Preity shines out of the whole cast
14 February 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Armaan is an inspiring movie, with amazing performances, and nice music. The downfall of this film is that it slows down one minute, and goes too quickly the next. You are either confused from what has happened, or you are wishing it would hurry up. It could have been better there.

I'd say the best performances were from Amitabh Bachchan, and Preity Zinta, who I have always thought was very charming.

The story is relatively simple, and is one that many films have tried, worked, and failed in the past. Armaan is one that works, but only because of the acting, and maybe the script.

Amitabh Bachchan did a really nice job as the caring, dying father. He was perfect for this role, however, there are times when the character seems fake. Anil Kapoor makes a forgettable performance, I preferred him in other movies, which he did excellent in. Here his performance is not as good as I expected of him. Gracy Singh makes another "bechaari" role, I wish she would branch out more. For her role I would have enjoyed a Tabu, or Juhi Chawla, even Urmila Matondkar or Rani Mukherji. Certainly not her, that's for sure. My favourite performance was Preity Zinta; I have liked her since I saw her in 'Dil Hai Tumhaara', in which I thought she was amazing. Here she does another remarkable job, she has outdone herself, and is the star of Armaan. There are times when she even overshadows Mr Bachchan. Her new look adds glamour and appeal, and I say she looks not beautiful, but very elegant. Her first try at a negative role earns rave reviews from me.

The music is excellent. The best songs would be "Mera Dil Ka Tumse Hai Kehnaa" and "Mere Zindagi Mein Aaye Ho" which I enjoyed.

Honey Irani has done a decent job. I recommend it.
