Classic Shahkaal flick - Dharam's last roar
20 July 2005 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

A film for the ages - Elaan-e-Jung is a film by Anil Sharma - an interesting director whose resume has mixed sensitive family films with violently jingoistic material such as this.

Coming off the success of their repugnant film "Hukumat", Anil and Dharamendra made this follow-up with more of the stuff that made Hukumat successful - loudness, extreme violence, jingoism and lack of any logic. This is a brilliant mix - akin to bhel-puri - which places this film in Shahkaal's top ten films of all time.

The standouts are Amrapukar as a classic Daku/Bond villain who utters peculiar exclamations, and Joginder as Sattar Medha - a cross-border gunrunner who drinks the blood of 70 men for breakfast and dies from a secret bomb implanted in his arm. Other stalwarts include Bob Christo, Dev Kumar, and many other legendary sideys.

Dharam looks very haggard and the whole film is roughly shot and edited as though all involved were having too much of a good time. All in all

  • a great achievement and almost as good as "Return of the Jewel Thief"


in its ability to reverse all progress in Indian film by twenty years - harking back to the films of Shahkaal's disturbed childhood.

Anil went on to make "Ghadar" which was a very well-made movie, and hopefully, he will get back to making films like Elaan-e-Jung once his flirtation with quality has run its course. I give all credit to Amrapurkar and Joginder who have the ability to leapfrog any film into Shahkaal's List just by their very presence. Alas, how little one sees of these masters on film these days!

If you have got this far in my review, you are a soul-mate so please see Shahkaal's reviews for various later stage Dev Anand and classic Ramsay brothers films. May such good films continue to be made!
