Trivia

Feroz Khan was told by distributors to cast Sri Devi in the film. He was reluctant as he was not impressed by her in Himmatwala. Giving in to distributors advice, he decided to call Sri Devi. Feroz Khan had offered the film to Sri Devi, but she refused. She was not excited to play a guest appearance, plus the role was very sensuous and very different from her screen image. It was when Feroz Khan spoke in Sri Devi' s mother tongue language of Tamil that she finally agreed. Feroz's command over the Tamil language surprised Sri Devi. This gestured touched Sri Devi and she signed the film. Feroz first met Sri Devi in Banglore on the sets of Janbaaz. He went on to sign Sridevi for Kasak in 1986. Feroz had prior tried to make the film in 1977 with Zeenat Aman, then in 1983 with Rekha and Praveen Babi. He finally tried once again with Sri Devi. The other film he signed Sri Devi for was Yalgaar. The film was shelved after the announcement. That film starred Feroz Khan, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff. Feroz ended up shelving it when Anil walked out after Feroz Khan dropped Jackie Shroff. Anil wanted Jackie and only Jackie to be in the film. He later started Yalgaar with a different star cast and script. See more »

A Feroze Khan Film
18 June 2009 | by Umar Mansoor BajwaSee all my reviews

Starting from Apradh(1972)as a director and actor, Feroze Khan who recently passed away was the flamboyant guy of the classic era(70s & 80s)of Indian cinema. He was greatly influenced by the action, glamor and adventure of western movies. Even in Apradh, he would film scenes (glamorous & murder in a bath tub) which were a far cry for those days Indian movies. He was definitely ahead of his time in getting closer to the western style/touch. He always choreographed good/hit songs bred with sensational music score and sometimes showing foreign artists/dancers in his movies. Qurbani (1980) was a block buster primarily due to the super hit songs.

Janbaaz, a later day movie in the career of Feroze Khan was also a box office hit. With young, dashing and robust Aneel Kapoor to act as the prodigal Amar Singh, he got the right guy to portray the like of a spoiled scion of a powerful family. This spoiled young character had to face a suave and honest elder brother/police officer - Rajesh, beautifully played by Feroze Khan. As an affront cowboy like brother who sports hedonistic tendencies inherited from their pleasure seeking and rogue father (Amrish Puri), Amar would emerge as a contender between the sincere love affair of his elder brother -Rajesh and Reshma, played by versatile Dimple Kapadia.

In all, the story is interestingly meshed up with the dons of underworld drug trade, a criminally lenient feudal father and a reckless younger brother....... the glamorous Dimple providing obscene pool and kissing scenes with a cameo appearance by Sri Devi and Rekha.

Good entertainment and good songs. Indeed not boring to watch.
