Among the better bad movies of 90's.
29 July 2018 | by Anonymous002See all my reviews

Warning :Spoilers

I said this movie is bad but much better than most movies of that time period. 90's was the time of mindless action cinema. 9 out of every 10 films are silly action films better known as masala movies . Daag -The fire is among the watchable movies of that era.

Ravi Verma is a ruth less , corrupt business . Satyaprakash is arrest es for a crime that in reality is committed by Ravi Verma. Karan , Satyaprakash went to kill him incidentally shot his wife . Ravi lost all his memories but remembers Kajal(His wife). His friends find a duplicate of her that can help him to recover . Ravi , having no idea of what he did in the past , regrets his own crimes and decides to give justice to Satyaprakash . But his son , Karan wants to kill him . Now who will win ?

I just loved the idea of the film - A bad man turns out to be a good one after complete memory washout. But the execution is bar from being good. The biggest problem is that it is very very similar to the other films of same genre . Characters are just insanely emotional .

The story again , goes on the similar line with most action films . Jhumri , a look alike of dead wife of Ravi Verma talks in a very irritating manner at the start but suddenly turns into a great women and wife . Even his accent changes with time. Huh. She completely ignored her real family for her new husband and it is totally acceptable according to the films .Karan came home despite all the security only to get a Rakhi tied from her sister. A brother is so dedicated to his duty that he can kill his brother and will not drop a single tear . The new Ravi Verma just became so good that he is ready to sacrifice his family . Karan found Ravi's kidnapped wife and children without any clue . At the end , everyone involved in the case gets punished but Ravi Verma is roaming free .
