A well-directed thriller
21 December 2002 | by mohsinleghari3000See all my reviews

Baazi, directed by Ashotosh Gowarikar is an action and thriller. By seeing the movie, one can imagine that a really hard work is done by all the cast. Aamir Khan in the leading role is superb and Mamta Kulkarni is even more lovely. She has done a brilliant job in proving herself to the role she had been given. What can I say about the other cast. Raza Murad, Paresh Rawal, Asrani, Satish Shah, Ashish Vidhyarti, Mukesh Rishi and Kulbhushan are all excellent. The script and direction are good and production value is also outstanding. The music by Anu Malik is absolutely brilliant. All the songs are very nice. Despite all these things, I wonder why it didn't become a blockbuster on the box office. One reason may be that it might be a remake of an English movie. Whatsoever is the reason, I don't know. The movie is a good entertainer in my point of view.
