He refuses to assist anyone, until Prajapati, one of the residents... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fantastic movie
5 June 2018 | by fivestaaarSee all my reviews

This movie was released at a wrong time when Abhishek Bachchan movies was not doing well at the box office. Fate of Bachchan changed after this movie and his acting was appreciated in this movie pacing the way for his first sucesss in the movie " Run" . Shararat is a different from the league film which will surprise you with nice story, good direction, good acting and tight screenplay. This is the movie that will entertain you and your family . Abhishek Bachchan and Amrish Puri did a remarkable job, one as a spoilt brat and the other as the one who brings Abhishek back to right path. Hrishitaa is good too. Casting director did a good job. Each and every actor play their part to perfection. Mohnish Behl did a good job as the evil advocate. Ashish Vidyarthi is ok with his cameo appearance. Romesh Sharma and Navni Parihar as Dad and Mom of Abhishek Bachchan are noticeable . All the credit goes to debutant director Gurdev Bhalla for making a nice family entertainer which you will cherish with your family, with elders and children .
