a pretty good thriller
21 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Achanak is a pretty decent thriller with a romantic angle and loads of action. Govinda, for a change, comes out of his comedy routine and gives a serious performance as a rich guy caught in a web of deceit, lust and murder. Manisha Koirala was pretty good as the sweet girl-next-door who falls in love with our hero. She looks beautiful and shares an amazing chemistry with Govinda. Her next release with Govinda in 1998 was Maharaja. But Manisha seemed too comfortable with Govinda in this movie than in Maharaja. She seemed too stiff with Govinda in the latter.

In Achanak, Govinda gets an opportunity to enjoy Manisha in every song. He takes advantage of her body and I must say he enjoyed her touch to the fullest in the song 'Duniya Bhula Ke Baho Mein', as he kisses her face. I don't know why he screwed this opportunity in Maharaja! But Maharaja does have a kiss scene between him and Manisha.

Tabu's sister Farah Naaz also acted in this movie. But comparing her performances in the other films that she has done to her performance in Achanak, this one could've been better. Rahul Roy had nothing to do. Paresh Rawal was good as the villain. Navin Nishan is efficient. Dalip Tahil is as usual. Johnny Lever managed to tickle us in a few scenes.

The songs in this movie are awesome too. 'Dil Leke Gaya Chor' is the best song in this movie. Cinematography is excellent. Choreography could've been better! Editing was a bit slow.

Overall, a good suspense thriller! You can enjoy this movie with your family!
