Mithun Syndrome
9 September 2008 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

There was a time in Indian cinema when no brains like Jigar was deemed as entertainment, thankfully the eighties are no more when screen violence had no reason, and men saw rape as a joy to view on screen. Still it mange to create curiosity with the then newcomer Ajay Devgan, who starred in the blockbuster Phool Aur Kannte (1990), and who was gaining stardom as an action hero. How much has changed from the past to what he is currently, a talented actor with quality films like Zakham (1998) and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999) behind him.

The soundtrack of this film was quite a big seller and made the once S-Series record label, owned by producer Salim, quite successful for a short period of time. He even produced some decent movies like Phool Aur Angarrey (1992), and Bazzi (1993).

The film's main characters are the fight sequences that seem poorly executed and rushed. The choreography is somewhat dull and lacks what other excellent king-f films have in its pacing, editing and cinematography. It even goes to borrow scenes from numerous classic Jackie Chan films like Snake in the Eagle Shadow and Drunken Master. The performances from the entire cast are hammy and off-key, but that is expected for a movie of this genre. The romantic elements do take up most of the film time and some trimming could have been done. Technical values are average and now are appearing rather dated.

The plot is reminiscent to numerous Cantonese films that are within the king-f genre, and like films of this genre Jigar is gaining a cult like status with video rentals and satellite showings. It might not be one people are planning to watch but when it's on you can't help but watch along. It's what I like to call the "Mithun Syndrome" (see below to further understand what is meant by this term). You really don't get anything out of this feature; it's not even a time pass film but the Mithun Syndrome is quite high on this feature.

Mithun Syndrome = when you wouldn't rent that film, but when its on the screen you follow what is occurring with a strange willing to compromise and be contempt with whatever the film shows.
