3 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Indra Kumar gave many hits in the past like DIL(1990), BETA(1992), RAJA(1995), ISHQ(1997)one look at most of them and especially RAJA was nothing to rave about DIL was typical romance with some overdone drama and comedy fit for the 90's while BETA which started before DIL and released in 1992 was a good melodramatic film as made in early 90's RAJA was crap while ISHQ was decent MANN was crap again, AASHIQ was hideous which brings us to RISHTEY(2002) which was actually to be made in late 90's maybe it would've worked then too But sadly it's a bad film to release in 2002

The story is a mix of AKELE HUM AKELE TUM(1995), KUNWARA BAAP and many more films

Sadly the comedy which is the biggest problem in most Indra Kumar films(before MASTI) is too bad half an hour is spent on the useless Shilpa- Anil track while the emotions take a backseat The story is done to death as usual Anil and Karisma separate due to Amrish Puri's plan(again) and then Anil brings up the child alone(who is shown to be lame first for no reason) rest is typical melodrama which leads to a volatile action climax which is clichéd Direction by Indra Kumar is ordinary Music is okay

Anil Kapoor is a miscast to play a boxer and he is brilliant as the father but looks too old Karisma is as usual, hams to the hilt and her crying for her child(similar to RAJA HINDUSTANi and SHAKTI) is boring Shilpa suffers from the hangover of Sridevi Amrish Puri sleepwalks Sadashiv Amrapurkar is too loud Adi Irani is okay The child Jibraan is good
