Zabardast (Awesome) is not that Zabardast
25 April 2019 | by hemant299See all my reviews

Well, No repetition on story plot, it's already given, there is nothing more to mention here.

When it comes to Nasir Hussain movie, one expect a good musical romantic with good scenic locations. A veteran in this genre with some very good musical thriller in his cap - Tumsa Nahin Dekha, Dil Deke Dekho, Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai, Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon, Baharon Ke Sapne, Pyar Ka Mausam, Caravan, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Hum Kisise Kum Naheen, Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai to name a few, these were all Musical Hits, Zabardast is just opposite. Music is a big let down except for one Song (Jab chaha yaara tumne), is good. Jaya Prada is wasted in this song as well as in movie. Considered as a good dancer, Jaya Prada was made to sit throughout the song is not understandable (Probably she is paired with Sunny Deol, who can't dance :) ). Rest of the songs are average.

Sub plots were very weak indeed. Rajendra Nath role could've been avoided.

A weak attempt in my opinion. It's not very bad, one time watchable, but not something which may becomes part of someones collection.
