Lost Found Formula Revange Movie
3 September 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

This movie has been made particularly to Encash Jeetendra those days Jeetendra were in much demand & almost all his movies gets success. Amrish Puri has a Hench man role of Jeevan. Jeevan was not in demand those days & his carer almost finished, Rajesh Khanna has given only 2 hits Souten & Avtaar after a very long time. As the script demand Rajesh as an older brother Jeetu as younger brother played their role respectively, Rajesh Khanna never looked handsome & smart in front of Jeetendra & he has a inferior complex for Jeetu evergreen image, Actually both were friends before coming to Bollywood, If you see the graph of Rajesh Khanna carer, He was in peak for only 4 years from 1969 to 1973 but the same period Jeetendra carer was not in swing, Jeetendra is always giving hits almost from 1965 to 1988 It is the record for him in 1980, 11 films were released & 7 films were declared hits, till date no other actor has given 7 hits in a single year, It is a record that till date no other actor break. that's why he is considered real evergreen actor of Bollywood. when his films getting flops in 1990's he himself retired. not like others. He acted with almost all his Co-Stars with no complex. See the list Dilip Kumar, Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Sunil Dutt, Raj Kumar, Amitabh Bachan, Vinod Khanna,Shatrughan Sinha, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, Govinda , Anil Kapoor, Mithun, Sunil Shetty etc., etc., The actors & director many times tries to side lined Jeetendra, but his confidence & his professionalism kept him in demand for almost 30 years as the leading actor delivering super hit movies.
