruled the Telugu Marquee for a decade and especially in the last couple years before this movie got released, he had gone from strength to strength.

So, it was with this background Chiru went back to the Hindi audiences with his second movie. His swagger, his demeanor oozed supreme confidence and Aaj ka Goonda Raaj hit bull's eye, more so because of this than anything else.

His dance for the number "No one can dance with me, no one can take a chance with me," set the Bombay dance clubs on fire for more than a year after the movie hit the screen. It was the most popular dance number in all the parties that year too.

If for nothing else, the movie is worth watching for this song alone. And it's a treat to Chiru's fans, when he utters the lines, "Mujh saa na koyi yahaan," with an attitude almost bordering on arrogance. It it tough not to agree with him...
