Briefly Terrific
9 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie is simply amazing. The concept, the characterisations, the script, the screenplay, the performances, the dialogues, the comedy, rd burman's fabulous music -- everything, every aspect of this movie is simply outstanding. This movie made by Jyotin Goel is criminally underrated -- probably because it was made in the 1980s when there was hardly any publicity as is the case these days. Still the movie was a success and deserved every bit of it. The plot -- inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's classic North by Northwest, albeit with many changes to suit Indian tastes -- involves a happy-go-lucky man Ashok Saxena (Sanjay Dutt) whose life turns topsy turvy when the gang of villains (led by Amrish Puri) assume him to be a CID agent. He's also accused of murder and the police is after him -- with a Rs 10,000 reward on his head. While on the run he bumps into an aspiring model, Sonia Srivastav (Meenakshi Sheshadri, and the two fall in love. But life isn't as rosy, and his girl, not as innocent as she seems. The suspense element comes as a surprise and the climax is nailbiting. Dutt is in excellent form and this movie was a perfect follow up to Naam. Meenakshi was charmingly effective. Watching her perform one can't help but wonder how could Bollywood waste such a talented actress. The crackling chemistry between the lead pair poses yet another question. Why didn't they do some more films together? But that very reason makes Inaam Dus Hazaar an affair to remember. A movie that can be watched when one wants to lift of his/her spirits. One last word: two of RD's compositions in this film "Chand Koi Hoga Tumsa Kahaan" and "Jaane Bhi Do Yaar" are real gems. Again criminally underrated. Overall a good masala entertainer and certainly one of Sanjay Dutt's best movies.
