Not what was expected
1 March 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Watched Gair thinking it'd be a crime thriller or something on the likes, but was totally off that genre. It's more of a family story.

Entrepreneur C.K.Oberoi (Amrish Puri) raises a child as his own when it is found abandoned, and the child Vijay Kumar(Ajay Devgn)grows to live up to his expectations, but soon has to face the ire of the envious and power hungry relatives of Oberoi who do not want Vijay to prosper.

The weak points? The film script is Uncoordinated. There are quite a bit flaws, like giving Indian idol as Prize for a western dance. There is boring comedy, and an Unnecessary display of dialogues to show Devgan's acting. The film also turns dumb after 2 hours..It is revealed who the hero's mother is , and that even though she knew him and was always aversed to him, she had never realised till then that he was her son !

The strong points? The dialogs are really good, especially of Amrish Puri and PAresh Rawal does a fine job as the villain. The film also has melodious songs , which was a good thing about Hindi films of the 90s
