Cheesy and typical yet fairly enjoyable
24 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Bandhan is not a film one would want to watch for quality but merely for three hours of mindless fun. It is for the most part a typical and overdone Hindi masala flick which has action, romance, tons of tears and many songs. However, it still can provide a nice watch for the entire family for lovers of Hindi films. Every genre has its fans, I'm not a big fan of this genre but I can enjoy it when I'm with family and friends and there is nothing to be taken seriously. Some parts of this movie were actually quite entertaining to me (some were unintentionally so). The entire Salman-Rambha track when she pretends to be blind in order to trap him was pretty funny. I liked the brother-sister relationship portrayed in the film. However unrealistic this movie is, this part was, to an extent, well done. Everything else in the film was old-fashioned platitude, particularly Ashwini Bhave's character's corny belief that a woman must never leave her husband's house unless she dies, even if he brings another woman home. Jackie Shroff plays the husband who gets trapped by a young prostitute with restraint. Ashwini Bhave does very well as his wife Shweta Menon as the seductress is typical but effective. Rambha is passable in her role and she looks quite pretty. This film, however, is Salman Khan's film, and is made strictly for his fans, who certainly will not be disappointed by his work here. He is the reason this film remains watchable even at its most pathetic and intolerable points. There's nothing to rave about Bandhan, but I'm not going to be too harsh on it. It's time-pass, better watched with family and friends, nothing more and nothing less.
