cinematic excellence wondrously depicted on screen by the maestro
8 April 2015 | by (delhi,india) – See all my reviews

what a movie, i m impressed!! i had watched the movie long time back but somehow watching it now poked me to write something about it.. Take a bow mani sir & his able team.. Not frequently one gets to witness such tight screenplay & stellar acts by the main & the supporting cast.. And it really is difficult to point out the best of them.. such is the direction accorded.. Tight screenplay, edge of the seat narration , acting, action sequences & still fresh music by rehman sir, keep the spectator stuck to his/her seat. told in flashbacks, another deviation from the leak, this flick winds together stories of three different couples to a common point & takes forward.All three tales are good, excellently detailed & acted upon.. Such is the brilliance exhibited that one can not really single out a particular one, but still abhishek's was the best.. Though ajay as usual was at his cunning best.. Abhishek's was best as he has not performed that well till now.. special mention of the lady love portrayed by rani, she oozes liveliness in her role & gives it her bindaas touch.. Ajay gets to vocalize some good lines but he walks away effortlessly, a tailor made act for him.. Vivek as a flirt,suits the role well & his romantic angle 7 metamorphosis into a serious guy, is laudable too... Not to forget the supporting cast, especially the versatile om puri, enthralling with his shrewd, bad politics & some nicely done Bengali diction.. But what keeps the the three stories together is the sheer excellent music & background score by the maestro himself, one which is still hummable & feels new & fresh, guess even after 15 years..Such is the novelty factor associated with the tunes, ones still popular in discotheques.. In all, a great piece of work. thank you mani sir.
