Underrated Thriller
1 June 2011 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar had flops each year of the 90s period and the reason was his wrong choice of films. Some of his films were good but didn't get the attention it deserved, Nazar Ke Samne falls in these bracket of films. The film isn't anything great but it is a decent action thriller for it's time. When films like Amaanat, Zaalim, and Hum Hain Bemisaal flopped in 1994, Nazar Ke Samne joined this flop club when it shouldn't have.

The story is about some guy called Umesh who gets framed for a murder he didn't commit. The accusations plotted against him are proved wrong and the verdict is in Umesh's favor until a person Ravi Kumar comes and identifies Umesh as the killer. Umesh is sentenced and arrested by the police. Umesh's sister finds out that Ravi was paid to lie in court and she tries to change Ravi. Ravi however shows reluctance but changes. Now it is up to Ravi to find the real killer before Umesh gets hanged. The only thing Ravi has is the picture of the killer's shoes which is far from enough to catch the real killer.

The movie is definitely not a perfect thriller but it tries and successfully manages to be a decent thriller for it's time. The movie probably didn't succeed because it was something different from the usual Masala action films. The film does drag in parts and the forced romance between Umesh's sister and Ravi does slow down the tempo of the film but the movie manages to catch up soon. The songs weren't needed and they are the major drawback of the film, the music isn't great and it slows down the film as well. The ending is typical yet fun because the action is mind blowing.

Direction by Jagdish A Sharma is good, he handles almost every scene well and the suspense is well built. The only problem is the forced romance which slows the film down and shifts the focus from the actual story. This is one Sharma's best films. Sadly, this and Sapoot are his only good films while films like Judge Mujrim and Devta are crass.

Akshay Kumar does a good job and his dynamic change is also well shown. Many people say that Akshay was extremely raw in his earlier days and wasn't much of a good actor. I deny this because these kind of films showed his real acting skills. Yes, he does overact is certain scenes but that is forgiven as he does act well in most parts of the film. Farheen was an unknown heroine of the 90s period and this is one of her good performances. She does good as the troubled sister of the innocent Umesh but her romance with Akshay is stereotypical and boring. The actor playing Umesh does a good job as well, his stress and anger is well shown. Kiran Kumar for once is terrific but Mukesh Khanna like always overacts terribly. The rest provide commendable support that the film desperately needs.

On the whole, Nazar Ke Samne is one of those underrated thrillers that was completely unnoticed by the public. I guess the audience didn't like these kind of films and that is why the film flopped. However, the film is watchable and provides fantastic entertainment as an action thriller. I recommend this underrated thriller, it is amazing for the most part.
