Bold grey character played by Anil makes it a must watch
2 May 2019 | by rtoac1See all my reviews

"Awaargi" is a 1990 Hindi film starring Anil Kapoor.

And it is his role that makes the film stand above the rest.

In the beginning he's shown as someone with a vacuum in his heart and life, looking to leave the gangster life and move on. Life gives him the opportunity but he realises first that society won't let him forget his past. And later that his violent past will not leave his character.

Hats off to the director Mahesh Bhatt and Anil Kapoor who despite being a star wasn't shy to take up such a grey character: beating the heroine, threatening to burn her.. I've seen film heroes only playing the part upto being shown as jealous.

Govinda, Meenakshi, Anupam and Paresh have performed equally convincingly their respective roles.

I rated it 8/10 in IMDB and am surprised to see its relatively low rating there.
