Storyline

Ajay alias Munna Babu is a semi-senile, gentle but naive young man who has a wealthy family estate. His employees and alleged well-wishers (Arjun Singh, Jatha Shankar, Munishi Gurbachan, Bhairav) conspire against him and introduce him to his long-estranged mother, Shakuntala, and brother, Vijay. Munna is overjoyed, not knowing that they are devious impersonators. This joy is quite short-lived, as they soon show their true colors, and Munna gets killed. His restless spirit seeks out his real brother and appeals to him to avenge his death. Vijay, at first, thinks he is hallucinating, but when his mother confirms that he indeed had a twin brother, he agrees to accompany Munna's spirit back to where he was killed, and thus assist him complete his vengeance. Things do not go as planned, and Vijay himself becomes their victim, and may face the very same fate as Munna. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Classic Bollywood movie
14 October 2006 | by patobieroSee all my reviews

This movie is fantastic. Dharmendra is awesome as usual, and it's tough to believe he made a movie like this in his mid-to-late forties. Go Dharmendra! Rekha also puts in a fine performance, as does the rest of the cast. Interestingly, almost everyone in this movie is either a villain or is out to make a quick buck... very different from the average movie which typically has one or two villains. 'Ghazab' is heartrending at times, but also exciting, fun and very amusing. The young couple who come in to pretend to be Ajay's mother and brother are hilarious. Ajay himself is both an extremely irritating and annoying; and very funny character - great comic timing. The story is good, the direction is fantastic and Dharmendra... whoa!! Must also remember the music - great songs, especially 'Jaanemaann' and 'Dekho dekho' (sorry if I spelt them wrong). Watch this one, you'll be glad you did!
