A superb coming of age film
24 November 2008 | by shekhargupta469See all my reviews

1980S was a good time for parallel Hindi cinema. Many great films like ARDHSATYA, TRIKAL, AAROHAN were made at this time ,VIJETA is such a film. A film on how life really is in NDA. there is nothing melodramatic in its treatment. Its as relevant today as it was in the 80s. the young people will really identify with kunal kapoors character. the anguish,the confusion and the constant scoldings that his father (the character played by his real life father Shashi kapoor)gives him. every one has done a good job ,but the true revelation for me was shashi kapoor who has given a superb performance. he was ably supported by rekha who plays his wife. young kunal kpoor also gave a satisfactory performance but falters sometimes.

the flight scenes were very realistic. a total entertainer ,this film can be described as a boy's journey into manhood,conquering his fears and coming out the winner.
