A Beautiful Romantic film with Great Story, and Nice Songs.
24 August 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews


Just watched Bobby Deol's New movie 'BARSAAT', it touched my heart, just not because of Bobby, but the story, true feelings for love, sacrifice, songs, screen-play, direction.

'BARSAAT' is a light romantic film with drama, emotions, and nice songs.

It feels good to see Bobby in a light romantic film, he is just brilliant with his performances. Bobby did romantic films in the past like; ...AUR PYAAR HO GAYA, KAREEB, and DILLAGI. Those movies were really good, and I enjoyed a lot watching those, Bobby was Superb in those. I don't know why those movies were not appreciated? it is just because critics cannot digest Bobby in romantic films. Well, who the hell cares about what the critics state? All I want to say is that I have never seen Bobby b/f in any film like this. I would say that Akshay Kumar could not deliver the performances in 'BARSAAT' which Bobby has. Bobby was meant to do 'BARSAAT'.

The story, screen-play of the movie is interesting. The Director has shown the love of 2 women for a man. One is born, and grown-up in Foreign, while the other one is born, and grown-up in India. The culture, traditions, and customs are different, but, the feelings for love are same. You will have to see the movie to find out who gets Bobby? either Bipasha, or Priyanka, obviously one has to sacrifice.

Songs are great, nice, melodious, sweet-sounding, and already caught the attention of audience from the very first day.

I have seen Suneel Darshan's previous films, but his direction in this film is awesome. It won't be wrong to state that this is Suneel Darshan's best direction to date.

Bobby is just simply brilliant with his acting, vocals, dressing, and looks. It seems that Bobby was meant to do 'BARSAAT'. He performs like a seasoned performer and delivers a knockout performance. In fact, it won't be wrong to state that this is amongst Bobby's best performance to date after 'BARDAASHT'.

Priyanka is surprise package in the film, she impresses with her performances. This film breaks her modern image. She looks pretty, nice, and beautiful in Salwaar Kameez.

Bipasha is also good. She performs well.

On the whole, 'BARSAAT' is a family entertainer. It is a very beautiful made film with great feelings for love. It is something to watch. It has all; Drama, Comedy, Emotions, Nice Songs, Romance, and Outstanding performances by Actors.

Go, and Watch, u will enjoy it, don't believe what the critics state, remember SEEING IS BELIEVING, You won't be disappointed.

Allah Haafiz. Zeeshan Kazi - A BOBBY DEOL DIE HARD FAN.
