WoW! - Mithun Rules - PLAIN & SIMPLE !!!
2 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yamraaj is a fantastic film I'm telling you, a superior action flick. It has a gripping storyline which keeps you glued to your seats & entertained all the way through. The whole cast have done an exceptional job in the film, especially Jackie & Mithun. Jackie as usual, has done a great job and does justice to his character but it is Mithun who steals the show with his power packed performance, his bihaari accent bang on target! - very authentic. This is one of his best performances of the 90s, the other is in the film Jallaad. In my opinion he should have won an award for his performance in Yamraaj as well. Anyway, Gulshan Grover does a good job of portraying the main villain "Yamraaj". The film has some great action scenes (not copied from any film) and most importantly it has some great acting & dialogues. The songs weren't all that good but it's not something I cared about. It has a few minor plot holes but it doesn't affect the film in anyway whatsoever. This film was not directed by T.L.V Prasad (luckily) cos if it was, he would have messed it up big time and I wouldn't be writing all this. The only decent film T.L.V Prasad ever made was Jallaad. BOTTOM LINE:- Watch this Explosive Action Flick and you'll be surprised at how brilliant yet underrated it is. Its one of those films which make you reach for the rewind button time & time again!!
