19 February 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ajay Devgan and Raveena were not acting in films together due to their media fights which I heard. Suddenly a film GAIR releases which is a delayed product started in 1992 and released in 1999. Imagine seeing a mushroom Ajay Devgan in one scene and next scene you see An Ajay of 1998. Throughout the film the looks change. The film is very painfully outdated, from scene A to Z. We have an orphan left desolated on a temple step and the pandit(of everybody) condems it only to be saved by Sulabha Deshpande and Amrish Puri rest is all clichéd. Suddenly the orphan Ajay Devgan becomes rich and then all problems start. The film also sees Reena Roy who was less seen in late 90s. Most of the shooting was done in 1993-1994 as Ajay looks straight out of Dilwale, however in some scenes we have Ajay looking straight out of Jigar(1992) while in few scenes he looks like how he looked in 1992, He also has a double role as his father who dies in an accident straight from Andaz.

Direction is bad Music is okay but the songs look outdated however Mere Dil Ne is easy on the lips, Laila was perhaps added later and is okay rest are boring

Ajay Devgan's performance gets affected due to the delay of the film, it shows how much he grew in between yet he does well in most scenes Raveena Tandon with a dubbed voice is mechanical(she too shows how much she changed since her debut) Amongst rest we have Ajinkyo Deo(who was hardly seen) he annoys, Paresh Rawal too is shown as the evil mama who too annoys Amrish Puri is good in his role, Reena Roy annoys Satyen Kapoo, Sulbha Deshpande are okay rest are okay
