One Of The 80's Best Hindi Film.
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Boxer is Undoubtedly One Of The Finest Acting Performance Of Mithun Chakravarthy And Danny As Well.

It Narrates The Story And Struggle Of A Thief Turned Boxer As He Makes His Way Through Petty Crimes , Jail , Business And Finally To The Boxing Ring.

This is Unlike Stallone's Rocky (1981) As The Motivation And Reasons For Boxing Are Completely Different And In Terms Of Story I Find It Even Better Than Rocky.

Danny Steals The Show As A Defeated And Lost Boxer Who Has Given Himself Upto Alcohol And Destiny.

This is One Of The Best Films Of The 1980's Hindi Cinema.
