Typical bollywood masala
2 August 2012 | by gurdeepmann59See all my reviews

HIFAZAT is the typical 80s masala with action, comedy, romance and drama Nutan is the owner of such a big property But gets inflicted tortures by Bindu (the other woman in the life of someone's husband) and her son Shakti Kapoor Anil is the missing son of Pran and Nutan and he pretends to be their missing son to save Nutan from the tortures

Anil Kapoor is fine Madhuri Dixit is lovable Gulshan Grover is funny as the comical villain Kader Khan is really funny and makes the movie enjoyable Shakti Kapoor makes a sinister villain Bindu is typecast Ashok Kumar isn't bad Nutan, the golden actress, plays her role to the hilt Pran rocks all the way Sharat Saxsena is boring
