Unrealistic and Violent But Good
3 January 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

After some good blockbusters and hits from 1994, Akshay went through a lean phase and gave some of his worst films ever. Zaalim released in mid 1994 and flopped. But, it was not that bad of a story. The movie was given an A Rating for violence and one molesting scene. But, it was truly unrealistic. The story is decent until a part where things don't make sense and the use of action is not effective for revenge because of the violence. The story goes like this, Akshay Kumar comes from a good family and he is studying law at his college. There is some good family moments and mischief pranks which are truly well handled for a BollyWood movie. The villains doing some kind of karate at their den is shown well(For once the villains are strong), the romantic angle of Madhoo and Akshay is well shown but annoys with the use of songs. The movie falls flat after some of the memebers of Akshay's family is killed and he's Zaalim side is released. He does manage to kill the villains but gets hurt in the process. But, the most unrealistic thing is how can a women manage to flee from goona with a baby in her stomach as shown in the climax when Akshay and Madhoo flee from the villains. The climax is unrealistic and long but the action scenes are superb. The killings are all violent and Akshay's anger is well shown yet the second half of the film is just lots of action put together and less story. The subplots and the direction(in the second half) is a let down. But, the movie apparently still entertains. Amongst actors, Akshay does his decent side and Zaalim side well, Madhoo does okay, villains are all typecast and Mohan Joshi is a good one, aupporting cast is wasted. Music is good, Direction is average, story is good until the second half but catches up at the end but still is not met with expectations. This film was a low budget flop. But, Akshay(even in his bad movies except a few) is superb, this can be put in his average one. Overall, the movie is a flop but it's average(not good)!
