Multi starrer treat
19 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dharm & Qanoon features 2 mega stars - Rajesh Khanna & Dharmendra, with Vinod Mehra, Jayapradha, Danny, Asha parekh etc., Rajesh has a double role of father & son while Dharam plays his friend. The story line is quite good & the tight screenplay keeps the viewer interested.

Rajesh get to do some action scenes here & is good. Dharam is as usual in his elements in the action sequences. But it is the scenes between the elderly Rajesh & Dharam that move the audience. They are a treat to fans of both the stars.

The director has cleverly balanced the roles of the 2 mega stars & kept the fans happy.

Music by Kalyanji anandji is average.

The climax is heart wrenching.

The film was a success at the box office & also made in tamil with sivaji ganesan in the lead.
