Another Sanju Baba dubbed film
12 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Sanjay Dutt during jail period had several films left incomplete which he didn't dub for, NAMAK is among them(perhaps last one). The film however also has Shammi kapoor, Dinesh Hingoo, Jagdeep alongwith Sanjay with dubbed voices. The film has a plot resembling an 80s film, a horrible film which is boring, Also some scenes leave you baffled due to no continuity, Like A bearded Sanju reaching home clean shaven, many more scenes too leave you confused.

Direction is bad Music is okay

Sanjay Dutt with a dubbed voice is okay, but however did his dubbing sounds stupid, Farha is okay, Shakti Kapoor, Raza Murad, Gulshan Grover, Prem Chopra are as usual, Shammi Kapoor is okay but why his voice is dubbed? Nirupa Roy is okay rest are okay
