Saved by actors
13 May 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Mehul Kumar is a pathetic filmmaker, he always relied on actor's to save his films be it TIRANGAA or KRANTIVEER then he gave duds like MRITHYUDATTA

The film is terrible and just the same filmy nonsense, This film came 10 years back when Amitabh was trying to make a comeback and in this film he suitably played his age, he didn't try too hard like in HINDUSTAN KI KASAM or other films those days

Nana Patekar also for once plays a comic flamboyant role

The film also has side fiddle roles by Mukul Dev and others who fill the bill

The film is a typical Indian film with lot of stupid comedy.etc

Direction by Mehul Kumar is okay at places Music is okay

Amitabh does his part well though he looked too wrinkled yet it suits the role Nana too seems to be having a ball Mukul Dev is bad while Ayesha Jhukla is okay Tabu is good too as the cop Danny is typical
