Tailor Made For Sanjeev Kumar
11 December 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Sanjeev Kumar was one of the most versatile and gifted actors of Indian cinema. He excelled in a variety of roles and gave us numerous memorable films. In Khalid Akhtar's 'Ladies Tailor' he once again displays his comic gift. 'Ladies Tailor' is obviously a comedy and the role of Mehboob seems tailor-made for the actor who seems completely at ease with the character.

The first two hours are full of entertainment. The humour is very effective even though the writing is flawed. The romance between Mehboob and Nikhat was poorly developed and plot holes are apparent. The whole Lucknowi milieu is portrayed wonderfully. The songs are very nice. The lyrics are especially beautiful.

The performances are very good. Needless to say, this is Sanjeev Kumar's film but Pran lends great support as he displays his flair for comedy. As Nikhat, Reena Roy is lovely. However, as Amira, she's miscast. A pretty Aruna Irani does a fine job.

It's in the last half hour that 'Ladies Tailor' heads downhill. Things go haywire after the murder sequence and there's no turning back from the mess.

Yet, that doesn't change the fact that the first two hours made me laugh. No matter what he does, Sanjeev Kumar knows how to entertain viewers.
