The English subtitle reads, "A rook moves slowly and looks insignificant. But if this very rook overcomes all the hurdles and reaches the other side.. it can assume the place of a Queen and even beat the King." The word should be "pawn" instead of "rook." The actor speaking, is holding a pawn. See more »

Mithun Chakraborty is a legend.
10 June 2009 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Vikram Bhatt's 'Elaan' which came way back in 2005, is still in my mind because of Mithun Chakraborty. I feel Elaan will be remembered for the outstanding portrayal of Mithunda. I can go on and on praising Mithunda.... but even as a film 'Elaan' is underrated. The film is entertaining and even for a minute you're not bored. The film has its share of flaws, but come on 'Elaan' didn't promise to be a milestone of a watch. A very well-directed film, with a stellar performance by Mithunda.

Pluses of the film: Mithunda, Mithunda, Mithunda, Mithunda. He's the biggest asset of the venture, playing Baba Sikandar to perfection. He's fantastic from start to end. Vikram Bhatt has directed the film very well. The stunts are very-well done. Performances by the other actor are also good: Rahul Khanna plays his part well. Arjun Rampal is very good, and yes his exit gives a lump in your throat. John is likable. Amisha and Lara are decent. Chunkey Pandey is passable.

Minuses of the film: Mithunda should have been there throughout.

on the whole 'Elaan' is a entertaining watch... more than anything else, watch it for legendary actor Mithunda's powerful performance.
