Bollywood mobster movie with flashy locales
2 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

Basically, a Bollywood mobster movies pitting two spice merchants, along with their predictably gorgeous love interests, AAGHAZ has some good music clips, and is aided by stunning locales near Cape Town, South Africa. As a musical mobster movie, I would say it succeeds, if you can accept the whole premise of a melodramatic musical about mobsters. If the concept seems ludicrous to you, so will the movie. Piece by piece, the film does have some good points: the locales, cinematography, and music clips already mentioned, a couple of the performances... But as whole, this film is a disappointment.
