A Great Movie
20 September 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In terms of sheer entertainment value, Jyotin Goel's Inaam Dus Hazaar (1987) is a perfect 10. It's probably the most entertaining Hindi film ever made, containing a bit of everything --- thrills, comedy, romance, drama and suspense. No doubt the movie is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest but then what matters is the fact that it is a cleverly made film, and it did good business when it's released. The plot is about mistaken identity wherein the villains (led by Amrish Puri) assume the hero (Sanjay Dutt) to be a undercover police officer and the events that follow. There are many scenes in the movie which are unforgettable and the dialogues are also first rate. The highlight of the movie is the sizzling chemistry between Dutt and the leading lady (Meenakshi Sheshadri). They made a great pair for sure. Not to forget a memorable musical score by the legendary RD Burman (one of his scores that never got its due). Both Sanjay Dutt and Meenakshi Seshadri are highly underrated and unfortunately, the only movie they starred together, is also very underrated, even though it was a box office winner. Nonetheless this movie is a must watch for its sheer entertainment value. Trust me, it is a great cinematic experience. I first watched it in 1994 and it has stayed with me since. I've lost count of the number of times I've watched it thereafter. Guess it is one of those movies which you can watch repeated and enjoy again and again. Perhaps, like vintage stuff that gets better with age.
