Huge Landscape Huge Film !!!
16 June 2016 | by sourabh-aryanSee all my reviews

You never feel you are watching first film made by somebody ,where everything is just consummate.

Best part is visuals of the film , the place Fatehpur , the landscape which is huge covered awesomely by cinematographer .

The score of the film is haunting and energetic.

Screenplay is detailed as said in previous reviews.

Dharmendra is extra ordinary, his dialogues delivery so wonderful that the viewer feels the urge of listening to them again and again , apart from him Nasiruddin Shah is refreshing, Smita Patil had limited scope but she shined as always. Mithun Da ,Reena Roy and Kulbhushan Kharbanda also performed very well .

By reading previous reviews i doubt that many people misunderstood the SP-wife-rebel triangle in the film , the police officer does not follow the rebel out of jealousy that his wife loved him , he follows him as he believes in law , although he is clearly biased towards his own clan and its people as he does not know the wrong doings done by them , he does not have any ill thoughts towards his wife and her past , even he asks her to help him to trace the rebel.

Overall one of the best films produced by Bollywood , Go for it !!
