Surakshaa is the story of injustice which has been the recurring theme of all Bollywood movies. The handling and the flow of these films decide whether the film is watchable. Surakshaa has a good dose of action and comedy but the romance and overacting make the film partly watchable. Another major problem are the villains who are completely sidelined. Tinnu Anand and Mukesh Rishi usually have larger roles to display their talent but here, they aren't given much important despite being the villains. Another major disappointment is the fact that Sunil Shetty only makes a special appearance. He fights when necessary and provides some funny moments like the scene where he has to save one of the heroines from some goons. The main protagonists of the movie are actually Saif Ali Khan and Aditya Pancholi, the problems in the storyline and the problems with other characters mainly connect to them when Sunil is just some random hero who fights when required. This is probably why the film didn't do so well, sidelining Shetty was a bad decision. Another problem with the film is the loopholes in the script. Certain scenes aren't explained well and the comedy is overdone terribly in parts. In certain parts, the comedy is actually crosses the height of stupidity, it's not funny but extremely silly.
Direction by Raju Mavani is decent, he handles the comedy well in parts and the action in most parts. The romance however is not well handled, it is typically overdone. The drama scenes and the twist is extremely well handled for a 90s movie and the climax despite being the typical 90s action movie style is good.
Sunil Shetty doesn't have much of a meaty role but he does a fairly decent job. The stunts he performs are amazing and his expression is mostly decent. His romantic scenes are slightly awkward because he is unintentionally hilarious in these scenes. However, his role is mainly a friendly appearance, not one that connects well with the main plot. Saif Ali Khan for once does a fantastic job, his character is really important to the story and the twist. His comedy is good but his drama is even better. This is his second decent performance after Main Khiladi Tu Anari(1994). Aditya Pancholi is fairly OK, his situation makes the audience sympathise him but he doesn't act properly in the worried and angry scenes. Kader Khan is fantastic, his comedy despite being silly is good. He plays the dumb manager extremely well, he knows how to portray absurd characters well. The heroines including Sheeba are nothing great. The rest provide fairly decent support.
Background Music is good and better than the actual songs in the film, the fight theme song is good and the suspense song is good as well.
On the whole, Surakshaa is entertainment that successfully works in most parts. Despite the silliness and stale comedy in parts, the film works well because of many highlights like the plot and decent performances.
