No Jaadu! (Magician without Magic)
17 March 2004 | by ArvindVyasSee all my reviews

Bad script! Bad Direction! Things gone haywire!

Prakash Mehra and Amitabh Bachchan made a very good pair in past. Great entertainment in history. The movie could have been a good one, considering it had a novel theme. A Fake Godman (Amrish Puri) exposed and in turn defeated by a magician (Amitabh Bachchan) in his own game! The icing was the magician is brought to game by none other than the son of the Godman (Aditya Pancholi).

But the script was lost, at times songs and dialogue become vulgure. Acting is average and the movie, it appears was made only for the front benchers, and was perhaps even rejected by them.

There are some shades of past brillience, on screen its not worth, but on vedio / DVD - thanks to technology - we can fast forward what we don't like. This movie perhaps can be watched in double quick time.
