Entertaining.....
4 December 2013 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Betaab" was a big box office hit of 80s, which launched a new star in Bollywood, Sunny Deol. Well, story-wise, there is nothing new in this film. Heroine comes from a very affluent family and hero is poor. The rich father of the heroine declines their relationship and starts tormenting the hero. There are villains, a loyal maid, a loyal dog, and a final fight sequence after which the lovers meet and the villains are punished. Perhaps, you have seen the same story for hundreds of times in Hindi movies. But it still works in this film which is still entertaining and refreshing to watch. The stunts, music, good photography, and freshness of the stars still make it entertaining though not very memorable.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
