Mithun's magic!
28 February 2009 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

B Subhash's 1983 cult hit 'Disco Dancer' is an excellent, fantastic watch. A complete entertainer, gripping from start to end. 10 on 10 stars for this all-time cult classic!

Songs: Bappi Lahri's songs have been remembered and always will be. All the songs are awesome.

Performances: Mithun short to Superstardom after Disco Dancer. Mithun, he's so rightly regarded as a Dancing Legend. Rajesh Khanna is restrained in a cameo. Kim is good. Late actor Om Shiv Puri is axed. Karan Razdan makes no effort to leave any mark. Om Puri excels.

'Disco Dancer' is a cult classic in all respects.
