where there's Pran, there's life!
18 September 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that i skipped school and saw in a matinée show. The title role of the film is played by one of the great stylized villain's of Hindi Cinema. PRAN. I guess this was the time when Pran had broken out of the 'bad guy' mould and was playing strong character roles. Zanjeer, Majboor, Victoria No 203, Jungal mein Mangal...(where he played three different lead characters) I love this movie, which is very much in the Brij, Manmohan Desai entertainers of the early 70s. It's an extremely pacey cops and robbers drama with the lead cop played by the equally superb AJIT. Navin Nischol and Rekha have adequate roles and are extremely watchable. The film has one great quawali song sequence during the pre climax. 'Raaz ki baat keh doon to jaane mehfil mein kya ho.' performed by Bindu and Pran. In short this is a guilty pleasure and hence a rave review. I remember the newspaper tag lines read: WHERE THERE'S PRAN, THERE'S LIFE. (for the non Hindi speaking readers, Pran in our language means life)
