Good movie
13 October 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Subhash Ghai earlier made some very good films KARZ is his best, though VIDHAATA too was a good film

KARZ is a remake of REINCARNATION OF PETER PROUD(1975) and also has songs lifted from Italian songs.etc

The story may sound nothing special today but was terrific for 80's and the direction, screenplay, writing was topnotch

The initial reels on Rishi are good but the best part is when he realises he is Ravi Verma is scenes with Simi are splendid, first when he reaches her house wild and then their love story and the volatile climax

The film just keeps you on the tenterhooks throughout and the last speech by Rishi is awesome

Direction is very good by Subhash Ghai, sadly none of his today's films hold a similar impact Music is very good, EK HASEENA THI is the best and DARD E DIL OM SHANTI OM are too fab

Amongst actors Rishi is the life of the film and he excels, his expressions especially when he realises he is Ravi Verma, his breakdowns are simply magical His last speech is his best It's a shame that Himesh tried to play the role in the remake and he faltered Simi too is excellent in her part WHile the heroine too is good Amongst rest Pran is excellent Prem Nath is okay, Macmohan is good and rest are all good
