Feel Good film
17 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Perfect film to watch where you don't have to do much thinking. The film is fun and the relationship between Munni and Ashok and Anil is pure magic. Although similar to Annie i find this version much more appealing because obviously Munni is more cute than Shirley Temple was. Jackie Shroff plays his role int he second half perfectly although the first half is a bit over exaggerated and over acted. The songs were all great especially Khush Rehne Ki and the one with Munni and her King Uncle. the only downside i felt was Fanny's character who was just a caricature in my opinion and could have been done so much better. The villains were sometimes slightly over dramatic but for the most part believable. And to be honest i found the rest of Munni's little orphan friends slightly annoying.
