Today's Genie
27 April 2007 | by alokcSee all my reviews

This movie directed by Shammi Kapoor is meant for the kids. It has Rajesh Khanna the Super Star who finds the genie in Shammi Kapoor and then hilarious situations arise. The movie is entertaining but lacks a strong screenplay and a purpose. The music by R D Burman is good and some songs are remembered still. Shammi Kapoor is a great actor but his skills as a director are yet to be established. Bundelbaaz may not have been a success but is worth a watch - the kids will enjoy it and so will the parents. A must see for the fans of Rajesh Khanna and Shammi Kapoor. The CD/DVDs of this film are available and is worth a watch and would keep one busy for 3 hours.
